Hard to believe I have been playing professional gigs for 30 years, but it's true - and quite a few at that. I always took notes, and now i can offer you this free PDF file of every show I have played from 1986 until the end of 2016. All of the solo sets, the duets, various bands and jam sessions. A lot of fun! Have a look. You may be mentioned in there somewhere!
