Swinging Sounds Big Band ( with yours truly on 2nd Tenor ! ) have a gig on Saturday 19th February.

It is at St . Teresa's Club, 98a Upper Aughton Road, Southport at 8.30pm. Tickets £5 or pay on the door.

We'd be pleased to see any of you who are local and may be able to come.

Or record a song or two and post to YouTube. I like to listen to my contemporaries and often learn a thing or two that I can use with my groups.

Well...we did our gig, and it went just fine.

I have only recently joined the band and have had four rehearsals with them. They won't mind me saying that the rehearsals can be a bit laisez fare, and the overall effect is a bit loose and ropey. However, on the gig everyone was on their mettle and I thought we sounded great. A couple of people I took along thought so too, and I don't think they were just being nice.

We have another one in March and hopefully I can get some recording equipment set up and share it on the forum.

Thanks to all those who sent messages of encouragement.
