Thanks Melbourne!

Thanks Melbourne for a wonderful run of concerts. A broken finger stopped me playing bass on these shows so we brought in Steve Temple on bass and Peter Baylor on guitar to fill out The Beggars sound, they did a fine job. Singing with out my bass in my hand was a new experience for me and while I really enjoyed it I cant wait to get back on the bass again. Thanks again to everyone who helped out on the tour especially the audience who were so fine.

North Queensland Concerts

This week we played concerts in Townsville and Mackay with Quentin Eyers filling in for Stuart Day on guitar, mandolin and vocals. Well I was a little apprehensive would Quentin be able to learn all the harmonies, words and arrangements, would he be overwhelmed when he saw the size of the stage and the spotlight hit him? I didn’t need to worry Quentin did a fantastic job the crowds loved him and the only tricky thing was getting use to touring with someone who has almost the same first name as me. Thanks to the folks in Townsville and Mackay for a great little  tour of North Queensland.
