Hi Chris,
Really enjoyed the selection of 60s faves that Fluke played at the South London Swimming Club party last Friday at Tooting Bec Lido. Thanks so much for letting me get up and sing “Gimme Some Lovin” and “It’s All Over Now” with you. See you there next year!

'Aqua' Fluke (with Tom Robinson) at the Tooting Lido, 6th July

One of the best gigs of the year for Fluke. Beautiful setting and weather, good sound, good food and Tom Robinson joining the band. We got talking to Tom before the gig and he was keen to get up and sing a few numbers with the band, so in the second set we invited him up and he sang three numbers. He's still got a great voice and is a genuinely nice guy. Perhaps he'll join us again next year when we play at the Lido, as the South London Swimming Club want to book us for their next summer party.

Fluke At The Pool, Tooting Bec Lido, 6th July

Our next gig is at the Tooting Lido on the 6th July. This is the annual private party for the South London Swimming Club. Some tickets still available. Speedos at the ready.

The Horns, Crondall, 30th June

A good gig at the Horns on Saturday. Pictured are, on the left, Tommy O'donnell (drums) and Patrick Quirke (bass). The landlord (John Staniland) entertained us all after the gig by playing a selection of his favourite records and revealing a hidden talent for singing. Next time we'll get him up to do a number or two.
