Hi all : the Events Management Unit would like to give a big thanks to all who performed and attended The Gov Afternoon Random Jam / Weekend Warrior Band session yesterday. Hosting 8 bands with 10 minute change over times it was really good too see all performers were ready to go for their sets and willing to help out to make this work perfectly. There was a really good vibe going on with quite a big crowd yesterday and the camaraderie between all the members was very sociable and supportive and that is what we are about. Well done and we will do this again soon. ... See MoreSee Less
