A Message From Adrian Tilbrook

I'd like to take advantage of the Bebop Spoken Here blog to say a big thank you to all the people that came out on Sunday to support the musicians and also helped to launch 'Splinter'.
It was an absolutely brilliant way to start the new venture and I hope that everyone (musicians as well) will continue to support us. I have to say in hindsight (a wonderful thing!) that it was probably a bit too much for one sitting but I wanted to showcase as many bands as possible. When we do it again (and I've already been asked 'When') I'll probably limit it to 5 or six bands. All in all we had 10 bands in 10 hours (without EXM), ate 130 packets of crisps and burned 40 candles. The only criticism I can think of is that it would have been better if we had eaten the candles and burned the crisps! One again my sincere thanks to everyone for the goodwill and support - it was very much appreciated. Cheers Adrian PS: some photos of the day are on the Jazzaction website.
