JANUARY UPDATE

Hi all, well Xmas has gone by and here we are, now in another "lock down" and we guess it will not start to end until the vaccines have been given the the majority of people. I guess we fall into that group!! Now please don't think we are doing nothing just because we have no gigs.......we are as busy as ever!!....videos to be done, recording new songs, making videos for the songs, keeping our social media upto date so you can see what we are doing. Enough to keep us both out of trouble! now one new thing we are going to try is a new happy birthday video. You provide the name and we do a personalised video of Una singing it just for you. It may work but lets see.

Now we know some people are starting to flag a bit with all this lock down stuff so we keep putting up videos and funny videos/pictures up on our group page. If you are interested in joining (it is free and you can join and leave any time you wish) then all you need to do is go to this link, fill in the questions and then all the history will be available to you!!

We hope you can join us there. Now time for us to get busy so please stay safe and well. Don't worry to much.....the sun will rise tomorrow and the days are getting longer!! till the next time........Tony and Una   

December Update 

Hi all,  

         Well what an odd time this is, Xmas is on it's way but we can not go out to shop!! all very strange. Still we plough on making music and playing live......albeit in our front room!! Now we want to thank the few people who have ordered our single We've made it from the download stores. If you have not spotted that we have a single out then please try all the main download sites. Look for Tony and Una and the single name We've Made It   We are going to release another single in January called Wishes From The Well. More details about that in January. We are also doing a live show for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland on the 2nd of December at 11.00am. This is for people with Alzheimer's and Dementia and people who look after them. The song we are releasing in January is all about this as Una's father died from Alzheimer's.  

         As well as this live performance we are going to put up the Xmas tree and do a live show again from our front room. Now sadly our internet speed is so slow we can not do it "live" as there is a delay and it all looks funny. We will however record the shows and then put them up on our facebook group so you can see them there. Now if you are not a member of our group all you have to do is join. The Facebook address to use is https://www.facebook.com/groups/tonyanduna The group name is real music...old style!! We will record the shows and put them up before Xmas for you. 

As usual, recording is ongoing and we are excited that we will be able to release a new single approx once a month for all of next year!! Now we do need YOU to buy/download them, if not fine, but we will have to go and get day jobs and stop recording, not something we would wish to do so remember if you don't buy we will have to stop recording. 

Gig wise sadly again we have no gigs.......we did have ONE gig in December.....due to the new tier system, we can't do it.......apparently they can't make scotch eggs!! This is really annoying now as the last gig we did was in March. We understand the reasons why but we do feel cut off and isolated by this.......musicians seem to be a long way down the government's list of priorities. The good news is hopefully we will get a jab and they will let what is left of pubs to re-open. We are sure a number of places we used to play at will sadly remain closed. It will be like starting over again for us so wish us luck!! 

Well that tells you enough about what we are trying to do and what our plans are for the year ahead. Who knows if in December next year we can look back and say we are back to normal....We are also very aware that a lot of friends have been self isolating and trying to avoid contact with other people. We hope that your lives start to return to some sort of normal as well and although we can not see you we wish you all a great Xmas and hope your dreams come true in 2021!! 

Till then have a fantastic Xmas, stay well and safe and hopefully we will see you somewhere down the road.

Thanks Tony and Una

November Update 

Hi all,  

          We hope you are all safe and WOW!! what a year so far........  

Well November has popped its head above water and as I am late doing this the fireworks have all been and gone. I guess you will know we have been busy trying to understand the intricacies of marketing music on the internet. After many errors and mistakes we are getting there but lord is it a slow process. We have switched from Youtube to Facebook for loading and promoting our videos. This seems to be the best solution but the workload in trying to understand Facebook has been like taking a PHD course. Sadly I am still learning what to do. This has not stopped us releasing music and we have a single due out on the 18th November called We've Made It. You can pre order by going to this link  https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/tonyanduna/weve-made-it and click the spotify link OR as a web site special you can just go to our download page and download it NOW!!. We are also working on a number of new songs that we will put out over the next few months so stay tuned!

Sadly we were unable to do any gigs last month and November is now going to follow the same path. We are sorry, nothing would make us happier than to start playing live again but the pubs and restaurants have taken a battering and who knows what will be left once this is all over. We are doing a number of live from home gigs for some Facebook groups. You can see more about that on any of our Facebook pages. We have also started our own group called real music...old style!! This is a private group we are going to use to try to put good music/comedy/travel/art and a little Craic as well so again come and join us there, it will be fun!!

If that was not enough, for once Tony is having a day off!! yes, even he deserves a break on his birthday this month. Sadly he can not go anywhere but I am sure he will do something to celebrate the day. 

Well that is it for this update, off to the group to put funny videos up now so please come and join us there!!

Thanks Tony and Una
