  1. Great post! Went to the gig last night and brought back such great memories of past gigs, particularly the early days. They really loved playing You Love us, Motown Junkie and Slash N Burn. Truly memorable night, and thanks for putting this out there!

  2. Lovely pictures. And here's my review of the gig to read while you enjoy the visuals:

  3. Many thanks for publishing these fotos. I treated myself to the gig as early Xmas present & the guys were among the most professional & polite you could hope to meet. A real family atmosphere. Shame group has been put on hold. Try to ignore more sweeping & incorrect comments by journalists & lifts my mood listening to their records. Thanks again ...
