HOMEMADE SIN without DAN BAIRD will be coming to Sheffield on Tuesday 7th November. Dan himself will be absent while recovering from his illness (see his message below), but Warner and Mauro will make sure the Homemade Sin train rolls on and Dan has a band to return to. Joe Blanton (The Bluefields, Royal Court of China) will be filling in for Dan and Sean Savacool filling in for Micke Björk.

The basis of the show will be Homemade Sin, but with a broader scope, some Scorchers, some covers, but still a whole wallop of Homemade Sin and Satellites and whatever it ends up being, it'll be a kick ass rock n roll show.

Gang, DB has to take the rest of the year off to remove his blood cancer (CLL). Treatment and recovery will hopefully be concluded by the new year. Can't say for certain exactly when, but that's the first extra broad stroke diagnosis. I want this crap gone ASAP. Very doable, but I have to commit the time to do the treatment.

Promise to let y'all know when it's done.

That brings us to Homemade Sin and at least the rest of this year's shows. I've stated before that HMS is a working band, and we have work this fall, although I can't be there. Warner and Mauro will be, as well as Sean Savacool on bass while Micke navigates his own family/personal waters.

I've asked Joe Blanton my good friend, songwriting partner, fellow bandmate (the Bluefields), Homemade Sin's engineer and producer to step in and give a hand in helping the band fulfill the dates we have on the books.
I'll ask 2 favors of those wondering if this will work.
1 - Give Joe a shot at being himself while doing the shit I usually do on the stage. He's his own man, but has a more than healthy respect for our/my catalogue past and present.
2 - Please don't expect me to sing as on pitch as he does when I do come back. Ain't gonna happen.

Following on from Dan Baird and Homemade Sin's TWO sell-out shows in 2016 - including the spectacular triple bill - we are extremely proud and excited to welcome Dan and the gang back to The Greystones in 2017 with extra special guest, and Greystones favourite, Otis Gibbs!

This is an outstanding line-up and will be a fantastic evening of quality music in the intimate Backroom.

With both artists commanding dedicated and committed audiences at The Greystones, and with a new DBHMS album (Otis worked with the band on the record) on the way, a brand-new solo album from Dan Baird, and Otis's amazing back catalogue and history of fantastic gigs at the venue, this show is sure to sell out!

You're going to be sad if you don't see this outstanding show... You'll be even sadder when people tell you how good the show was. So, please, get your skates on and don't let it happen to you! You must be there... it's the law.

Tickets available daily from the venue until 6pm.
