Saturday Night Gigs

Rob Edgar and I caught the 31 bus from Chalk Farm to Kilburn Park. April showers had begun to fall. We chatted about music and literature. After dropping off our gear at the venue, we went out for dinner at Woody's Grill. It was a hearty meal and cost less than a tenner per head.

Chris Monger met us after dinner inside the venue. He had on him a lap steel and a couple of pedals. The night before, he and I had given the set a run through in my studio. Tonight would be the first time that Chris, Rob and I had ever played together. It was going to be fun!

The gig was attended by our friends and four other bands. As Chris and Rob sat down on stage, I stepped up to play a couple of my own guitar pieces. We then launched into a set of new songs and two covers. We worked well as a trio. Our set could have perhaps been longer.
