Hello Everyone.

Thank you for supporting last week's Gordon Smith gig and I would also like to personally thank John, Terry and Sandra (with Roy joining the team next month) for running the show in my absence and keeping the club alive.

Here's what John Cordingley said:

"A great evening was has by all on the 26th when  Gordon Smith and his band did us proud and gave us an entertaining selection of his blues, no fuss, nice slide and good harp playing and a bass player that sings. Many thanks from Sandra, Terry and myself to the membership for not only accepting us but for all the help and encouragement they gave on the evening, I must try and remember the names. Also thanks for supporting the raffle it is much appreciated. Look forward to seeing you all again at the next club night. John Cordingley."

......and now on to the next one with the one and only Matt Schofield, which is going to be very busy indeed, so please book early to avoid disappointment!

Matt, who is just about the number one guitarist/vocalist rising star on the scene, will be performing numbers from his just released CD which was reviewed in Mojo magazine.  The album received a four star rating, saying "With Heads, Tails & Aces Schofield steps up to another level altogether." Perhaps, most significantly, the review is not buried in the blues column but is right up front with the biggest releases of the month.

So there again in spirit and really wishing I could see this one, I look forward to your attendance on Tuesday 30th June 2009 at the Roffen Suite, New Road, Rochester for Matt Schofield and his band.

Just a reminder that the July Lisa Mills gig is the 21st, not the 28th, July.

Thank you.
