    I have some experience of performing butt-nekkid in front of a large gathering but that's another story. Nobody wants that to happen again, of that I'm certain. Even the Mrs. turns off the light nowadays.

    Feck that, I would hope that this event attracts a better class of heckler that pops down to the bakery first. If I manage to attend, I would like pasties thrown at me please

    Calling any drummers out there

    ... Enjoyed a great little pub jam the other night, just the sort of all-inclusive, interactive endeavour that I would like to achieve for the Hoggy on friday night, also as was demonstrated at Syco's frost-fest back in January

    ... Wot was specially fun was the drummer who joined the jam, not with a full kit, he just bought a high-hat and snare along (almost loadable on a lardy GS) and did a sterling job of percussioning

    ... Any drummers out there fancy making a similar contribution at Hograost ?

    ... Gettin' your guitars tuned, adding the missing strings, practicing yer moves in front of the bathroom mirror

    ... Great I thought so

    ... Friday Night is talent night, bring yer banjo and a sense of humour.




    ... Feck Health & Safety, artistes will NOT be required to don Hi-Vis*

    ... *It makes them too much of a target!

    ... Friday night is talent night

    ... I hope we get the vocal talents of Woody and there are hidden talents such as Slimbo, Woody who should feel moved to enter into the spirit of things.

    ... Shep & Pint7X - Bring yer charts from last year and stands, it'll give us a basis for a jam (a la Shropshire). Philip, don't forget to bring Patrick!

    ... Flipfly - be there fella!


    ... Format: -
    - Elvis will be elvising in the Bar early evening
    - Players can set-up as and when in the tent
    - I am arranging loan of a few extra mic's and stands to supplement Bakes' PA. But still bring what you can, including extra instruments, amps, mics, DIs etc. I'll bring a 'loan' guitar for the distant travellers.

    - Reverse the order a bit from last year.
    - Any solo turns to open up after Elvis, prolly kick-off 9pm ish (Bakes - I hope your son will take the opportunity to entertain us again)
    - Anyone can sit in, it's all about spontaneous creativity and collaboration
    - Ending with song-circle / Jam as more players sit-in.
    - I hope this will encourage players to hold onto some of their crowd pleasers for the later drinkers, who will no doubt feel compelled to join in vocally, jamboree stylee

    ... A good time will be had by all, looking forward to it

    ... You are perhaps confusing the open-mic with the portaloos






    ... Brush up your licks and let's get jammin

    I am up for a spot of fire breathing combined with really poor comedy.
    If fire breathing is allowed........ I know many frown upon it as it can cause death instantly if done incorrectly.
