Radar Sounds International

Werbeniuk are very happy to announce that we are teaming up with Radar Sounds International to spread the word far and wide. As RSI supremo Tim says: “Werbeniuk deserve a lot more recognition and exposure … delighting audiences with a sound that is … unique, brilliant, clever and best of all very tuneful.”

Check out the RSI Facebook page, where you can find out more, and check out the other bands on the roster.

An Apology

We are so very sorry to have to do this, but owing to ill-health, Werbeniuk are unable to perform at Volkspower’s Tent of Quirk this coming Friday. It’s not a decision taken lightly, and if we were physically able, we would have been there.

We’ll take a break over the summer, hopefully have some recordings to share with you and – all being well – return and do some gigs later in the Autumn and Winter.

Thank you for your understanding.

Michael, Gary, Andrew, Tim & Darren.

NEWS – Feb 2018

Been ages since we put any news on here, so here’s something …

Here’s a little snap of Gary, Tim and Darren limbering up during a recording session today. We’re beginning to get some of the newer tunes down, playing and singing live as much as possible, trying to capture some more character and energy than we’ve managed to on the recordings so far. We did a few takes of two songs today, and if those turn out OK, we’ll work on more in the same way. More news soon!Gary, Tim and Darren recording

Don’t forget our next gig is on March 16 at the Toft House, Middlesbrough Little Theatre Club, with Kev Howard & Tim Coyte, and Sam Slatcher. Hopefully more to come, too!

Cheers,

A

NEWS – March 2017

A little update … We’ve been busy practicing old and new songs ready for a couple of upcoming gigs, and getting our new recruit Darren Reay up to speed. Darren is taking the place of our beloved Jimmy Howes, who has decided to take a break from the Werbeniuk shenanigans. As with anyone who’s ever trodden the boards with us, the door’s always open … To misquote the League of Gentlemen: WERBENIUK – YOU’LL NEVER LEAVE!

Facebook people will have seen this already, but here’s all five of us the other night after a practice at our Billingham HQ:

Back Row L-R Gary, Michael, Tim. Front Row L-R Darren, Andy.

So… watch out for us in the coming months. Details of gigs will appear on the gigs page, and so far we’ve got April 16 at Hole In The Wall, Darlington, and – as previously announced – May 28 at TSOne in Middlesbrough. We’ll get sharing event pages on Facebook soon, so watch out for those and get yourselves there! More to follow!

NEWS! – October 2016

new-werbeniuk

Just to reiterate what was published to the Facebook page, we’ve had a couple of practices now with our new member Tim Oxnard (looking youthful & handsome 2nd from left). Tim’s been in The High Plane Drifters (as featured on “Breaking Bad”), The Approved and The Magick Godmothers, among other bands. We’re currently rehearsing for a couple of gigs in November and December (more on that soon), but it’s going pretty well so far, so fingers crossed! A
