    Hi Folks
    I'm looking for info on any small beerfests, short tours (3/4 days etc) that people know of that I could take a band to? Ideally, something short would help as there are problems with days off for the players.

    If anyone has any info then I would be really grateful
    Many Thanks

    We have the same issue with time off in our band! We're hoping to do a 3 day tour to Kent. Leaving Thursday evening, arriving Folkestone very late. Friday, Saturday, Sunday gigs return Sunday evening. One day off work required! Loads of hotels and bandstands in the area plus a good concert going audience. If you PM me I'd be more than willing to give you details of Hotels etc or generally try to help you out.
    Hope this helps

    I Certainly Do, though whether Howard will remember be is another matter - He was a rubbish horn player initially when I was trying to teach him in the YP Band there.
