Well, that was fun! Tiring but fun! The tour with Mike Farris, covered 2,500 miles between 9 venues over 11 days, which is something I’ve never done even in my pre-motherhood, pre-pandemic days, never mind after my recent lengthy sabbatical. Ha, that’ll teach me!
Mike and I both suffered some throat and voice issues during the tour but we got through and we both want to thank everybody who came out and supported us across all the dates, which ended up as one big party in Uckfield. Mike’s a fantastic singer and an inspirational character on and off stage. It was a total treat to have him with us as well as having ‘the classic’ band line up back on stage again after several years – Nat Martin (guitar), Stevie Watts (keys), Andy Tolman (bass) and Magic Johnson (drums). Those four have such a musical chemistry and, as ever, they all went above and beyond the call of duty on the tour, again, not just on the stage but behind the scenes too – thank you guys, what a team!!
