The birthday bash went reasonably soberly and I would like to thank all the sitters-in, Brian, Eddy, George, Richard, Bonny, Carmen and Miss Honeybee. You all helped to make the evening a success and give me a warm celebration of yet another passing year. I want also to thank the band, who as usual sailed through the evening with finesse.. I bet they’ve never had that description of themselves before, but there has to be a first time. Thanks again to everyone. The staff at the Union Tavern were their usual friendly selves and I appreciate all the extra effort they had to make to organise the room.
I shall be at the Henry Gray benefit gig at the Bull’s Head Barnes on November 7th. Henry lost everything in the recent Mississippi Floods so there is a great opportunity to help him out. I had the privilege of working with him when he was over here so it’s good to be able to give something back. There will be plenty of other musicians doing their bit so it looks as though the evening will be a great success. The Bull’s Head has a website with all the details and prices so I urge anyone who enjoys the blues to support this worthwhile cause. See you there.
