Friday of last week we had the Lefkas Singers choir perform for us in Remezzo's bar. They were excellent the first few songs were performed by about ten female members of the choir, I think probably the most competent performers (but don't quote me on that!). Later they were joined by the male section and the rest of the female voices, I would guess at perhaps somewhere around thirty people in total.

While Pete Winnett is back in England there has been no regular guitar sessions on the marina but last week a couple of guys and I got together whilst the ladies were out exercising and had our own jamming session which went down remarkably well. We are all of a similar standard technically but we bring an eclectic music taste together between us so the end result is quite pleasing really. No disrespect to Pete's session but we are less tightly held because there are no true beginners present so we can improvise and try things without being constrained by the lowest common denominator. I have really enjoyed being with Chris and Keith over the three sessions we have had thus far and we've started to sort out some songs we can perform pretty well together. X factor it ain't (although I've seen some real disasters on that!) but enjoyable it is.
