A grand night out with The Marketing-Tings

On Friday night The Marketing-Tings (of which I am the humble Bass player) played a charity gig at The Silver Fox, Taverham, ably supported by the wildman of Wymondham, Gazza D. We did it to boost the Virgin London Marathon fundraising efforts of Ben, Simon and James and by the end of the night we’d raised £1000 in total for their chosen charities, Cancer Research UK, the Haiti Appeal and CLIC Sargent . It was very, er, intimate and sometimes it was hard to distinguish between the audience and the band – it was a little like that scene in The Blues Brothers when they play Rawhide, but without the chicken wire. However, we went down a storm (and thanks for all the nice comments on Twitter and Facebook folks).
