we turned up at Epsom Playhouse last Thursday night to accompany Blake
in their sell out concert, we had very little idea as to what was
expected of us, except that we would provide backing melodies for five
of their performance tunes. At around 90 minutes before the concert we
at last met the boys themselves and we were not disappointed! They were
very friendly, incredibly complimentary about how we sounded and made
us feel an important part of the evening. (click "Read more.." to listen to an interview)
