JUNE 2017 - The Flowers Of Romance , live Project idea (Venue 1)
Summer is but a memory and Winter is Coming ☺. The new season finds the band rehearsing an idea that we liked a lot. Between 1981 and 1998 Mike had a band called The Flowers Of Romance. They were one of the most successful Greek bands and opened for The Sisters of Mercy and New Model Army.
Adding to their credits, Wayne Hussey produced their album, “Brilliant Mistakes”. We came up with the idea of touring with The Flowers Of Romance songs.
