I may have already mentioned this, but Saturday's 'Jamstand' event was a resounding success. No less than seven bands performed at the concert which was arranged by Jack Baldus. Jack is just 19 years old, has been playing music for the best part of his life and is currently reading music at Leeds University. He plays in a brilliant jazz outfit called TH3 with two of his uni friends, Elgan Rees, on drums and Josh Ingham on bass. Saturday was Josh's debut as a sound man and he did a pretty good job.

Jack has been rehearsing with local band 'Totem Pole' since last May and thought it would be a great idea to put on a concert at the Bandstand, enlisting the help of lots of local musicians who were willing to perform there for free, for the people of Ross and its visitors to enjoy. Things weren't quite that straight forward however, as amplified music is not included in the Town Council's current licence.

Undaunted by this minor detail however, Jack applied to Herefordshire Council for a Temporary Event Notice, then awaited their response. His application was successful, so plans for the concert surged ahead, notifying as many as possible of the date, including Wyenot News. We were delighted at the news.

On the day itself, Jack was a little nervous, saying, 'What if it all goes wrong? Everyone will think I'm an idiot!' or words to that effect. The look on his face at the end of the evening was priceless. All went well and he knew it. Tina went to talk to Jack on Tuesday. He was extremely happy that the day was a success and he mentioned plans for further concerts in the not too distant future.

You need not have worried Jack. It all went brilliantly and thank you and your friends for putting on the concert that Ross needed.

Jack would like to thank everybody who took part in and helped organize the 'Jamstand' event as well as Brandon Tool Hire, for the loan of a generator and Bradford Kemps for the second generator and floodlights.
