Yeah, I've seen the Wayne McConnell Quartet too, and they're alright I ssuppose, if you like that sort of thing. What they need though is a bit of show biz razz-a-ma-tazz, some sparkley suits and frilly cuffed shirts, some backing singers and a 6 piece horn section, a bit of a light show and a troupe of dancing chimps, maybe a bubble machine, some dry ice and few white tigers, a singer or two and more songs, some motown numbers would go down well, oh yeah, and a spectacular finish with the sax player tied up in chains, placed in a sack and hoisted up above the stage on a burning rope, and hope he gets out before h crashes down on the drummer. Then they would be worth seeing.

This is my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site used to be updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
