A few more photos here (if you're not on Facebook you should still be able to see these, if not let me know and I'll put them somewhere else).

Thank you to everyone involved in Saturday - and especially Paul and Pip for looking after us so well and making sure we had everything we needed. It was a real pleasure playing for you and I wish you both every happiness for the future!

Two superb sets from Partyfearsthree and Monument on Saturday night.

Andy, Mike and Don had the dancefloor pumping to up-to-date arrangements of '80s classics like Wishing, Talk Talk, Save a Prayer, Planet Earth, Just Can't Get Enough. Superb.

Mike, Davy, Don and Tommy then took to the stage and treated us to a whistle-stop tour of Ultravox's finest, from Hiroshima Mon Amour through One Small Day, Reap the Wild Wind and Hymn, via Private Lives, Vienna, All Stood Still and We Stand Alone, including the crowd-pleasing extended version of The Voice, culminating in an awesome polyrythmic drum workout. By special request, and highly appropriate to the occasion, they ended on Midge Ure's romantic That Certain Smile.

Well done to all concerned - Mrs. C and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening, so Thanks and Congrats to Paul and Pip!

You're not trying to access it from somewhere that blocks things like Facebook are you? It seems to be OK at this end, even if I log out of Facebook first. What exactly happens when you click the link?

I can only echo what has been said about Saturday night. The sets from both 'Monument' and 'Partyfearsthree' were fantastic and rounded off a long day precisely the way we intended it to.

smile

Despite them having made the long journey (and having to do the same back the next day), David, Mike, Don, Tommmy and Steve kept our guests thoroughly entertained and I can not thank them enough for their efforts. The sound and track selection was just fantastic (especially the last number of the evening) and I would recommend anyone here to help them put on a similar show if they wanted to like a shot, no question.

Thanks to everyone - especially the band(s) - who made the effort to come to the Jericho, and sorry if we did not get round to saying 'hello'. It had been rather a long long day. But another time, sooner rather than later, I hope...

Regards,


Paul

Hi Helen,

Unfortunately, Ash wasn't able to attend the gig, so no photos from him this time around I'm afraid.

Regards,


Paul
