UPDATE

THE LAST SIX MONTHS - HOW TIME CAN FLY!

Apologies to all our friends for the tardiness updating our site from March to September 2013; we’ve been rather busy travelling and gigging. A little rest would do us no harm but updates first along with news and more new photos etc. J

Empire of The Golden Horde

 

 

‘SPIRIT OF SMOKIE’ TO HEADLINE HISTORIC FESTIVAL

 

We at S.O.S. are excited by the invitation to perform in the ancient capital of the once powerful empire of The Golden Horde: Sarai–Batu. The festival in Astrakhan Oblast (region) provides one of the most unforgettable concert sites that we or any other band are ever likely to witness. Within the walls of this 13th century complex city lies a rich and turbulent history: A dozen ethnic groups; Bulgars (Tatars, Bashkirs), Mongols, Alans (Ossetians), Circassians, Russians, Byzantians (Greeks) lived in its own quarter. The city was full of wealth, luxury, and splendour, but it also commanded fearsome military might and boasted (by the standards of the Middle Ages) a diverse population of 75,000 people.'

 

“The second annual international open-air festival of modern music culture 'The Golden Horde 2012' opens its doors under the walls of the 13th-century reconstructed capital of the Golden Horde - Sarai-Batu, Astrakhan region, Russia from the 24th to 26th of August. The festival reunites all fans of rock and includes performances from 18 Russian cities plus Minsk (Belorussia).

 

'Love of art led to Rock’ ‘We are blessed with land, scenery and unique architecture for the biggest musical event of summer 2012!  This attracts historians, music fans and musicians alike.’ - Correctly points out the director of the cultural centre of Sarai-Batu.

 

‘We are pleased to play the best of our music to the roar of the fans’

 

Welcome to The Golden Horde 2012 !!! “

Gozo review

 

Spirit of Smokie concert sets GOZO alight!!

 

“The Maltese island of GOZO played host to ‘Spirit of Smokie’ on Saturday 14th July.  A heat wave in the area made conditions extremely hot for both band and fans who crammed into The Island’s premier venue ‘La Grotta’.  At 1 am the band came on stage to rapturous applause in an electric atmosphere! They rocked the fans for almost 2 hours with hits from the album ‘Room with a View’ and Smokie’s original classics.“


S.O.S. would like to thank everybody who attended the concert and made for such an enjoyable eventful night.  We look forward to our return to such a beautiful unspoiled area of the world!

EURO 2012

 

Spirit of Smokie to play in Malta.

 

We are pleased to announce our concert in Malta. The forthcoming event will be held on the 14th July 2012 in ‘La Grotta’, a major night scene and ‘Live’ venue in   Gozo.

 

EURO 2012

 

Well! We have arrived back from our second visit in a month to Kiev, Ukraine!!  Where we were once again the chosen band invited to play the hits of the original 70’s ’Smokie’  along with requests from our new album : Room with a View. This time we celebrated the International Football Tournament ‘Euro 2012’ at the famous Ukraine Palace auditorium to an audience which was attended by local fans in Kiev and an equal majority of fans from across Europe ( see review below).

 

“Real Rock has become a classic from long ago and the 20th century music of 70-80s, which seemed so innovative and unexpected, has already entered history.

Hi, I’m Anja Belder (31-07-1964). I’m married and have two kids, a son in law and two grandchilderen. We live in the North of the Netherlands.

I’ve been a Smokie fan since 1975 and never stopped being one. My fav. Smokie song is ‘Can’t Cry Hard Enough’. I especially  like the videoclip that came with it.

An Early Review

We have found an interesting review (below)by a journalist and fan who travelled from Kazakhstan to the UK, witnessing the first small “impromptu” live session! The band has now progressed to full concert and festival status, keeping the spirit alive !
