The building process continues after three different , yet successful gigs. It was a nice first venture into Ireland for the Good Men. Everyone that was there in the Spring and Airbrake in Belfast, danced and sang their hearts out. We have been asked to return, with a view to maybe being included in the festival set-up, that is run by the club. Callander was more than well received. I can't walk out of my house, without being accosted/congratulated/praised by the local women and gentry. Port Patrick was great as well. What a beautiful setting to play a gig. Steve and Smiley were initiated into the 'Chewin' the Fat' dvd's, at the after show 'spin the bottle' and see who get's Willie party, (Tocher that is)! Well, we're all looking forward to our next show at King Tut's in Glasgow, where we will be joined onstage, by a very, very special guest. I would get a ticket in advance for this one , if you could, all joking apart, as there are already a lot of neophytes under the bands spell, who are most definitely coming to the show. Thanks to everyone for attending the shows, and hope to see you all soon.

When are the tickets going on sale Derek? And which outlets are likely to be used?

There is quite a bit of interest amongst friends already for this one, and they are asking me these questions

Looking forward to seeing you (again!)

Give that girl a coconut !!! The songwriting has been going really, really well. We are working on arrangements on Tuesday, and there will be a few surprise additions to the set at King Tut's, this will be the Greatest Show On Earth, believe me. It'll bring a tear to a glass eye.

I've got a connection with a radio station in the Midwest. Let me know how I can get your music to WAPS in Akron, Ohio. I would love to get that going for you Derek.

I'd also like to hear it for myself! The American debut on my stereo or computer. Is that possible, or has it already occurred? Jeannine

Derek...any news on the King Tut's tickets yet? I've had a look on their site and can't see anything.

Cheers for now.

Spoke to the agent today, and he said the gig is definitely confirmed. Have you tried ringing King Tut's yet?

Derek...gave KT's a call and they said the gig's not on their radar yet.

They suggested that I check their website after next Tuesday as this is the day it's usually updated.

Cheers for now.
