There had been some talk for some time during club runs and social bike rides about having a jamming session between guitarists (there are always more guitarists than actually needed in a band).
But things only started getting serious when Bren Vaughan and Maureen Wickson took matters into their hands and quickly a group of BRJ’rs was assembled in Bren’s study room one weekend in November 2014 as the running season was winding down. Ideas were exchanged, killer riffs were skilfully delivered and a preliminary song list was agreed.
The first rehearsal took place in Bren...Read more
