It’s a Wrap for Flap!

Following a seven-year innings, Flap! has decided to call it a day. It has been a wonderfully vibrant career for the folk jazz party band, one which kicked off in Copenhagen and played out to The Secret Garden Party, The Brixton Academy and even The Femø Jazz Festival. Then there was their nude gig at Bar Open. From the band: “We’ve got some big news for you: We’re breaking up. We’ve had some real good times these last 7 years but it’s time now to call it a day … There’s too many of you to thank individually, but you know who you are: Thank you! THANK YOU to all the people who’ve ever played with us, to the bands we’ve supported and the bands who’ve supported us. To the people who’ve helped us out when we needed a loan, or a hand, some advice or a bed to crash on. To the radio stations, the venues and festivals. To the people behind the scenes; the tech people, the bar staff, the managers, the producers, the booking agents and all the rest of you. Most of all, to you: the beautiful people that came and saw us play; who made so many of our nights so very special. We love you. We’re very grateful to you all: you’ve made us very happy.” Theatre Royal, Castlemaine – January 17.
