A proud mum talks about her son...


My eldest John, (16) is a blues guitarist. He has been playing guitar for 2 years thereabouts...it is his passsion. More than a hobby...(just don't mention that he looks like a young Elvis!!)

He is currently involved in the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society - Youth in Blues Project. This culminates in a 'Battle of the Bands' style playoff mid-September.

Last night, he was offered a chance for his band - "Rags & Old Iron" - to be the headline act for a function organised for this Saturday to aid the local CFA.
(Long story short - the person organising the 'entertainment' failed to do so, and John' and his band were thought of as an emergency replacement)
This is a function for the local High School age youth. A femal vocalist and a DJ have also been called in to help.

John and his band will be playing 2 sets - from 7-8pm and from 10 to 11:30pm.
The really exciting bit is that Southern FM 88.3 will be broadcasting the function live from 10pm. They also stream their transmission..

Please tune in on Saturday night if you are able - this will be John's first Public appearance and we wish him and his band all the best!
