GIG: U-Turn @ Hurst Green

Benefit gig for Hospice in The Weald

U-Turn were asked to play at a benefit gig for the Hospice in The Weald organised by the Hawkhurst Bowls Club. We formed up with Neil, Chris, Del and Mark Ironmonger on bass, making his second appearance for U-Turn. There were special guest appearances by Van Greg aka The Axeman from Athens and Steve Large.
