FFAB - Food For All Band

Posted by Malcolm McGregor on October 20, 2013 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Matchless Gifts is a charity shop run by Jennie and in her 8 months of being there she has along with many of her friends and volunteers turned the place around to the point where people are taking notice: "Food For All" feeds 1,000 people daily 6 days a week and our intention is to eventually feed 5,000 per day for FREE. We now have a fully functioning band called FFAB that raises the issues of those affected by lack. It would be a great help on our journey upwards if my friends could give our new band site a boost by just one click as this will help us generate interest from the musical community we are currently working in. FFAB is a charity band that are available for charity and festival projects and are working along named artists to get their message accross...PLEASE can my friends click on this and help us to add power in the lives of those that have next to nothing...THANK YOU all so very much Jen Jen xx

Jen's announcement

Posted by Malcolm McGregor on March 13, 2013 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (0)

It is with great sadness that I announce my departure from the UK performance circuit; there will be no more 1-STOP-EXPERIENCE shows in the UK after June 2013 and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has shown their support over the years, either by their presence at our shows or buying our CD’s. I would also like to thank the promoters and especially Steve Foster and Andy Sws for having us grace their stages offering us a chance to reach a wider audience, you guys totally rock. There will be a second album, I have written enough songs for two but alas I will only record one and so will pick the best out of the lot. We have made many friends along the way and have had some incredible moments in your company. The band, who remains great friends, will work together again in some format or other and of course starting on the new album in the summer. I apologise to all those people we did not reach with our live performances, sorry, but for health reasons I feel it is time to throw in the towel and make way for the new breed. 1-STOP-EXPERIENCE will however play in Europe when asked as it is less tasking than the UK. 23rd March at the Fiddlers will be our last London gig as 1-STOP-EXPERIENCE and we shall keep to our commitments from now until the end of June, sorry we cannot take up the gig offers for the end of the year and gutted that we have had to cancel some. On a personal level I shall miss you all but if any of you are in London and want to say goodbye then do pop in to The Fiddlers on the 23rd March and join us for a last knees up. THANK YOU again for all being so amazing. Jennie Matthias
