To all our friends and fans who have supported us through the
years a big thank you from all of the band. It seems only yesterday we started out as a new band but almost seven years have
gone by with some members leaving and new guys coming in.
It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride in some ways with so
many of you embracing our easy go lucky, happy style on stage. To be honest we still get overwhelmed with emotion when you
all stand and shout, scream and bully us into " just one more song " at the end of the night.
Don't stop because we don't mind singing you another song as
we have always said "life is fun" and when we are in concert "it's our party".
We still get surprised sometimes when we meet all of you after
the concerts and you tell us how far you travel to see us perform. We think you are a little crazy too! keep coming though!
Many of you who were strangers in the audience have now become
very close friends and that is one of the reasons why we always like to talk and have a drink with you after concerts. If
we just had ordinary jobs back home then all our friends would most likely just be from Scotland.
When we have a social gathering back home in Scotland now all
our friends envy us when we talk of our friends from all the countries and the different ways and attitudes to life.
Most importantly having friends from so many nationalities proves
that one day we can have peace in this world with music possibly the catalyst that breaks down the barriers.
On the day that happens we hope that all of you and Beggars
Row are still kicking up the feet because we promise you the biggest party ever !
