Greeting for Jeff Hawes

Wishing my talented musician friend Jeff Hawes all the best for the future in his new home in Spain. A really nice guy who deserves to do well. Thanks Jeff for your Guitar lessons. Must keep practicing now. All the best to you and yours and hope you get some gigs over there.

Thank you Country Music Fans

Had a lovely night at Arkwrights Club in Norwich on 29th Jan.  First Country music event we have organised at this venue with myself and Bobby Graham.  Thanks to all who attended and will keep you posted as to the next one. A pleasure to work with Bobby ( pictured here with his horse Coco)  and we hope to make this a regular event.

Ponderosa Country Music Club

This club has its venue at Claydon and Barham Community centre, near Ipswich and I provided the entertainment there on Friday 6th January.  Like many other clubs of this type, attendances are a little patchy, but had a good night with around 50 Country fans.  Please give this club a look especially if you live in the Ipswich area (so easy to get to 5 mins from the A14.  The entrance fee here is £6 and with more local support offers so much for those who love their Country Music. The regulars at the Ponderosa were on the dance floor from first to last song. Don't know where they get their energy from. Thanks for the Gig Sylvia. Best wishes also to Derrick and wife Shirley.

New Years Eve

Had a really nice night with around 150 people at Anglian Windows Social Club in Norwich.  A lovely buffet was included and just before midnight, we played CD sixties classics before Old Lang Syne and Party music. Finished off with You'll never walk alone about 1pm when most had left for home. Thanks to Barnie and Jennie and their team of helpers for a well organised and highly successful event.
