Groove-a-matics @ Tyne Bar - The Show Didn't Go On!

Seems I'm fated not to catch the Groove-A-Matics. I missed them when they won the north east heat of the New Brunswick Battle of the Blues Competition as I wasn't well. Today I made the trek across the Tyne Bridge and the circuitous route to the Tyne Bar only to find it was their turn to be sick and a dep rockabilly band took their place.
I hung around for a while but it wasn't really my scene so I headed back into town. By now it was raining and I took shelter in a city bar. A pint later the toon army arrived so I left to join the queue for the Metro home.
I've had better days with the toothache.
Lance.

I'm well Rob but, unfortunately, I'll be at the Whitley Bay Jazz Party on that day. Give my regards to Barry Race and will catch you next time round.
