Back to band after a week off.
Tried out some new stuff...
Carole King....sounded good on the first play through.
Dug out Barnum which we last tried about 5 years ago...
last time we couldn't play it, this time it sounded reasonable and we got through it...the standard has improved....despite the fact it's a rubbish print from a Holland publisher...bar numbers on parts don't tie up, 1st/2nd time bars missed off etc.etc.
Porgy and Bess much better this second time through.
Gilbert and Sullivan medley....getting there, but I couldn't stand rehearsing it for too long!!
Decided to ask George to take the band next week as i'm away the week after, and I will be back late for the gig.George will take the gig.
Played hn at the end in Malaguena...couldn't see George's beat from where I was sitting, so a bit of a nightmare...still I enjoyed it.
