"Oh dear", says Beagle, "I hadn't thought of that", and promptly vanished in a puff of logic.

"Oh, that was easy"' says JazzBass, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.

Heh heh... Being in several bands is no guarantee of work in Napier, probably 'cos those b******s from hell, Naked Gun, have got the gigs all stitched up. :mrgreen:

Well you would have been more than welcome to do the 50th we played at in Waipuk on sat night,try 10.30pm to 1.30am and lugging all the gear up and back down a stupid staircase !. Im getting to old for that sort of caper :( And aside from the enjoyment of playing my new mongrel bass it was pretty boring.

A one man band would have been perfect Marty :lol:

Good luck with the gigs mate. :)
