"Hi Ben, just wanted to say thanx for the gig last night, it was awesome, i had a fantastic time, just the medicine in these recessionary times! Long may you keep comin up with the goods, Ihave some great music in my collection as a result of your hard work! Thanx for that, look forward to seeing you at the pigs later this
year, best wishes dave"

We are getting ready to do our festival dates in Cottingham, and then we are homeward bound (and Andrew is off to surgery - lucky guy). There is a comment by me on the Sonicbids site if you haven't already seen it. Feel free to use or abuse it any way you like. If you have any doubt (and you shouldn't), I gave you 5 stars.

Please stay in touch, and we will do the same. Perhaps we can put
something together again. I would like that.

All the best, cheers, and rock on!
Jen - The Drews"

PS - I saw the article - Yikes!! Thanks for being a Grade A sponsor! Not to mention a Grade A human being!

Selected for CMEAS Presents: Spring UK Tour (England, Wales, Scotland) 2009
Make no mistake. This is a tour (10 days or whatever). That said... It was far beyond the usual expectations. I saw places I never would have otherwise seen, and met people I never would have otherwise met. I highly recommend it for anyone not rehearsing! More than once on this tour, I said out loud, "It doesn't get much better than this!" And it doesn't... And yes, the promoter responded to everything in a timely and professional manner. He is also a real person. - Jen, The Drews
I rated this gig FIVE STARS
