Have to give this trio a plug, saw them last night here in Guernsey and they rocked!!

We don't get that many drums, hammond and tenor bands over here and it was a real treat to listen to Phil on tenor, what a great player; not to say that Seamus and Alan weren't up there too.

Had a chat with Phil (Jools Holland Big Band member) and he told me he played an Otto Link 8* and a number 3 reed, can't remember what brand as one or two beers had sailed down the river by then!

If you get a chance to see the guys play don't hesitate, a very enjoyable night will be had by all!

Yes, quite right; guess he plays these gigs to keep his chops in shape while JH is on his hols, and for the sheer musical pleasure of playing to an appreciative audience.

In any event the DR are certainly worth a listen, great drums and keys playing too of course.

Cheers,

Thanks for that - I'd love to see them if they played near here.

Good to hear what Seamus Beaghen is doing these days, I've got a good boogie & blues instruction DVD by him and Louis Vause and they can both play really well.

PS Did Phil Veacock used to have a shaved head, or am I thinking of another of Jools Holland's tenor soloists ?
