Welcome to 2006!

Well, how is the hangover? Recovered?

2006, a brand new year and no doubt you have given yourself some resolutions to go with it. Well so have we!

This year we aim to be: bigger, better, more inclusive and retain that sense of fun...we hope you approve!

Now, as far as we can tell there no live events today except for the open mic night at the Westgate in Taunton to keep your musical bones happy.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) the picking are rather slim as well.
