This episode picks up the next morning after our show in the Monkey show at Metz. The last thing you seen was Jay failing to order a drink in french, however we still managed to partake! Follow us as we depart Petange in Luxembourg, and travel to Dolhain in Belgium to play at The Dolympiades music festival. It was a fantastic festival, which was very well organised and ran very smoothly. We were welcomed by the organiser who didn't speak any English (and we don't speak any French really) and made good friends despite the language gap. We were never without a drink and the show was great! A special mention to the Roxxbusters band who were most entertaining as you will see in the video. This brings an end to this leg of the tour. We are in the studio in August and are on a UK tour in October, so loads more diaries to come! Visit www.littleeyeband.com for all your Little Eye news!
Part II of our trip to Europe in the summer of 2017. This episode picks up exactly where we left off on our drive down to Luxembourg. We arrive at Schrainerai, and perform an acoustic show, the following day we spend an afternoon in Petange Luxembourg before making our way throught to Metz, and the Moneky Show!
Today's episode follow the band as we travel across the UK, on to the "perty boat" and onwards to mainland Europe for 3 shows. The weather has been good and everyone is feeling refreshed and ready to go. We run into one small problem with the ferry however. The bing bong that usually wakes us up in the morning...Didn't go bing bong. So by the time we made it to the car deck they had already moved everything off from our level and weren't too pleased with us...
Todays diary is taken across a 17 hour period and will hopefully give some of you an insight into a day in the life of a band! With no crew to help, we set out to play 2x shows, firstly Live at the Bayview in East Fife Football Club and secondly headline a charity event at the Hard Rock Cafe in Glasgow. The charity is Glasgow Childrens Hospital (http://www.glasgowchildrenshospitalcharity.org) and is something that has effected our lives in some way and it was a pleasure to be involved! Next week we head over to Europe on the Party boat again to play Luxembourg, France and Belgium. Stay tuned and Subscribe!

The end of the episode sees Jay experiencing what can only be called a dream come true as he performs on stage with The Beach Boys.

This tour diary episode is a little different to usual. Mainly because it is a much more professional production as it has been made by Georgia Harris of Digi Eye Media! In this Episode you get a behind the scenes look at the making of Contagious. We would like to take this time to firstly thank the team at Film Scotland who brought this video to life. Thanks to our cast of actors who were professional and applied through out the shoot. Thanks to our make up team led by Angela Moffat who made us look terrifyingly insane (albeit it was probably one of the easier jobs she has had). Thanks to Drew John Barnes as he brought the project together and has been a vital part of Little Eye team for so many years. And once again thank you to Digi Eye Media for making this WONDERFUL video for us!

Arriving on Mainland Europe, we drive from Amsterdam down to Hamburg, Germany for a show. The video picks us up in Cologne, Germany for some sight seeing and some rocking, then on to Luxembourg, finishing off with a show in Metz.
It's been a few months since our last tour Diary, we have released a brand new single "Something Out of Nothing" and "Contagious" is soon to follow!
Sailing from Newcastle to Amsterdam, tise Episode takes place entirely on the ferry and features at an attempt at 5 questions to each member of the band! For any sensitive viewers, there is the consumption of fermented grains & fruit and also some bad langueage. Enjoy the hilarity!
Episode 6 took a little longer to put together than expected, but we are back! It's been a few months since the last diary, the album is out, and the E.P is out. And we are currently working on another couple of singles for 2016. (This was in the past).
This Episode see's performing around Glasgow, Firstly at O2 ABC and Secondly at The Glasgow Warriors Stadium! (Spoiler) This was the year they went on to win the title for the first time and we are fully taking credit for making that happen! hahaha. It was great to be front row for some of it and we watched the final in Orkney whilst on tour there.
