Back in the day

The Friday night music at the Squirrel is being curtailed during the summer so the regular first Friday gigs are cancelled for now. As one of my PA speakers got damaged it is no real hassle for me personally.

On a lighter note The Erdington Club Mothers, which ran successfully for a while in the late seventies and early sixties and had a great music scene going with top bands playing there, had a reunion for it’s old fans and musicians who played there in those days. I recorded my first album there for Pye Records and was invited to the re-union.

I travelled down there on Saturday by train and really enjoyed the way the organisers had displayed all those old posters advertising various bands promoted there. In addition there were many stalls with records for sale. There were also a succession of musical performances from bands from those days. The music was great and just proved that that era produced some great musicians and they are still going strong. Music does keep you young.

Squirrel cancellation

This month’s gig at the Squirrel has been cancelled. The pub has been closed by the local council until further notice. The gig at the Elgin in April, coincides with a couple of friends’ birthdays, so they’ve decided to jointly celebrate there that night. It promises to be a fun night.
