The Swan gigs, April 20th & 21st, 2012

Two gigs last weekend, both at pubs called the Swan. On Friday night we played at the Swan in Hampton Wick, which turned out to be a very good gig considering that we had never met the dep drummer before. Jon Coulson stepped in at the last minute and did a great job for us. A good crowd and Brian, the new landlord, was very pleased with the gig. On Saturday night we played at the Swan in Farnborough (right next to the famous airfield). We've played there quite few times before and you never quite know what sort of crowd is going to turn up. Usually it's a mixture of young and not so young. Saturday seemed to be full of very young things. One of them, in a rather fetching blue dress and dark blue beret kept exposing a rather pert backside to all and sundry all evening. Unfortunately for the band it was of the male variety so we didn't show much (any!) interest. Next Friday we're playing at the Fox & Hounds in Church Crookham, near Fleet, usually a very good gig.
