A fabulous night with Luke and Melissa...not often you get a cranked-up Gretsch White Falcon, champagne, designer birthday cake, light explosives, snogging on stage....in a "folk club".
Plus a debut of a love song Luke had written as a present for Melissa's 30th birthday (today). I think several brownie points were won...
Not only that....the biggest turn-out we've had since Vin Garbutt in early January (though the average age last night was a decade or two younger than for Vin)
