This was taken by one of our fans at our last gig which was at the Mill Arts centre in Banbury last Friday night. This is the tenor part, unfortunately they didn't get the famous bari swap!

I have no idea how that goes on the original as I'm no Floyd fan but you sounded pretty good to me. :thumb:

Very nice. Not my kind of music either, but keep playing it like this and I might change my mind.

I'm a Floyd fan, have been since the 70s.... Really impressed! Wish the sound guy had you a little louder! Hits all the right bits for me! Is that your old Amati tenor???

But I have to complain about the way you treat your punters - no bari swaps, short changed!!!!! Cheap.

Got any more gigs planned? Or did last mean that?

;} Calm down Kev, you'll do yourself a mischief! Here's the whole number as filmed by Mrs Taz! Bari swap 'n all!:w00t:


If you can't be bothered to watch the whole thing, the sax comes in at about 9 minutes (although you'll be missing some great musicians IMHO)

Re: Just to keep Kev quiet!

Sorry Kev, I forgot to answer your original question as well! Doh!
Yes that's my old Amati. I had the opportunity to trade it in last year but after trying all the big names I failed to find anything that I felt was significantly better.
As for more gigs, we're constantly getting bookings although we tend to keep it to around 12 to 16 gigs a year. If anyone wants to find out more about the band or check out our gig dates here's a LINK to our website.

Bravo Taz, spectacular. I'm really impressed and somewhat envious ... of your skill, tone, phrasing, and all under the spotlight. Ah well, all good motivation for me .... more practice, more practice.

Good one, really enjoyed it.

Just one point - if you must get dressed on stage, please don't stand betwen the camera and the singer, quite spoilt my view!!! >:)

Champion Pete,
One other Floyd song comes to mind "Careful with that axe Eugene". If you're going to swing that bari round make sure you don't get in the way. It would be a shame to spoil those pearly whites.
Really enjoyed it mate.

Well, I'd pay to see that! On the other hand, I can't afford to, because it makes me want to buy a bari.
