Excellent! Sadly I can't be there (some bastard put an ocean in the way),but I wish you full luck. Do let me know if you have any thing recorded and for sale though, would love to show my support that way.

Not been to the Vic in years. Used to make sporadic trips there on the bike and camp on the grass strips between bays in the car park. Not sure that it would be a good idea in December.

put the date in my diary.

If anyone from my neck of the woods wants to go, I don't mind driving and we can share the diesel.

Cheers for that Colin, be good to meet you...and any of the others for that matter, and for any new players who come, a lesson in how NOT to play a saxamyphone!Ha ha...

Colin do you know John who owns the Vic? I've known him for years but not as a musician, think he was a bit worried about letting me play for a start until he found out who it was i am with..

Perhaps we need a signal or code so we can all identify each other as Cafe Saxers on the night?!!

Looks like I'm coming!

Trust me, as a 6ft 3" woman with a 6ft 7" hubby, you won't miss us! Just wait for the room to feel very crowded!

Will confirm when i know if i am definitely going.

Now you HAVE to go as the point of reference in the room (left yourself wide open for that one!) otherwise everyone else will be left with the alternative challenge of looking for the shortest couple in the room, which will be me at 5'7 and my hubby of 5'5 !! We are much more difficult to spot in a crowd LOL

Seems we are going to be a curious looking quartet ... !

And it that outfit, hmmmmmmm think you will the one everyone will be avoiding so there will be a wide gap of accessibility all around you.

Brave man dressing like that in a biker bar lol.

Think I will recognise you though Fraser! Someone told me you would be the chap holding a Tenor Sax on stage pretending you are performing with The Splitters :D
