    There is nothing like a deadline to sharpen the mind, to achieve results if you’re really focused!

    I have the type of character that can put things off. Some would call it procrastination, I believe things happen at the time they do for a reason.

    At the beginning of the week, a work colleague (guitarist and drummer) asked me if I’d be interested in putting a band together for a Cancer Charity gig. I of course agreed.

    Another work colleague, with whom I play acoustic guitar agreed also.

    Adding to the ensemble, my wife and daughter, both singers, agreed to join.

    All we were missing was a Bass player. I made some enquiries with my sons Drum teacher.

    Last night I got a late night text from the drum teacher, saying that a friend who played Bass and was very interested.

    This evening I spoke with the Bass player and we’re on!

    I’d love a keyboard player as well and who knows I may tempt Les to visit Scotland!:)

    There will be further updates.

    But as you can imagine, I’m very excited, as this will be my first band in several (ahem, ahem) years.

    Awesome! I've done a couple of charity gigs, and you can't beat the feeling of contributing to a great cause.
    Congrats.

    Man that would be so cool, but you’d have to hire a Lear, because there’s a bunch of other guys here who I would be stoked to be there too.

    Depending on how this works out, it could continue after the gig as a working band which would be so goooood!
