    Another successfull night and several local bands were represented in the audience. Carlton Frickley, Newstead, Bestwood, Carlton as far as I know.

    Long Eaton played to a really good standard with a varied mix of programme - good night apart from as mentioned Sharons jokes, they just do not get any better. Perhaps we could all club together and send her on a course or something! Seriously though well done and best of luck for your coming contest season -

    All welcome next week - Bestwood Black Diamonds Band - 8pm start.

    Thanks Ray we look forward to seeing Carlton play at Newstead in June . The band enjoyed the concert tonight, many thanks to Melanie and Newstead for inviting us to play at the Sunday Band Club. I hope the rest of the concerts prove to be a success. By the way thanks also to Lynden for coming to help us in hour of need.
