Busking with friends old and not so old...

At the weekend, Warren and I caught up with Jonny (One of the Buskers on Bikes from last year) and Warrens's uncle to play an impromtu set of songs at a family party.

I thought I'd post this as we played a couple of songs that we knew, but started the set with a group of unrehearsed songs from 1972 as it was a ruby wedding anniversary. It just goes to show that with a little bit of organisation it's possible for a group to play together without too much practice.

We have the next social booked at the Royal George (which is set back from Charing cross road) and we'll be tackling the music part of the ride. If you've bought a ticket and we've not got your email address, could you please let us know at as soon as possible as we'll be emailing out links to the songs shortly. If you'd also like to let us know what instrument you'll be bringing (or if you'll be joining the vocal and handclap chorus)...

So far we have  guitars, ukuleles, a mandolin a percussionist and a pair of melodicas. Very much looking forward to this part of it all. Even on the long ride last year with the sense of personal achievement that brought... It was the music that really made me smile.

Also you all seem like such a nice bunch it'llbe good to see you all again.
