Well what a truly wonderful way to sign
off!!.........Our last gig saw us go out in style with some superb music from
Jeremiah Marques & The Blue Aces
ably supported by Paul Malsom.
Neither act played straight blues all night long....but who cares? It was
just a great fun night when the artist's enthusiasm infected everyone who was
I don't want to sound like a stuck record but I really
do appreciate the support you've given over the years, thanks a million for that
& thanks also for the many cards, gifts (that's solved my Christmas present
dilemma!)...er...only kidding....& your kind wishes (I don't think I can
reach there Alan).
I'd like to think we can keep in touch, my new email
address isn't active yet but will be in a couple of weeks john_at_jetlinexec_dot_co_dot_uk & my new
website should be up & running about the same time www.jetlinexec.co.uk I'll keep The

If I hear of any good music I'll let you know.

a promoter get in touch & we can talk. Brian Henslow the owner of The
Roffen has promised his continued support & I'm sure Ciaran at MuMu would
welcome the club back but that would be for smaller gigs than we used to
I am asking a small sum for the club but that includes
the full PA, the website, the mailing list, the logo & title & the stage
backdrop etc. I'm not trying to make a profit, in fact it won't go
anywhere near the cost but it does have a value.
There you have it.....I'm now working on my new company
launch which takes place in October at Farnborough International Airport and our
first Merc bus arrives in two weeks....ooooer!.....so I'm
You all stay well, keep out of trouble & keep on
enjoying live music....I might catch you at a Geoff/Toby/Slim gig next
year if I can find the time....but I stress
