These are all CONFIRMED dates!

I'll get more info to you as soon as I get it ie web sites etc
The support on the tour will be Wes's own band and I will have Tony Turrell, Liz Antwi, Steve Vantsis and Squeeky if his dates change otherwise it will be Wes's drummer on the kit! I will definitely be singing!!!:-)))))
As you know this "tour" needs all the help you can provide on all levels. If you have promo ideas contact either the clubs or myself so that we can sell these shows out in every city.
I will be recording all the shows and will be definitely taking an "Official" bootleg from this tour. I am looking at selling this in advance as we still have to fund all the preparations for the visit which as you will realise across 5 shows is expensive.More news on this later in the next week or so.

Please don't ask about other possible shows as these are all we can do with the time limitations and the availabilities of people. There is no record company support so I am on my own out there with no safety nets!

That's it for now folks! The Jocks are coming!! :-)))

lots of love

Subject: Fish 99 - More US details

Dear Fishheads, Freaks, Fans and the Company
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology and the efforts of Jim Englund and Robert Strobbe for the following -
15th January Washington DC 9.30 club -
815 V St. N.W., Washington, DC (202) 393-0930 (intersection of 9th, V and Vermont streets.). Their "concertline" is (202)393-0930

and Joe Mitura for putting me right on the Philly show -
"The TLA is located at 3rd & South St. Address 334 South St. Phila. PA 19147-1536. Phone for the TLA is 215-922-1011. I found this info out at They usually run the smaller theaters in and around Phila. There are directions as well as concert info there (yet your Jan show isn't posted yet, too soon I suppose). I have a feeling the info you provided is for electric factory's office."

Thanks guys!

all the best
