Thank you all for waiting so long for our return.  We want to play for you as much as you want to hear the music!  We are just waiting a little longer for the return of one member, then we expect to be back in the autumn.  Until then, we have a special treat to keep you going!

On the 31st, we 3 Simones (Dave A, Dave S and Bradley) would like to play some of our well known songs in a brand new acoustic arrangement for you.  Come and hear the songs like you have never heard them before!  We are playing at Volume 6 of Iro Iro, so you can hear lots of other great bands too, held at the usual place in Doobies, Ueno on the 31st of July.
