I was in two minds about going.
I wanted to try out playing my (almost-got-it-down) version of "Puttin' on the Ritz".
(It's a bit of a bugger to play and sing I'll have you know.)
Here's a link to my 3rd demo of it:
'Puttin' On The Ritz' (Berlin) Demo 03
Yes, I know it's to fast.
Yes, I know, I fluffed the vocal on the first Gm section.
I cheered myself by remembering one can't expect to make an omelette without breaking open the protective packaging of unborn chickens and emptying the contents out.
I didn't fancy going out much.
A wild telephone call appears.
Mr Paul suggests I should go to the RAFA.
I went to the RAFA.
I played 'Rizt'.
It went very well actually (better than the recording anyway).
Mr. Paul then presented me with a gift:
A Zydeco Tie!!
Thank you Mr. Paul.
