"Ton-Up Day", vintage British motorbikes and the book launch of author Chester Dowling's paen to the rocker lifestyle Just for Kicks brought out The Rapiers and a crowd of about 1,000 Sunday afternoon at historic Jacks Hill Cafe near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
"We played inside the cafe—didn't want to risk the rain—for an hour, which went down really well," says Nathan J. Hulse, noting the band appropriately burnished their hour-long set with a trio of tracks by "true blue British rocker Johnny Kidd", including I'll Never Get Over You, Lindy Lou and Please Don't Touch. Singers Billie Davis and Vince Eager also performed.
