We seem to play The White Horse only about once a year. But there's always been the same gang of lads looking forward to it, and today's no exception.
There's lots of banter at the start, and at half time.
"How's the sound?", I ask. "Great", is the reply, "but it'd be better if you play more Toy Dolls."
No problem! After all we're almost a Toy Dolls tribute ha ha!
A lovely lady called Sharon dances all night and really helps things go with a swing as lots of people are listening from round the corner in the beer garden, where they can enjoy the warm evening and have a smoke.
In the end we rock it through and give em what they want... Nellie the Elephant ends a very "Dolls" set :o))
18 gigs in, and finally my throat is feeling just a bit hoarse. There's deffo a bit of a "snag" on the vocal chords. I think its time I had a weekend off from singing/shouting.
Just one more to go... phew!
