It was with great sadness that we announce the passing of SAHB drummer Ted McKenna.
Ted was an integral part of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, and also worked with Rory Gallagher, Michael Schenker Group, Ian Gillan, and many more...
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ted's family at this time.
Happy New Year to you all. We hope you all had a great festive holiday.

Hi Folks! The band are back in the studio this week preparing their set for the Winterstorm Festival this Friday.
The guys have chosen a high octane set of material to perform on the night and ensures to be a knock out gig..the band are raring to go and unleash their set to the masses.
Also this week it was announced that the band will be 'special guests' to the legendary 'MOTT THE HOOPLE' at the Barrowlands, Glasgow on the 20th April. Tickets for this event are on sale now - grab while you can because there is a chance this will sell out...
Good Morning Boys & Girls..
The Band had a successful run of shows down south last weekend and it’s looks as tho the word is rapidly spreading about the band and the reactions have been sensational to say the least..
The band kicked off their first of three shows with Snakecharmer in Edinburgh and went down a storm, performing a short but powerful set of music from our debut album with a new song thrown in as well.
Last Friday we headed to London ULU and again blew the roof off the place and performed to satisfied fans of both us and Snakecharmer.
Last but by no means least we played The Stables, Milton Keynes on Sunday evening, performing a slightly shorter set but didn’t stop the fans getting right into the songs and singing along so all in all, three great shows and we would like to thank Snakecharmer for asking us to open up for their shows.
Next up for the band is the Winterstorm Festival, Troon which will probably be the biggest gig for the band this year, sharing the bill with some fantastic artists and the guys are ready and raring to go.
Thanks again for everyone’s support and hope to see many of you there on the 23rd November 😁
Hi Folks...after a much needed break, the band are starting preparations for their next batch of shows...as special guests to SNAKECHARMER.
The band will be opening up for them next Thursday 18th October in The Caves, Edinburgh, followed by the ULU, London on Friday 26th October, and The Stables, Milton Keynes on Sunday 28th October.
The guys are very much looking forward to the shows and hopefully they will attract some new fans along the way.
Rehearsals begin next week for their 45 min set which will consist of their best songs from the debut album Vol.1 and possibly some fan favorites time permitting :)
The band enjoyed a great weekend of gigs down south. First up...Fibbers, York, performed what Zal says was the band’s best gig to date and also marked the debut of drummer Louie Malvessi who received an incredible reception from the fans.
The following night the band were at Louth Town Hall and once again, played a blinder and the fans loved it.
Big thanks to Andy and his family for their hospitality in Louth, band were made to feel right at home. Also a big thanks to Mike Drew for all his hard work and for taking amazing photos / videos of the band, and also to Marc Thomson who took care of the ‘Merch’ stall for us..we really appreciate it 👌
Next up - Alva Masonic Hall this Saturday.
The band are about to get back into rehearsals next week for their two shows in Fibbers, York, and Louth Town Hall on the 21st and 22nd September respectively..tickets are available now..this also marks the debut for our new ‘Stick Man’...Mr Louis Malvessi.
Make him feel welcome and I’m sure you’re all gonna love his playing - Rock & Roll 🤘🏼

The band wish him all the very best for the future.
The band would like to welcome Scott's replacement...Mr Louie Malvessi.
Louie has joined the band on a permanent basis and we all look forward to working with him.

The band have just finished their July weekend of shows down south and judging by the response of the fans, they smashed it!
First up was back at The Cluny, Newcastle where they performed last year during their debut Tour..the gig was just as good, if not better than last year...
The following night saw the band perform their first festival...Cambridge Rock and once again the band were on top form, impressing fans with their blistering set..hopefully next year, the band will be the Headline act..
Last but by no means least...Eleven, Stoke. The band knocked it out the park once again leaving fans shouting for more...and with a venue with a sound limiter of 100db, that didn't stop them from hitting the audience between the eyes with their powerful set which included two reworked SAHB tracks 'Isobel Goudie' and 'Faith Healer' which went down a storm.
Next up for Sin Dogs is The Brasenose Arms, Cropredy on Friday 10th August.
Zal was on BBC2 on Wednesday night taking part in the series 'Rip It Up' which was about Scottish Music and how it has progressed over past 50 years.

Zal & the guys have also decided to add two SAHB song's to their live set, and to the very small minority who have heard them play them at rehearsals have said that they sound fantastic, modern, and kicked right up to date.
The band are about to start rehearsing for their 3 shows at the end of July. First up is The Cluny, Newcastle on Friday 27th, then Cambridge Rock Festival on the 28th, and finishing up in Eleven, Stoke on the 29th.
