Petite Blonde II Tour: Sold Out!

Line @ New Morning Club, Paris.

Talk about a smashing success! The Petite Blonde II tour has packed every venue so far, selling out both nights at famed Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. The band are all having a blast and you can hear it in every note. A huge thank you from Bill and everyone in the band to everyone who came out, lined up, and grooved the night away. We still have Sweden, Italy and Spain to go – check out our tour dates for more info.

Thanks to Valentin Dumontier for this pretty stellar recording (below) from the New Morning in Paris, FR. Enjoy!
