Tribute Night mailout: Gibb it up for The Bee Gees... (sent 27-Feb-14)

My dearest fellow Tributonians,

Welcome to the end of February and the official commencement of spring!

The Bee Gees night is now full and reclining in its lazy boy chair in front of the fire, cradling its tender tummy and looking forward to a good snooze. We have had a very enthusiastic response and a rapid take-up of song requests. We have had one very unenthusiastic response as well, but that's show business! There is now a small waiting list of people who didn't quite get in before fullness was reached and if you wish to join them, please do let me know. As is always the way with these things, people will reassess their commitments or discover diary clashes or be faced with other slightly more critical life events between now and then, so there is always hope of a space opening up. Most of the people on the waiting list for The Clash night ended up playing.

Talking of The Clash night, our friend Ross Hale made a film of the whole night, which can be found on the Tribute Night Facebook page or by following the link below. There is also an album of photos wot I took on the night to be found on the Facebook page. If you have any Tribute Night photos or videos of your own, please feel free to share them on the Facebook page, but remember to check that your privacy settings for your photos or videos are set to 'public' or it won't work!
