DIARY 2016

After 6 months on Facebook (there’s a link at the top of the Home Page and you don’t have to be on Facebook to access it) we decided to do a review of the last 6 months in relation to gigs etc. with a few photographs.

We still have the list of upcoming shows (for the coming year etc) …listed on this website…see top of Home Page. I shall also begin writing my Blog. again when time and my wreck of a neck allow me to use the laptop.

Meanwhile anyone wanting more information or more photos of the gigs listed below then follow the Facebook link. So….Happy 2016……the story so far….
