Another day, another dinner
May 5th 2013. A hard day's work at Bedford Hotel is rewarded with a pleasant meal.

The restaurant was fully booked for the jazz lunch, but staggered bookings combined with delays in diners being served left us running out of tunes and energy. Bravely, we carried on well past our scheduled end time of 2 pm. And finally, it was a tired band that sat down to lunch at around 3.30 pm.
Sadly there had been no time to organise photographs of us playing this time. So you'll have to put up with just one or two pictures of our sojourn in the 'green room'. Here's Mick asking Debs to check that his nostrils are clean.

It subsequently emerged that the folk booking us for a future gig for a diamond wedding had submitted, er, a list of requests. Here's Charlie rehearsing his outfit to satisfy the requirement.
|That's him on the left I think|
See you next time!
