Band News

I have finally got reasonable vision again after a couple of operations on my good eye, so I can see to write again. In fact I can even see where I’m going, though I’m not sure what direction that is.

Anyway it also helps when I’m gigging, though I no longer have any excuse for picking up the wrong harp.

I have few gigs coming up with the first on Saturday 28th October at the Kilburn Arms. Then I ill be guesting at the Leytonstone Blues Jam on Monday 30th October.

After that we return to our regular haunt Angie’s Free House on the following Saturday 4th November then maybe a few fireworks on Sunday 5th November at The Oval Tavern, East Croydon.

Time Passing…

Once again I have got around to remembering I have a website. It has been some time, but I have been doing the odd gig or two. Angie’s Free House in Maida Hill, Petts Wood with Mel Wrights Jazz. group, for which I turned up late due to traffic and the Leytonstone Jam night among others.

It was good to see Wolfie and Jackie Witcher at Mel’s gig. The bad news is that Wolfie has had another fall ending in hospital again. He’s out now but not too mobile. Another one who doesn’t get around much any more is Al Vincent.

However, though Al has more or less given up playing, I have been lucky enough to have him play at a couple of those gigs and he will be with me at the Oval Tavern, Croydon in October.You can’t keep a good man down!

My next gig is the day before my birthday so will be promoted as my 85th Birthday bash and I will probably spend the next day, my actual birthday, recovering. It will be at Angle’s of course.
