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

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 donít 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

Don't mess with that stuff or you might get hooked!


Good luck. You can still produce other art during breaks.

Sorry to hear about the passing of the guitarist. However hoping you take advantage of the pleasant offer to join the band and rekindle your musical interests...

All the best ~~ Ken

Thank you Ken....absolutely loving it...a lot of work to get my fingers doing what my brain says but am definitely getting there and loving it...

First gig is at end of the month where we will be doing a sell out concert with the proceeds going to the family of the guitarist who passed away....

Very best wishes Ray
