I'm going to move this to Abbey Road--I think it would fit better there.

Yep...it was a pretty awesome week. I really enjoyed the performances of the bands at the Royal Court Theatre,Chavise Park,Cavern club & pub, Sports Grill, the Adelphi rooms...hmm...I liked Johnny Silver, British Export (especially Gavin) & his solo act (great George tunes) and his uncanny resemblance to a young George! I also liked the Australian Beatles,The FabFaux (great performance of the WHITE ALBUM tracks)The instrumental group Chantal,The Return, Lenny Pane.

Yep, my views are pretty well known here, but Fab Faux, Gavin Pring & British Export, and I loved the Paul Solo gig with Banned on The Run and all the Macca guest stars such as Howie Casey's Brass section, Henry McCulloch (My Love solo by the artist himself! WOW!) And Denny Seiwell, but for me the highlights were 1. The Faux White Album, and 2. Every time Gavin Pring played.
Also, I have to say, meeting Donnemarie and all my other friends from all over the world was really cool, and it is the real reason that the festival is so great, they are really just family!

GO NEXT YEAR, oh and heres an idea I just thought of, why dont we all meet up next year? (get the sarcasm, Harbidge??) I dont know, maybe around the piano in the Adelphi on the Sunday!!

Hey Donna, how are you? You know something, I only just realised that we could have looked Harbidge's details up on the site, his photo is there! Now I feel really dumb, anyhow, good to hear from you buddy, I will NEVER forget Fab Faux and The White Album, I think they should record it! I got an email from Laurie, I am trying to pursuade her to log into Beatlelinks, she would be such a cool member dont you think?

See you (and Harb/Mike) next year.

Ah man...now I really feel DUMB! Your right, he's pic is in his profile! Sorry Harbridge, I apologize. Yeah, the FabFaux were so the BEST!!!
I emailed the group and I told them how awesome their performance was-and Rich Pagamo (the drummer) and told him I was the one who caught his hat that Bill Heckle threw, and I that I wanted to return it to him personally, but Neil wouldn't hear of it!!! He thanked me anyway for returning it (it belonged to his grandfather)

I'll persuade Laurie to get on this board, cuz I know she would really LOVE IT!!!

Here is a link to a tribute band who played at the 2003 week.

It is The Beatles Revival Band Prague from the Czech Republic and they played at the Cavern.

You can download (very fast) samples from songs and video from the Cavern performance.

It sounds very good to me.
