from the tiny stage at Beach 162 behind the Premier kit that
Robbo brought for the gig
opening salvo for the Frankston Guitar Fest.
9.10.17 - Billy Dettmer was worrying that
nobody would turn up at Beach 162, the venue he'd chosen to
host the 20th anniversary show for the Frankston Guitar Festival
that he had a such a big hand in presenting late in the 20th
century, but the signs were already good when Broc and I arrived.
For a start the weather was good, which counts when you're playing
under canvas in the Garden Bar, and there were already people
of the right vintage chomping into the excellent pizzas from
the house kitchen. So what if we'd not played note since early
in the previous month and we hadn't done a trio gig since 2016?
And so it was that we all had an enjoyable evening together
tickling our memory cells and exploring the relms of trio-dom.
