The sound isn't great - just done on a phone, but I can confirm the bass sounded great!  Got the walking part spot on.  These guys are all 14!  I'd just about learned to keep the thick strings at the top by that age......

That was fun to watch. The girl singing definitely has a lot of attitude, and carries herself as a good front person. When she learns to sing a bit better, I think she'll be really good. Your son's playing was quite good. I wanted to watch a couple of the other videos, but I've been real pressed for time today.

That's very good and agree with what John's saying, she has a bit of attitude which really works

Thanks guys! :)

This was a band put together during a week's summer rock school just for this one performance.

There where half a dozen bands and an audience of 400 or so people in the local civic hall.  Will usually plays drums but there were already enough drummers!  The other kids in the band were at his last school, hence the Croft Reunion name.

I vaguely remember Megan as a quiet little kid - she seems to have come out of her shell in the last 3-4 years since I saw her!

Girls have a habit of doing that!! ;D

If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.
