Just a little story for friends here.....
8

Hi

Just wanted to share with friends, some recent events which have reduced my involvement and activity with the forum.

Some time ago I was asked to take some photographs of a 10 piece local band, which specialised in Northern Soul and Soul music etc. Having played in a fairly successful band myself, but not for the past 20+ years, I was delighted to be able to help. I took a set of photos during their rehearsals which I also made into a little promotional video for them, featuring them playing etc. My interest in music was re-kindled hearing the band rehearse.

The band played on 2nd February 2019 and unexpectedly and very sadly, the guitarist, having enjoyed a great gig, went home and suffered a fatal heart attack.

My photos are therefore one of the last recent photographic records of the band.

However, to my amazement and delight, I was approached to see if I would, after all these years, come out of musical retirement and join the band, starting with a gig to commemorate the life of the guitarist: one of the nicest people you could wish to meet.

I am therefore frantically catching up with playing guitar again and rehearsals start on Monday. My fingers don’t move like they used to but getting there.

So I just wanted to share with friends my little slideshow which I hope you like and which is attached below.

And please....wish me luck with my new venture.

Very best wishes

Ray
