Roddy has an interesting story to tell and retired from the rat race in 2008 to the Isle of Mull. This life changing move re-invigorated his creativity - you can read all about it here

An intimate, candle lit Duchess saw Roddy at his best, with his smooth vocal and tight instrumentation... top show Roddy!

24 February 2012 - The Hare and Hounds, Holme Upon Spalding Moor York

This was a chance to catch Pelico play in the intimate surroundings that are The Hare and Hounds Holme Upon Spalding Moor, York.

We played a stripped back set giving all in attendance a chance to sing along and play an instrument or two? The Kazoos unfortunately failed us a little due to the less than perfect way they had been manufactured, but the enthusiasm was there and together we pulled through. We had a great evening. Thanks to Justin and thanks to everyone who made the effort to come along and see us.

11 November 2011 - The Duchess, York

The Duchess, York

Pelico played live at The Duchess, York, with The Asa Hawks.

The Asa Hawks are a five-piece band based in West Yorkshire. With their "unique country noir sound" and electrifying live set, they have been steadily building a solid fan base since they formed in 2009. Playing now to increasingly packed rooms and appreciative crowds.

Further suppport was from from Young Believers and The Chacers.

An enthustiastic crowd turn out once again to see us play live at The Duchess for the very first time. And what a night it turned out to be. We felt great and rattled through an upbeat support slot that we will certainly be putting in the 'most memorable' box.

2 October 2011 - Pocklington Arts Centre - Studio Night

Live & Acoustic at Pocklington Arts Centre

The lovely people at 'Friends of Pocklington Arts Centre' asked us to play a set at their Studio Night on 2nd October. These nights are designed as a chance for young musicians to perform in the intimate surroundings of the venue's studio. Guest acts are invited along for the evening and this time it was our turn.

There was some fantastic young talent to showcase. If we have to pick one act out then it would have to be Fractals who gave a storming set just before we took to the stage - a hard act to follow if ever there was one. However, we got up there and did our thing. The night was a more 'stripped back' acoustic version of our songs and we had a great time. The intimate setting of the studio (about 70 capacity) was perfect for us. A huge thanks to everyone who came down and listened to us, and thankyou for all your kind comments afterwards.

A great night indeed.

No shortage of musical chops, then … And with latest album Honey And Salt produced by Grammy winner Richard Dodd (Tom Petty, George Harrison, Steve Earle, Traveling Wilburys), San Diego’s DRW have a heavy, late 60s California country-rock feel with a reckless garage twist. No line dancing going on here (!), their X-meets-Wilco a dream combination for fans of roots-inspired, punk-spirited rock.

16 May 2011 - Pelico supporting Hope & Social, Fibbers

Brilliant! I have to say that all bands; Hope & Social and The Nick Tudor Band were great. Hope and Social have long been one of our favourites!

We all had a great night. Especially considering that Rob made a special trip back from the Philippines that morning to get back in time to play. I think he got back in York for 3.30pm!

We hadn't rehearsed for three weeks so the heat was on - that stage was really hot, it was the lights you see....

We played to a fairly full (for a Monday night) Fibbers... am told there were approx 180 people in that night. Thanks for making the effort... its bands like us that need people like you!!!!



26 March 2011 - Emily Maguire - support

Truth be told, this was Rob's first gig after only a couple of rehearsals with us. What a night we had and I think the audience loved it too. We sold over 85 tickets of the possible 100. The show was a SELL OUT!  People were turned away disappointed at the door.

We love this venue! The Basement York

5 March 2011 - Mel's Party

A small town called Daglan, France, where we were asked to perform as part of Mel's birthday celebrations... I can't tell which brithday it was as that would be telling! We were joined by our good friends and touring partners Judge Fudge.
Fab night in such a nice place.

Thanks Mel

3 March 2011 - Frog and British Library - Paris

Played to a packed venue over 150 people in the centre of Paris. A great response from the crowd and a fab night! Thanks Nathan for making us feel so welcome!

Situated between the Line 14 Metro exit Bibliothèque Nationale and National Library itself, the cheekily named The Frog & British Library draws together the best of two worlds. Part ‘brasserie classique' (two large terraces, an excellent lunch menu, stylish design) and part pub (range of microbrewed beers, leather sofas, giant screen and excellent music).

You can download this image to use on your ipod version of 'Smile'. It's better than using that annoying note image that itunes use.

The day we visited BBC Radio York

Our visit to Russell Walkers show on Radio York today was ace. It was all about the 'Best of York' charity album. We had a little chat about the Album and played a couple of acoustic tracks. Thanks for having us in Russell.
