Hi Rob,
Ned Kelly's is still going strong, and on the 18th, December, 2012 will be 40 years old, what years were you in Hong Kong, maybe you were with the british military !!!!!!

Used to visit there once a year when the QE2 docked in. All the band members used to go there from the ship.

I remember the QE2 musicians, I was part time at Neds from 1994 -1997 and took over full time in 1998, there was a very good alto sax player who used to come over called Mark Hutchings,do you nremember him !!! the guys still come over from the ships, except now it is the Queen Mary & Queen Victoria, were you a musician on board yourself !!!
Many a good session with the QE2 boys...
