    The catch is - I need work.

    I am enjoying being out of banding at the moment (for last 6 months) and have no particular desire to return. However the sad lack of employment around at the moment leads me to clutch at straws.

    If your band has need for a reasonable (if somewhat rusty) EEb player - and someone within your organisation could come up with some sort of gainfull occupation (I'll have a go at anything - I'm not proud) then I could be tempted out of retirement.

    It's a bit cheeky I know - and maybe some will slate me for my motives. But there we are, desperate times lead to desperate measures.

    You've got mine - although we dont' need a bass player! or have any jobs for that matter. Good Luck tho, it's tough at the moment. The other alf's just gained employment today, and not before time. . .

    Form a queue to snap up this bargain package.

    In my day you just joined a "Works" Band and Hey Presto, instant employment with a decent wage.
    A very handy option in hard times.
    In the dim and distant past, both Steve and I were gainfully employed (at different times) by a certain engineering company on the understanding that we signed for the company Band.
    Happy days.

    Good luck Mate, though the ones who employ you will be the lucky ones.

    Not as daft as it might sound Mr B - and that's quite unusual for you:wink:.
    This was how it often used to be, and there's no harm in trying anything in trying times!
    Good luck with the search - surely someone must want a wall building with a touch of "sun has got his hat on!!"

    I'm sure you'd bluff your way through it just the same!
