Playlist for May Concert

Hi all,

Please see below, our playlist for the upcoming concert in May.

As you can see, we have around 40-45 mins of playing time, which with chatter / intros comes to nearly an hour – i.e. a standard-length concert.

With Simon Smith to add to our ranks, we have a little insurance – but we need to make the next three rehearsals really count if we’re to make a good showing.

My commitment is that we will hold a concert come what may. ¬†If the band isn’t sufficiently prepared, we’ll drop pieces as necessary, but I hope we won’t have to.

So – here’s looking forward to a concert of about an hour …. or less – that’s up to you ūüôā

See you on the 9th.  Cheers Jem

MSE : No Rehearsal Tonight (11th April)

Hi all,

I’m beginning to dread checking my mobile on Mondays !

Unfortunately, Ray can’t make it tonight. ¬†I checked with Jas, and nether can he. ¬†With Ben out this week on hols, it would leave us with just four players and we don’t have enough material to make sensible use of a practice session, so with regret I’m calling off tonight’s slot.

Some light at the end of the tunnel is that Jas will be back with us next week so we should have a full complement then.

Also, I’ve been burning the midnight oil on a couple of pieces to help us put a concert together quite quickly – and I’ll get them out on the website in the next couple of days so you can run them through before next Monday’s session.

@ Matt, David, Susie – can you please let me know that you’ve got this message.

on or 329160.  Cheers Jem
