    Will be good to play for Bodmin again its been some years and they were such a good band before they had a bad patch will be nice to see them back, West of England really needs names like Bodmin.

    I can't wait to go back to Exmouth...after spending 3 years at uni there, I really miss it! :( It feels like home when I go back!

    I'll be there helping out Pendennis. And my mother will be helping out Hayle!

    Is anyone actually playing with the band that they are registered with?!!! :biggrin:

    I don't think so Liz! lol

    Exmouth wouldn't be Exmouth if you actually recognised the band that's on stage! ;)

    The way it should be. Let's scrap registration altogether! It's a pain in the bum!!!

    Jimbo, Any band having had the famous you helping out, can only go from strength to strength and should I assume that certain bands are pot hunting this year then - lol???
