Two Bands - Max and Min Afternoon. John T covers the waterfront.

A seven piece line up at the at the Trojan Rooms brought the V.C.'s run there to an end. Hopefully back in Sept. The Humph style line-up with the extra reed man (FRANK BROOKER) went down well.
Caught the second half of Maureen's gig at the Porthole. A nice drummer I had not heard before. Roy on piano did the bass pedal thing but no tpt. 4 + Maureen - very laid back as against the V.C.'s hard driving band.

Do you mean the V.C. were driving hard or hard to drive?
Reminds me of a remark by the Savoy Sultans' drummer Panama Francis; "The drummer drives - the rest just ride."

Hi Lance

I was at Maureen's gig at the Porthole a couple of weeks ago. The drum chair was occupied by Paul Bacon - I think this could be the sticks man John T heard on his visit. As John says...a nice drummer.

Is the Roger Myerscough gig at Avalon on May 29 still on?
