GIG: U-Turn @ The Bedford, Tunbridge Wells

Another fun night at The Bedford

One of our last gigs before the first lockdown was at The Bedford in Tunbridge Wells, so we were delighted to be offered a gig there, particularly in January. The old stage in the corner has gone but that meant we had a bit more floor space than usual.

U-Turn formed up with Neil, Chris, Tim, Pete Billing and Paul Annis making his debut. Steve Large joined us to play some mellow numbers to get the evening started. Jim Cooper, a regular jammer at The Gun, did a Special Guest slot for us with three rocky numbers.

The audience were great fun and got dancing very early in the proceedings. So we thank them and The Bedford for a great night! See you all again soon!
