Happy Birthday To Us!

With Gill’s birthday recently in the bag at the end of August and Jean and I about to celebrate ours mid-September I thought we would address the theme of birthdays. I love birthdays and not even just my own. I think it must stem from childhood and all the fun birthdays you get to attend as... Continue Reading →


Our Top Ten Song Requests

Quite often we are likened to a jukebox. People rock up to our shows and shout song names at us. They may be great songs, they may be awful songs, they may even be songs that should never have been songs or songs we have never even heard of. They could be in Chinese or... Continue Reading →

Three to Replace One

As the ‘arrival of’ and ‘getting to know’ the Boxtones Baby has been so prominent of late, we thought we would discuss the other side of the coin (you know...the work side) and shine some light on the talent that has helped us get through Gill’s maternity leave. We knew it wouldn’t be easy to... Continue Reading →

The Many Faces of The Boxtones

As ‘The Boxtones’ we like to pride ourselves on our longevity of band members. We are not a bunch of freelancers who club together for a job one at a time or change members every contract.
