Hi Samba Galez, A million thanks for such a brilliant performance last Saturday, you could see how much the whole village enjoyed it, and it was just great to catch up with you. We hope you can return to the fete next year as it wouldn’t be the same without you.
Cheers and many many thanks again
Saw you guys today at the Blaenavon Heritage celebrations. Loved the rhythms! Amazing. Couldn’t stop moving. Got the party going.😊
Saw the band many times in the heritage days in Blaenavon. I took part with the local schools and helped make costumes with Ben and Jude and played drums and steel pans, which I loved. Always a super day.
