Myself and my wife Alyson had the greatest honour
along with other members from the
George Formby Society to play for the
Queen at Her Majesty's birthday celebrations.

On a Personal Note...

Alyson & I would like to thank the
George Formby Society especially the
President & Secretary; Gerry & Vivien Mawdsley
for choosing us to be a part of this golden opportunity.
It was a great honour and our pleasure to be a part of
this extremely special and historic event.
In George's words - "It turned out nice again".
