Rehearsals for Peel Pensioners – Mon 17 / 24 April

Hi all,

I’ve had some positive confirmations, and no objections, to my plan to catch up ground prior to the upcoming Peel Pensioners gig – which is on 26th March at 7:30pm.

So – on Monday, we’ll start at 6:45 prompt with I Got Rhythm to warm us up, then we’ll be joined at 7pm by Chris Thomas and his double-bass, at which time we’ll run Hit the Road Jack and Wade in the Water.

After these, we’ll work our way through the repertoire as below – the aim is to make sure over the two rehearsals, that we can provide a solid performance on each tune when we have the full band in attendance.

As noted before, we’ll run our sessions later than normal (to nominally 9:30pm) – certainly for the first session and we’ll see what’s needed on the second.

… and in the meanwhile, please put some time in over the weekends to make sure you’re as up-to-speed as you can be.

Thanks all, Jem
