We had such a fab time at (sold out!) Square Roots new venue launch in Petersfield. The audience was absolutely lovely and it was a real treat sharing the stage with both The Goat Roper Rodeo Band and The Jigantics for the last few numbers of the night. Thanks go out to Ken Brown for both his organisation and enthusiasm in pulling such a wonderful event together and Jan Thompson for capturing some photos of our performance.
The girls are really looking forward to tomorrow's gig in Petersfield with the talented Goat Roper Rodeo Band and The Jigantics! Just a few tickets have yet to be scooped up so why not go HERE and seal the deal! If you happen to be in the area, you could also just pop in to One Tree Books or Vinyl Matters for a good ol' fashioned exchange of actual money! See you there...
We had a smashing time for our knees up return to The Kingsdown Wine Vaults in Bristol last week. It was, without a doubt the best way to welcome in 2018 and ward off the blueness of Monday to come. We are truly grateful to the wonderful audience (some who travelled quite a distance!) to pack in and stick around for our evening of music and we hope to do it again soon! Now onto our next gig 17th February in Petersfield. Join us! x
The Sound Lounge is an artist-friendly community hub which brings a much needed creative outlet to Tooting.

On Thursday, 24th August from 7:30pm, Belle's & Gals presents at evening with The Savannahs at The Sound Lounge in Tooting. We are particularly excited about the format of this event which will offer each Savannah some time to strut her solo stuff before kicking in with 3 part harmony to perform all the band favourites. It is a night not to be missed! Tickets are £10 and you can find the link HERE.
Thanks so much to Chalk Farm Folk for a fantastic night of music last week! The Monarch was buzzing with warm vibes and lent the most loving audience to not just us girls but Rachel Laven, Mahoney & The Moment, and Emperors of Rome who helped create an unforgettable event. We are thrilled to have walked away with some recordings from the evening (only our 2nd gig!), the first of which is ready for your eyes and ears. This one, 'Savannah' is one of the originals we are beginning to incorporate into our set, written by Emily Moment. Listen, love, and share. xx
Great Village Cricket Tea w/ The Savannahs and Mary Berry!
Thanks so much to Penn & Tyler's Green Cricket Club for having us down for a lovely afternoon of music. Our fellow bands, Loud Mountains and The Cherry Valentines helped put on a great show and we all had the delicious treat of snuggling into a cozy snap with the great Mary Berry. Looking forward to next year's fete fellas!

We are so thrilled to share our new video 'I'm On Fire'! A cover by a little known American musician called Bruce Springsteen, we girls put our on spin on this old classic...and seeing how it's just gone 4th of July, what better way to celebrate than singing along to one of our favourite tracks from 'Born In The U.S.A'. Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce.
Thanks so much to Thomas Collison for the video!
