Didn't I buy that off you last month? Have you got a great big box full? :shades: (Could have been someone else, I have no short term memory)

Call On Me does it for me.

With the wonders of modern technology would it be possible to arrange a 'hands across the water' Soul Shack show with the Canadian Soul Shackers Scott Relf and Johnny Rivera - that'd be absolutely brilliant!

(If anyone is unaware of that one it's at https://www.soulshack45.com/

Nice one :shades:

Yep, it's no secret that me and the other 3 Orwellians (Baz Maleady, Flanny & Steve Connor) are having a chin wag at tomorrow's Orwell about how we can theme the Northern Room at the mini niter on bank holiday weekend Friday 25th Aug.

When we've done, we'll run the ideas past young Mr B and see where we can go from there :shades:

The Shack is obviously precious to a lot of like minded Souls and we must do all we can to ensure it doesn't get blown away the next time a strong wind comes along!

With the do's in London and oop north, the donations & sales of past shows.........Mark, do you now realise that there are quite a few people out there who like what you do!

Cheers
