GIG: U-Turn @ The Gun, Horsmonden

Charity gig at The Gun, Horsmonden

Having been a bit quiet on the gig front due to the COVID situation, U-Turn thought it was about time we played at our home venue, The Gun. Our charity of choice is The Hospice in the Weald, so we thought we may be able to raise some money for them in the process.

U-Turn formed up with a variety of line-ups to get plenty of musicians involved. Neil, Steve, Steve Hatch and Pete Billing got thing started with some Rock n’ Roll, next up was Chris, Steve, Pete B and Pete R with some mellow numbers before U-Turn proper played with Neil, Tim, Chris, Pete B, Pete R and Rob.

Thanks to the Tracey, Martin, staff and our audience for making it such a successful night raising £225 for The Hospice in the Weald who sent us a letter of thanks. Thanks to all the musicians who played and a special shout out for David Lofts who kindly helped set up even though he was unable to play.
