  1. I’m intrigued by your coy position on admission pricing.
    And it’s Mackey.

    • Ha,
      Oops. Thanks. (Sorry Carl – amended) I just couldn’t be bothered looking up the admission cost. I’ve had a hard time attending Bennetts since their highly-publicised and mega-hyped closing-for-ever wind-up. It was a very emotional time for lots of musicians, and the fact that they actually knew they were just going to milk it, then open up again same as ever…. Well… I’ve been played before, but that felt like a big play. Having said that, I attended the club for the first time (since they ‘closed’) last Sunday and it seems to be exactly as I remember it. Great sound. Nice people. Good piano (not that we used it). This will be great with Anning playing his music.

      • I’m sorry that was the way it panned out. The business of number crunching is ignorant or careless about human feelings or the rest of Nature’s creatures. I haven’t been since the reopening, only because nothing has appealed, but I’m a fan of Mat Jodrell. I may of heard Sam Anning in Perth years ago. Anyway I’m as keen as to hear this combo and to be able to stay to the finish!
