Boys’ Afternoon 5th January 2018

Another Rockin’ Friday at Duncan’s

“Thanks to Duncan for his hospitality, and to share the fellowship, the food (brilliant as always Duncan) and the  frivolity that makes us what we are.

The music was fab as it always is with its diversity and quality and the opportunity to hear and experience sounds that otherwise may pass us by on the other side.

I have been so enriched through knowing you all and the fact that we still think that what we do is still worthwhile is, for me, very satisfying.”


“Our group has such a diverse and, IMHO, fantastic taste in music, which I have learned so much from. I am grateful to be part of it and you have all enriched my understanding of music. However, the best thing of all is the friendships and warmth within the group. This is what we all come back for.”


“What a great afternoon – thank you all for your friendship and inspiration”


“Well guys it’s all been said – except the unexpected and absolute delight of a rousing Boys Night chorus of Mighty Quinn. Fantastic!”


“The biggest highlight of the  year isn’t one particular piece of music or album or film……it’s you all..it’s us.”
