Above is a picture of Phil [Strat ]- lead guitarist from the band "Steamy Windows " in action playing a guitar Andrew custom built especially for him ! Andrew has been Phils guitar tech for a while now- not long before he was first diagnosed with M.N.D. Andrew held a large BQ at his home in Denbigh- his own group The Resistance played [ with Andrew on the drums ] and so did Steamy Windows- with both bands jamming the night away until the early hours- we had a fabulous time ! Marques had been set up on the lawn and a large wire log basket was lit, helping keep the mosquitoes at bay ! It was a lovely summers evening- with lots of wine beer and food- some people set up tents and stayed the night !
Phil and Charlie [another band member ] came along to support our Sainsburys bag pack last year-helping us raise over £1 000.00 for the M.N.D.A , This is the guitar Andrew built for Phil [pictured below ] last year- though he didn`t do the artwork on it-A graphic designer did that ! It`s a beauty isn`t it ?
Phil and Charlie and the rest of the band members have said all along that they would like to do something to support Andrew and to help raise awareness and funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, Ann Jones chairperson of the Prestatyn Cons Club has known Andrew for many years -in fact her husband use to play snooker with Andrew ! she approached me last year offering to put on a social night- we have set the date for March the 19 th- Ann asked me if I knew of a band that would come and play so I suggested Steamy Windows ! They were delighted and said yes straight away ! I`am organizing the raffle and I have made a start today ! If any one has any unwanted Christmas gifts or would like to donate a prize for our raffle please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to everyone for all your kind words and messages of support this week- we have really appreciated it .[see comment on last post Dai bends ]
