Possible New Venue


On Wednesday 17th April we will be playing at The Sunset Bar (behind The Courtyard and opposite The Barcelo Santiago Hotel) from 9.30 - 11.30.  If the evening is a financial success for the bar then it could become a regular venue and replace one of the lost nights at Route 66. It is a very smart bar offering could prices and measures on their drinks. Help us help you to have a place to come and see us by turning up on Wednesday - YOUR BAND NEEDS YOU!Smile


Please see below our latest news

No more music at Route 66

Please note that there will be NO MORE live music at Route 66 in Playa Santiago as of 11th April 2019. The decision has been taken by the owner. Apologies to everyone who was hoping to see us there and we will update if and when we find a new venue. Click on the title link to find out moreMore >

News Update 30th Jan 2019

January 2019 Update

Unfortunately due to the owner of Route 66 wanting to cut our fee by 40% we have reluctantly decided we will not, for the time being, be performing at Route 66.

Summer 2017 Update

Interesting how rumours start and facts get twisted. Here's the word from the "Dogs".....Yes, we are selling our house. Looking ahead to the next 15 years, it is time to downsize and release some capital. No, we are not leaving the Canary Islands. No, we are NOT retiring. We may slow down a bit, but we plan to keep performing for as long as we can play guitar and sing. Click title to read moreMore >

May 2016 Update

Well long time no update but time just seems to be flying by. Full houses at both Route 66 and Highland Paddy until Easter but since then it has been a bit up and down with neither rhyme nor reason as to why. Jill’s guitar playing is coming along nicely and certainly adds a new dimension to the show. More >

July 2015 Update

May 2014 Update No 1

The adventures of Rupert Roll continue ... today after a prolonged and often heated meeting Rupert was rescued in one piece. He had survived threats of being toasted and put through the slicer.
