Happy Anniversary, Your Maj

Well, it's 60 years this week since Queen Elizabeth II got married, and here's a pic of the gig my dad did to celebrate the wedding in 1947 (Martin Committee tenor sax, extreme right).

I'm still playing the tenor, though the mouthpiece and lig are in the drawer. Have just reconditioned the clarinet. The stand is still going strong, and I use the sling on my soprano. Nothing like a bit of continuity.

The tuxedo is long gone - if I dressed like that people would think I was Klaus Nomi.

That's a nice photo, potiphar! Your dad looks like a dude there and it's so nice that you've kept using his stuff! Also, the drummer has got v mad hair, which is always good.

I shall avoid comment re her Majesty. (Feeling a touch republican today.)
