THE PLACE OF SPADES - The Crowdfunding Project


The album will be officially released on Sun 30th June 2019, but all pledgers should receive their copies a fortnight before this date. We are ahead of schedule, so all is good!



YES! The album has gone to the manufacturers. If you missed the pre-order you will now have to wait until 30th June before you can get a copy.  This crowdfunder is now officially closed. 


Last year, we released a 10-year retrospective 'The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican 2008-2018' on CD, cassette and double-disc vinyl. It featured 21 of our most-loved songs from the past 10 years, all re-recorded by the current line-up of the band. It is, without doubt, the best we have ever sounded. Fans new and old welcomed the improvements to the production, and it was extremely well received when it landed. Those of you who own it (and 2017's 'AVE IT : BOLD AS BRASS), will no doubt agree that on both occasions where we have worked with the wonderful Joel Howe (who mixed and mastered both albums), it has brought something special to the overall sound.  


We have returned to the studio to bring you our tenth studio album, packed with brand-new comedy Dooni-Hits in the making, and we need YOUR help to crowd-fund the production of it. We are sticking to our D.I.Y. ethos, and have produced it all ourselves, and Joel is back at the helm, to mix and master the final album. We have it all in the bag, and it sounds great... it'll soon be ready to be released into the wild (and for all of you who pre-order it, we will send a download code to a completely exclusive extra track that won't be on the finished album, or made available anywhere else, when we post your CD out). 

Let's make another piece of Doonican history, folks!
