Jam Buddy -
St Remigius Church,
Hethersett, resounded to the strains of late fifties
rock as a group of friends got together to revive the
music of Buddy Holly. Old Buddies Jamming is the loose
name for a group of musicians who get together on an
occasional basis in different formats to jam and play
music. On this occasion “five old friends” provided
the backdrop with one of them travelling to Hethersett
from Spain for the evening. The group consisted of John
Head on guitar and vocals, Bill Peterkin (guitar and
vocals), Robert Kett (rhythm guitar), Ross Anderson
(bass guitar and vocals) and Simon McDougall (drums).
The evening of nostalgia was well supported by a very
appreciative audience who donated over £500 in aid of
church funds. Church members provided a buffet.
|Brian's Return -
Church began a year of celebrations to mark the 25th
