This year certainly been a really important year for us, playing in :
Our final show of the year is:
Whilst it is unfortunate that Paul [Mendham] is not able to join us for this gig, we are delighted that we will have our excellent deputy drummer Oli Davis with us.
Oli is also from Salem’s hometown, Hull – an excellent drummer and artist. He’s done a magnificent job learning the full Salem set in a short time. Our final (pre-Dubai) rehearsal at the weekend was great – and we’re all set to go ROCKING in The Music Rooms! Heathrow – here we come!
