Too little butter spread over too much toast (I did a show and I ROCKED!) 

Hello Music Lovers! 

Here’s a little news from behind the scenes at Team Trey. The House Elves all immolated themselves, the self-generating endless supply of Dothraki went to gymkhana, and the last Jedi was… just last. 

In other words, service has been interrupted a on the weekly blog and YouTube videos. 

As Bilbo so nicely put it, “Too little butter spread over too much toast”. And we’re also all outta toast. 

But here’s the good news: 

  • Trey did a FAB show at Kavarna Liberal this month. A new…

I did a show – and I SUCKED 

Hello music lovers! 

This week, I did a show at Cafe Club Misenska with Jeremy Drew. It was a full house – standing room only – and we all had a fab time. Great tunes, lovely people, and the beer and wine flowing like… beer and wine. 

But I was pretty pissed off with myself. I was playing the gorgeous songs from my upcoming LP INTIMATE LETTERS, many for the first time, and I kept making mistakes. “Forget that last mistake, and focus on the next song,” I told myself. 

Well, that works for Tiger Woods, but…

Video Releases this week – EVERY DAY, BABY! 

Hello Music Lovers! 

Things are heating up for 2019 – just as Trey planned it. (Or at least, tells us after things happen). 

We had a fab show at Cafe Pavlac last week. Lovely people in the audience and staff too. :D Adam Urban joined Trey on kit, and vids will soon be posted. Stay tuned to the YouTube channel to get regular updates. 

So this week, we have something special – a video every day of the week! Woo-hoo! All vids are from Trey's acoustic set last week.

Each video goes live at 11:45am CET on

A Week Of Mellow New Tunes 

Hello Music Lovers!

While the hares box in the fields, and the sap rises in many a young... Ent ("I am Groot!"), Trey offers a trio of mellow love songs this week.

  • YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME – quite probably the eeriest love song ever written in Bohemia. That thing where the singer talks about an old lover, but really they're talking about themselves. (And don't singers always do that? ;)))
  • LOOKING FOR ANOTHER LOVE – a sweet song about still being in love with someone, but having to haunt the bars…

4 (FOUR!) New Vids of Trey & Bands Live :D 

Hello Music Lovers! 

Working up towards Friday 15 March's show at Cafe Pavlac, Trey has been playing about town and rehearsing with ace drummer Adam Urban. 

If you missed the fun – don't miss the big show! Cafe Pavlac is a hip little eaterie with a whole extra side-order of music. Book now to avoid having to stand and risk getting chipotle sauce on your Friday-night best! ;p 

Here's some recent action – Trey at Prague Open Mic with Beego. Done without NO rehearsal! These guys are tight!

Trey & Adam…

Balcony Demos Return! – And Upcoming Show News :D 

Hello Music Lovers!

We had a warm snap last week, so we hustled Trey off to the somewhat famous balcony to do a few new videos. Then he got chilly and went inside – poor thing!

And, seeing as it was Valentine's week, he was reminded of these three tunes from last year.

MY FUNNY HANNAHTINE – A pun? A pastiche? Or just a beautiful love song, full of longing? Maybe it's all of these things.

A PIECE OF YOU – A sweet reminder of that feeling when you first go absolutely dopey about someone.

A PALINDROME –…

Guitar Solos – Macht Shau! #2 

As posted in Macht Shau! #1, we're true believers in giving youse guys a fab night out. At least, the musical element of it, anyway.

But then, eventually, comes the guitar solo. Trey admits, yes, he has a penchant for noodling, wigging out, or simply indulging in some hot licks. Sometimes, he even plays the guitar. Improvisation is a much lost art in the rock world (not the roque world, happily), and we're holding out for it.

Sadly, with tap-dancing, singing and keeping up the rhythm guitar, Trey doesn't get…Read more

Learn the Bleedin' Music – Macht Shau! #1 

In some kind of very hard stone (rock, perhaps?), 'tis written – Macht Shau! 

Now, this commandment was handed down from a dodgy nightclub owner in Hamburg, to our favourite mop-tops, The Beatles. Back when they was a bubbling stew of alchemical potential*. 

And here at Power's Towers, we are reaaaally traditional about the things that matter. Your evening's entertain is one of them. 

After all, you put your calendar in order, get your ass down to the venue through inclement weather conditions ±, pays…
