Wanderin' about Cats

After  our recent short interview video behind the scenes at Merseycats, we thought we would wander about the show area. Unfortunately the lights are down and the bands are loud, but I hope it gives you an idea of the atmosphere on the night. The new 20th Anniversary Tee-shirt was shown for the first time modelled by the "Lovely" Josh. The Chairman Wally Shepard played with a harp in the wrong key (As ever, he blamed Dave Myers). We managed to grab a short interview with Dave Forshaw who was one of the leading theatrical agents from the sixties who famously booked the Beatles for £10. Perhaps we can coax Dave into giving us another interview soon, as he is one of the remaining "I really was there" people and I'm sure he has lot's of fascinating stories to tell. Apologies to The Chris Rimmer Band for cutting them off in midstream (Somebody nudged me). Welcome back to Frank Hoply on keyboards who has recently joined Chris's band. Jim Kelly was up again guesting with the band. Just another great night at Cats, full up once again.

He's only been back playing for a few weeks!ricky gleason

But already he's a star in Germany again. Ricky  Gleason has just returned from Germany where he performed at three gigs. He is pictured here with Bernardo Germany's top artist who is really into Merseybeat, Bernardo's wife Elfi and Ricky' brother Ian . Bernardo gave Ricky a signed picture of Paul McCartney. I'm not sure what's on the front of the T-shirt, perhaps Maja can translate. Ricky has a new CD out with part of the price going to MerseyCats, so please buy it.
