WOW! - that's the only way to describe the last month (November 2022). Its started with my Uncle asking me if I'd heard of a guy called 'John Mayer' and if we could learn a song of his for him which we have done. Then it was into the Australian Blues Festival at Goulburn where we were able to play a full set at the Goulburn club despite Bryn feeling ill and vomiting during the day - another important teaching moment about the show must go on! We managed to catch up with some old friends, thanks to Matt Ross for reminding me that it was nearly thirty years ago we went to Uni together in Lismore - WOW! The kids were particularly impressed with the High School funk band and Minnie Marks was amazing. It was a great event and we hope to be part of it again next year. The following week we were all excited to see Matt Schofield and he didn't disappoint! The Chris Harland Band did a great support set which got everyone revved up and then when Matt came on it was incredible - the kids particularly enjoyed "livewire' as having played the song they had an understanding of just how good Matt and his band are. We topped off the night by buying some merch and having a chat with Matt where Bryn told him that he will remember that gig for the rest of his life! (me too!) - WOW! But there was no time for resting as we were back at the awesome Harmonie German Club the following night for the annual 'Fifty Fingers Blues Piano' night where Canberra's best blues pianists duel it out in a fun session that feels casual however the talent on display is amazing. The highlight for Bryn was being asked to accompany his teacher John Black on a blues in G - WOW! Technically this next one was in December but was so awesome I can't wait to write about it. On Friday 2nd December we all went to see Lachie Doley Group play at the HGC and they blew our minds. Charlie said it was 'even better than Matt Schofield'! The band was on fire, and Lachie's playing was out of this world. This was the kids first time seeing a real Hammond organ and leslie speaker - they were impressed. Charlie was floored by Jackie Barnes' drum solo and grooves. We were all amazed with the dynamics, feel and harmonies! November 2022 is a month we will all remember. Thankfully December only has a couple of Christmas party/Jam sessions to go to but we also have to get ready for some great gigs in January.
