UPDATE May 2023
Welcome to my little update. It’s proving to be a busy ol’ time for gigs and events for me and Sundog Slide. Check out the gig list below to see where we’re playing next.
It’s been great to introduce some original songs into the set and they seem to be going down well with the audiences. It’s all part of the Sundog Slide plan to promote our original material more this year and we’re excited about a few festival type gigs we’ve got were our original songs are actively encouraged.
10th June we are at Bellfest with 2 hours of original and covers music. 11th June we are headlining the Juglans Stage at Home Farm Festival where we’ll be doing 45mins of original music and songs. Friday 7th July we are excited to be at The Uffculme Beer and Music Festival where we’ll again be playing an hour of original material. All brilliant stuff, and we’re excited to have the chance to show the original side of Sundog Slide.
On the first of June this year we will be doing a global release of our recent EP TOPSOIL. This new expanded edition features extra guitar, harmonies and double bass. It will be available on all streaming services. You can also listen to the original version here: https://www.tracyneil.com/sundog-slide-original-music
One of my other projects, UNKLE FUNKLE, which at its heart, is a stripped back funk trio playing classic disco funk covers has recorded a little demo to help us get work. If you know anyone having a party and is in need of some super groovy dance music send them our link. Of course, you might just fancy a listen anyway. UNKLE FUNKLE demo
On a sad note, we were scheduled to play at Chagstock this year but the organisers have had to cancel the festival due to costs and low ticket sales. Also, this year we have lost one of our favourite gigs; The Old Workshop in Bishopsteignton. They have now closed their doors for the last time. It’s a real shame when we see gigs, venues and other lovely music events cancelled. It’s a tough business and can only really ever survive with the support of all you good folk.
On a more optimistic note – We still have lots more gigs in the diary to look forward to, including some new recordings coming out later in the year. We also a new project brewing, which will feature Tim on drums and myself on double bass. We are currently looking out for that elusive third person. They’re out there somewhere.
So, onwards and upwards! See you soon for live music, cider and good times.

If you're really curious you can delve into my distant past, when all the world was a psychedelic funk odyssey. As the bassist T-nebula I helped underpin a creative collaboration of like minded musical travellers collectively called FUNKWEED.
