14th November – Our second appearance at the Henley Blues and Jazz festival as at The Blackwood Arms
– in Burnham Beeches, and also our second paid gig. PLUS – we had to play for two hours.
– Howard could not join us, so Marco Farris deputised.

10th November – We were thrilled to be a part of the very first Henley Blues and Jazz week.
– appearing at the Saracens Head, in the centre of Henley.  This was our FIRST full paid gig –
– a veritable milestone, AND we had to play two sets of about 50 minutes.

19th October  –   We appeared at the Global Cafe as part of the Oxjam Reading charity music day.  We played
a half hour set to a very enthusiastic and appreciative crowd.

15th October we play a half hour guest spot at Jagz in Ascot.

5th  October at Norden Farm Arts Centre in Maidenhead.  A great venue for local musicians to showcase
their material in The Studio Sessions.  Appeared as a duo with Howard.

26th September I played a solo gig near St.Antonin, France.  Lovely music club – well received.

25th August we were the special guests on Paul Readman’s radio show at Music World Radio where he was
celebrating his fifth birthday in radio.  Our FIRST  radio spot. It was a live show and a video of the complete session can be seen on my ReverbNation page.
By this time we probably had a hour or so of material.

18th August we spent a day with Badger Music Media filming some new videos to post on You Tube, and
also keep the momentum going on the  ReverbNation page where the videos are attracting a lot of
views.  The first three videos from this session were posted a few days later.

15th August we played a few songs at the 21 South Street Arts Centre, Reading at Third Thursday Blues.
Great evening with Garry Smith hosting for Andy.

30th June Wittfest Festival – A lovely charity festival – appearing as a trio, and again, billed simply as
John Cee Stannard.  This was our FIRST  outing after agreeing to work together a bit more.
We probably had little more than half an hour of material at this stage.

14th June  2013   Boars Bridge Festival.  Mike and I had played several floor spots at local folk clubs during the
year or so prior to this.  Although Mike and I played this as a duo, we were just beginning to think about
moving forward as a trio with Howard on harmonica.

10th May 2013.  The Doob Doo Album was completed and back from the factory just in time for the Launch Night
at Poppy’s Folk and Acoustic Music Club in Yately where we made our FIRST  appearance as a trio –
appearing as John Cee Stannard.  For this event, the formation of the trio was a one off event.  It was more
than another month before we decided it might be nice to put a set together and try to get some gigs.
