    We played a charity gig in aid of a local cancer hospital on Friday 8th June 2018. We were one of three bands supporting a Welsh comedian called Rhod Gilbert.

    It was a great night with a lot of money raised for the hospital

    Here's a video from the night. It's the old blues standard, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, first recorded by Sonny Boy Williamson but our version is closer to what the Yardbirds did.

    Drummer started a bit faster than he normally does, hence the slight slowing down.
