New Songs for a New Season!

We had a fantastic session last night at The New Highwood and enjoyed learning new songs. Check out the SONG SHEETS page at the top for PDFs of the new songs.

Here’s what we did…

Barbara Ann (The Beach Boys)
Hotel California (The Eagles)
Here’s my demo so you can listen to the solo!
Honolulu Rock-a Roll-a (Moon Mullican)
Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay (Otis Redding)

It was so cool to have the group sing a song for me and Richard… I loved the re-working of Rockin All Over The World! Thank you everybody 🙂 it made my whole week 🙂

New Songs February-March 2015

We’ve had a busy old few weeks playing lots of songs together and playing a gig last week. A big thank you to all of you who came out to play for the RVS AGM – we had a great time and the audience really enjoyed it. They even sang along and it was lovely to play some new songs too.

In our last session we started working on some new songs… if you missed the session, here are the songs we did!
