November is looking like MORE fun! Tamworth country queen Leslie Avril is keen to put on a show , and so are we !! We have Zulya and the Children of the Underground coming on November 9th, PLUS Ross McLennan is gathering the ORCHESTRA together for another astonishingly good show in December. There’s word out about a ‘Girls girls girls do Nancy Sinatra Show ! Now that’ll be something , which reminds me of something Frank Sinatra once said , “I feel bad for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day”.
What more can I say folks, other than thanks, thanks and more thanks for reading, coming, swinging, dancing, drinking and Kastorizing!! Yes it IS such a thing. ‘To Kastorize: verb, meaning to have a good time at the Kastoria Music Club’.
SO it’s a Yasou from me and Ange (handsome sound man) and it’s toodle-ooh from the KMC gang. xx
