Merry Christmas to all !

Back from a fab trip to Somerset. Played at a Thanksgiving dinner in a wonderful old School house and then at The Riverside Inn in Cheddar. Thanks to our wonderful American friends Rebecca and Scooter for their hospitality and continued support and enthusiasm for Mardi Grass.

The UK tour continues ;-) We're in Somerset next Satuday (25th)at The Riverside Inn (BS27 3PX). We got this gig after the wonderful Rebecca saw us play at The Bounty in Basingstoke (I know, we really do get around !) and set up the gig in the local pub in her home town. We've organised good weather so get down there, catch a tan and come see us play :-))
