Not so long ago we got an email from a fellow who had listened to the ABC Bega interview with Neil and Pete back in May 2010. Brian was very interested in what goes on in The Shed and tracked us down after having moved to Merimbula from Canberra.

We interrogated Brian at length, and under the pressure of water boarding ( we invented it, not the CIA ) he admitted that :

- He started music as a drummer and bugler in the high school army cadet band and graduated to drum major!

- He later realised that his true love was sax

- While in Canberra, he played with groups of friends including at The National Folk Festival, and with Sterling Primmer’s band as well as the Cajun group Allez Gator.

- He has done lots of teaching music to school kids

- He is interested in exploring harmonic structures, writing songs, playing harp and guitar, and singing.

Well............we invited Brian over for a blow.

Would you believe that on his very first visit we hit the recorder and came up with the version of Neil’s Things Must Change that you can hear by clicking HERE

Neat !!

By featuring on a PBGB recording that we like, Brian has automatically qualified as a bona fide PBGB Family Member !

Welcome Brian.

Come see Brian blow his horn with us at Ford Park, Merimbula on New Year’s Eve.

New PA

If you were at the Wharf gig you'll know how good the PA sounded - good news is we have now bought it and will be using it at gigs from now on. Thanks to Frans!

New song download available

A new PBGB friend dropped in yesterday for a sesh and hopefully three recordings will be posted as a result.
Brian Kille (sax) joined Ken Vatcher (drums), Pete (backing vocals), Chris (bass), Gus (guitar) and Neil (guitar/vocals) for three songs. Here's the first one.

What now for PBGB?

We're going back into The Shed for some recording, working on some new material and looking at the gig department.

Setting up The Shed more like a studio tomorrow (9/11/2010) and starting work on Thursday (11/11/2010).

Exciting times!
