Oh no. No Amelie.... Despite this dreadful oversight, we'll still come along. :D we'll introduce ourselves for sure. I'm off to Exeter on Friday to visit a very elderely Aunt and I'm hoping to see Bernard Loffet ( a very very fine diatonic player) at the Exeter French and Breton dance club. See you Sunday.

Just returned from the performance in Shoreham. Absolutely magical! Many thanks to all the ladies. My particular favourite piece was Katyusha but it was all great.

What, no video of the performance? Even a quickie? :)

We were there as well. A good balance of well arranged tunes. A very good performance indeed. I really liked La partida or Valse Venuezualien, it dosen't sound as good when I "play" it! Neither does Katuysha for that matter. With a bit of luck the No. 1's will come bck and do another concert at some point. And, no I didn't have a phone or camera with me. Sorry.

My favourite was the piece from Karl Jenkins' 'Palladio' suite, which is beautifully suited to accordions!

Sorry - only just realised that there was a second page and lots of unread messages! Thank you all for the positive feedback - we certainly enjoyed ourselves and hope to be back in the Brighton area again. Meanwhile - if any of you can make it to the London gigs.......!! :D
