════════ Mad Cow Party Band (2019 - Present) ════════
IF YOU HAVE come this far on my journey or simply clicked on Mad Cow Party Band to see what it's all about you have reached my latest band.
You can't keep a good band down and Mad Cow was one of the best.
Krazy Kat had come to a grinding halt so what to do? Tony and I have known each other for well over 35 years now and the old saying "Great minds think alike" couldn't be more applicable here.
The day it was decided Krazy Kat was to finish Tony sent me a simple message, "Time to bring it back?" with the old Mad Cow video attached. At the time I received the message I was just about to hit send on an email saying "Is it time to think about bringing Mad Cow back?".
A couple of days later Tony contacted both Emilia and Perry from our Mad Cow days and they were interested so all we needed was a Bass player and Keyboardist. Perry suggested he contact Franky Valentyn who had done a few fill ins for Mad Cow. They were always great nights as Franky is such a great talent and front person. Franky is normally very busy and we thought, no way he'd get back into a band again but what's the harm in asking ... right? To our surprise and great joy he was interested, saying he had just recently been thinking of joining a band again. Tony found a Bass player Paul Eve and just like that we were a band again.

We started gigging in September 2019 click HERE for list of all gigs.
Be sure to check back for updates on how it's going.
After retiring, Mark Laidler has had the urge to put together another PA and lighting rig and has again started hiring to bands. So I have decided I'd like to tag along and give him a hand when I can. He's called it Giggin' About - PA & Lighting Hire and when he told people he was back it wasn't long and he was working again. It's been a lot of fun playing around with the lights again and having a few laughs with a good mate.
Mark and I are still tinkering with Two's Plenty and we record as often as we can and there is even talk of giving it a go live some day so we'll see what happens there.
So that's where I'm at, thanks for coming along on this ride with me. I hope you got that odd smile or two and maybe feel I have had a bit of a career worth reading about.
Please come back for more updates as my journey has not quite finished yet ... but for now, be happy.

** UPDATE AUGUST 2021 **
As I'm sure all of you are aware COVID-19 came into our lives back in early 2020 which caused most of the live entertainment industry to stop dead in it's tracks.
There was a small window where things started to return to normal around December but by April 2021 it was over when COVID mutated into the DELTA strain and we only managed to do two gigs during that time.
We are now back to square one with lockdowns and restrictions. At this stage it's looking like it will remain this way for the rest of the year. So Mad Cow are in limbo until restrictions are lifted.
Stay safe everyone!!
