Hoi Rapiers,

We enjoyd your shows Tribute to Cliff and the Shadows in Holland. We were in Stadskanaal and in Leeuwarden. You played well!!
But what a DISAPPOINTMENT was your DVD we bought in the theater for 15,00 euroos!! It is an old show, BAD QUALITY, it seems home made. You are so good and then sell trash like that. Its a pitty , i cold do something better with my money. Regrettably thats not a good memory we have.

Best regards, Janneke Grave

P.s.My picture with Jimmy Jermain is beautiful

Janneke, glad you liked the show. Sorry you were disappointed with the lads' DVD. Please understand I don't speak for the band, but I'll pass on your concern. Might I remind that the band put out that DVD (on their own) as a souvenir for fans and also to keep bootleggers from profiteering off the band.

Hi Dave Garbutt here brother of Linda who is Jimmy Jemains partner, could you tell me the date of the venue at The Irish Centre in Leeds, in December when the Rapiers are appearing there, live close by, wish to go see them, thanks David.

Hi Dave, the date is December 4th. Best wishes
