Hi there, a bit confused about the lucky dip. Can someone explain?

Cheers

Dont panic!

Our names go in a hat.  They are drawn out in 2s or 3s.  We have to perform a couple of songs in the chosen groups the following night.  Just a bit of fun, the results can range from wonderful to slightly deranged.

We had lunch there with Colm and Rosie when they came over in 2012. Very nice it was too.

Rosie and I saw this on the BBC Breakfast News this morning but we didn't know the location. We thought it looked a lot like the restaurant we visited with Blueshome but weren't sure! We had a great time. It is a lovely place with great food and views. These storms are really something!

Agree about the perm and nice to see you've kept your figure - I look forward to playing with you (metaphorically) again.

Thanks for that Alan, it doesn't seem like 20 years ago....
The perm belongs to my wife  Janet, next to her is my "big brother" Neil Slaven , then Alan "Bunker Hill" Balfour and, a rather more slimline me. Bob Pearce (who took the pic) is still, in my book at least, one of the best blues singers in the country.
That was a great weekend!

Great to have you guys there! The new faces really helped things go with a swing.

Thanks to Richard for settings things up again. A great time this year.
