The Jazz Train

Hi Lance,
Good to catch up with you at the Jazz Festival, here is a clip of The Real Ale Train, a gig that I did with Brian Bennett, you told me that your audiences are rather subdued, but this was more like a Ned Kelly's on wheels, what a lot of fun, more of a sing-along than Jazz, but a good scenic route, fun gig and great real ale...WOW, and on top of that I did get paid for it....
