    Two rehearsals done...third to come Sunday am...and the sound and quality of this "double" band has begun to emerge. Ray Farr is handling the ensemble brilliantly, with skill and humour. Joe Cook is awesome...worth the entry fee alone....the fastest Czardas I've ever accompanied...and on a flippin' bass!.

    It is a great experience being involved in this project. The level of concentration and talent is inspiring; and the programme is excellent.

    If you can't make it to the Sage on Sunday, make real sure you don't miss it on Listen to the Band.

    Can't wait....

    Just to update you all....The concert was a great success....helped by a very appreciative audience......Joe Cook's performance was stunning and Age of Kings sounded excellent in such a fine venue...with any luck this will be just the beginning for Northern "All Stars". The concert will be aired on LTTB in two sessions......expected to be Feb. 24th and March 3rd....don't miss it!
