A while back I joined a great group of blues people at the Henry Gray benefit night at The Bull’s Head Barnes. It went off with a real swing and raised over £400 for Henry. All the musicians taking part, Errol Linton, Tim Penn, Dom Pipkin, Tim Richards, Diz Watson, Petar Zikovic, Adam Blake, Richard Rhoden, Andy Lafone, Franca Shaw, Pete Miles, Tony Uter and Jon T-bone Taylor made the night go exceedingly well.
T-bone handled the introductions for each performer and all the guys enjoyed it, so much so that they want to do it again, but the lack of a suitable venue with a decent piano is making that more and more unlikely which is a shame. However, all credit to the performers and the back-up helpers and to promoter Pete Feenstra for putting it on.
Given how infrequently I get to write this blog, or to answer anything at all, perhaps this is the time to wish everyone a happy |Christmas and a successful New Year. That does not mean lots of hangovers…
Just been to a Big Wheel Blues night at the Institute Laxey. Great night and reminds me of many Sundays at the Caernarvon Castle – good times. Must see if I can find a recording of Mojo for old times sake!
