Well here it is, the second instalment of the Roy Bridge meet weekend, and the much talked about appearance by Monty :D , doing his rendition of American Pie, unfortunately it also includes a short (fortunately) burst of his stand up “comedy” effort! :shock:
Also surprise appearances by Leithysburbs and Gable Gable End, with there hidden musical talents :clap: .
But first to “wet” your appetite is our (Mikeyb0305, Leithysburbs and Gable Gable End) walk up into the clouds and rain on Stob Ban.
Hope you enjoy it…..we did!

I can hear the crickets chirping after Monty's jokes. The singing was great, I couldn't carry a tune in a wheelbarrow so don't ask me to help the band at the next meet.
