16 December 2009


Hmm-and guess who's been roped in for compere duties for the twist competition-time to dust off the 60's shawl collat dinner suit and diamonte under-collar bow tie! :)

that's ahem *"collar", of course. Oops!

Are you making the tea, too? :-)

Aw, would SO love to be there. Be thinkin' of ya guys. Sounds like a blast.

Actually Neil, I've just picked up a fab, genuine 60s mohair, slim lapelled dinner jacket from a charity shop. Very James Bond! (Connery, obviously ;)

Wow! What a blast-Dusted off some Kaisers gems-including "Watcha Say" which we opened with, "Valley of the Kaisers" "Don't Ask Me" (which I believe Matt penned. Matt actually managed to get himself up to speed by getting his parts nailed while at home in Scotland then with just one rehearsal the night before, slotted in like that missing piece of jigsaw! Lovely to see Mauro (Buddy) and the guys from Pete Berry and the Shake set there! More news to follow! :)
