Another Super Sesh

Monday September 26 saw another Super Sesh in The Shed.

PBGB was honoured to have another stellar line-up of local musical luminaries in The Shed for an afternoon of fun and general musical bonhomie.

We had a full house, with the following in attendance :

Pete, Gus, Kev, Chris, Ken, Lyndon, and visitors Dave Hannagan, Pol O’Shea, Garry Carson Jones, Mark Bolsius, and Jenny Halper.

Who are these people ?

Info. on Garry can be viewed under a previous PBGB Blog posting dated July 4, 2011, and by clicking HERE

At the July Super Sesh Garry sang and played lead guitar on his song I Am, which you can play by clicking on the title on right of screen. Brilliant Garry !

Dave Hannagan has a fine musical pedigree, including a stint with Greg Quill’s Country Radio – see

But best of all, Dave is a fabulous blues singer who absolutely starred on Monday, and we hope to post a song from the Super Sesh featuring Dave on vocals very soon.

Pol O’Shea, likewise, has a life-long connectivity with the world of music – far too much to mention here. But if you Google Pol O’Shea you will see just what we mean. Pol played some superb guitar lines on his trusty Strat at the Super Sesh, and again, we hope to post an example or two of his brilliant licks very soon.

Mark Bolsius made a very welcome return to The Shed on Monday. You can read more about Mark, and see what a handsome fellow he is,  by reading PBGB Blog postings dated 17 and 20 February 2011. You can also hear Mark’s great keyboard work clicking on the song ‘Autumn Leaves Jam’ on the right of this page.

Jenny was a first time ‘Shedder’. Welcome Jenny !  Jenny has sung with a number of bands around the district, and when you hear her you will hear why ! We hope to post Jenny’s excellent rendition of the George Gershwin standard ‘Summertime’, soon.

PBGB extends a warm welcome to all these great artistes. Please make a habit of dropping in for Seshes !

Monday was just great fun. What with 11 people in The Shed all blazing away ( and having a beer or three ), and with no agenda other than sheer enjoyment, getting good recordings is a secondary concern. But we have listened through the afternoon’s proceedings, and we should soon be able to stitch together some songs that will give friends of PBGB a chance to hear what these great musos can do. Watch this space !

Some photos of the newcomers............
Pol’s Strat. If that were a hot rod it would be called a Rat Rod. Is it in fact a Rat Strat ?

Pol - Thanks for coming Pol - blistering licks!

Jenny and Dave - A very warm welcome and a standing invitation to come on back.

Garry - Always a big happy smile!
