I have never been described as a musician before but I'll gladly take it from the ITV News website as they obviously know what they are talking about!This is great news and again, it is testament to the brilliant Matt Richards who is well on the way to making himself and twenty four other Zoomers into national heroes! Where will it all end? Perhaps getting stopped in the street for a request for our autographs?
IN THE LIMELIGHT
Matt Richard's wonderful video clip is keeping the George Formby Society, in these dark and depressing times, in the limelight with the Zoomer gang's activities. All the players who meet every night and play and enjoy forty magic minutes are delighted to be a part of something that has obviously never happened within GFS history.
WHAT WOULD THEY THINK?
Who would have thought that when the founder members met for the first time in The Imperial Hotel in Blackpool after travelling from all over the UK, that we would now be able, during a national crisis, meet up and play, laugh and enjoy each other's company, and all at the press of a button on a screen?
THE BEST GEORGE FORMBY SPIRIT
We all sincerely hope that this pandemic will soon be under control and one day that we shall all be together in Blackpool again, but until such times, the GFS members are all pulling together and making the best of it in typical George Formby spirit.No wonder the outside world is starting to take notice!PP - 29/04/2020
Thanks to Tom Cutler for the clip and to Jeanette and Tim Austinfor their help with this project.
