Lord Napier Gig

Thanks to those of you who supported us at the Lord Napier in Thornton Heath last night.  This renowned jazz pub has a stage at one end and we just managed to fit on it; Brian's amplifier was on a bit which appeared to be held up by prayer and sprang around a bit but no one was killed!

The pub is very long and the chimney breast which divides the stage area from the bar clearly used to be the dividing line between two separate bars.  The mirror on this chimney breast was a but offputting for Pete and Brian who were playing to their own reflections (an act which is illegal in certain middle-eastern countries!).

We tried out the three new songs: Just the Way You Are, Cindy Incidentally and No More Heroes, and they all went well - we're looking forward to bringing them to the Five Bells.  The audience whilst largely in the other bar (near the beer!) were enthusiastic and managed to emulate the usual rapturous reaction we EXPECT these days!

We will be back in the Lord Napier at Christmas we hope, so keep checking back for dates.
