Our second year got off to a great start with our January 13th meeting though unfortunately we were missing some of our regular players. We were especially short on bass players so were very grateful to Paul, Lester and Michael for playing extra numbers, to Col and Daniel for swapping rhythm and lead to play bass, and to our visitor Jeff who played bass on some of our additional sets.
Our reduced number of bass players was offset with an increase in drummers and with the heatwave over the week leading up to our meeting the addition of Ron, George, Kerry and Les on drums helped ease the load on Roy and Barry. We also welcomed back John Marchingo who gave some great performances with his original Echolette.
The addition of Quentin's keyboards and harmony vocals by Paul and Ray also helped produce some excellent and very well balanced performances.
One of the highlights of the day was Daniel's performance of "Barracuda" originally recorded by The Pacifics in 1963. As Lester Vickary played rhythm on the original recording it was a great to have Lester present to hear Daniel play with Glenn on rhythm, Paul on bass and Roy on drums.
