That's Fester, DRD67 and Stevo - drums and Imani was on piano but I bet he plays other instruments too. Stevo did say once he started on piano.

Why are your drums in the shed DRD67? - is IT Dan's shed Confused
I knew you would have some interesting band names in your past Cool

Do they have an open mike night at TTC?

Excellent Very Happy

Got a real Dexy's vibe going on there, and its not just the Horns and Organ.

Nice one, musicians, playing Music!!!

Hey.. I lived in Oz for six years, the picture was taken in our spare room over there.. I kept the Roland pads, but gave away the Ludwig kit to the local school as we needed the room in our container when we moved back over ... I've a DW kit now with two of the pads (ala Brad) I've also kept the V-Drum snare which has a trigger on it that gives me a nice rimshot effect, again like Brads' set up.. I'll get a picky up

Gave up Soccer at the age of 32 and picked up a Trumpet and now play in long established 2-Tone covers band Orange Street and also play in my mate's sons original Ska band The Offbeat Offensive doing mostly originals with the odd classic number thrown in.

What was the better hobby Football or Music ? Music by a mile.

Circular bandstands give amateur cameramen hithereto previously unavailable access:


Silverton Hutchison on Saxophone there, though you'll have to take my word for it as you can barely hear him let alone see him. The nod & a wink I give halfway through there is at a rather beautiful lady walking past. As soon as she smiled at me I realized I just tried to flirt with one Ms P Black........... Embarassed
