Title: Important news from Bravado
Post by: Pod on April 04, 2014, 22:33:21 pm
On behalf of Bravado, we'd like to announce some important news.

After 10 years, Paul has let us know that due to a number of reasons he is no longer able to continue playing with Bravado, but after long discussions, Dean & I have decided to continue the band.

I know that this will come as a shock to many of you, but this is a decision we've arrived at together over the last few weeks, and Paul remains our brother and we continue to support him in all he does.

Dean and I feel that Bravado as a band have more to achieve, and although we're already talking to a couple of possible candidates, we're interested in talking to anyone who feels they would fit the bill.

If all goes well, its our aim to be back on the road by this autumn.

Love,

Pod & Dean

Gutted.  Really gutted.  Who on Darwin's green Earth can possibly replace Paul?  He lit up the stage with his formidable talent and infectious smile.  An absolute pleasure to witness perform.

Exceptionally nice guy, too. I wish Paul and the band all the very best on their respective future paths.

I echo what young Matthew says.
I never thought I'd see a smiling Yorkshireman, but Paul was the one!

Still, if a replacement can't be found I'll save some dosh :) (1845 since my last Yorkshire ancestor left, but still my arms are shorter and pockets deeper than normal...)

Sorry to read this. I've seen Bravado 4 or 5 times at The Robin, and it was always a very enjoyable experience. Hopefully Paul can be replaced and the band can continue, and Paul can be happy in what he chooses to do. Good luck to all of you.

Sad to hear this news, Paul is not only a fantastic guitarist but a great performer, his replacement will have huge shoes to fill. Matt has put it better than I can, and I wish him all the very best for the future a lovely, modest richly talented guy.

Sorry that I wasn't able to see this incarnation - not into tribute bands as a rule but you chaps always receive such glowing reports I was keen to see you perform.

Good luck for the future.

I don't think I can add anything to what Matt said - very well put.  I've got some fantastic memories from the Diamond and elsewhere.  Best wishes to everyone involved of course.

After a conversation with my favourite drummer the Bravado wheels are back in motion. After viewing several videos the guys have picked some potential guitarists and the auditions start early May. So it may look like it's all quiet but there is copious amounts of work going on behind the scenes, the boys are working hard to get back on the road and hope to see you very soon.....

Did this really need to be posted on three different threads? I ended up leaving the Bravado Facebook page and blocking people whose posts kept appearing three times in my newsfeed.

By the way - you're right about multiple threads - perhaps a mod could subsume to one?
