Music

When we were the Ranters Dance Band our fee was ten shillings each and 10/- for petrol, (2.50 in today's money for the whole band!) and I remember that we played regularly in Bournemouth for this princely sum. Then one night the organiser said "We've made enough money from your dances to hire the Ranchers (they were a top band charging probably ten times as much as us) and we were gutted. However as the years went by we became very good friends with the Ranchers and played many festivals and shows together. This tune were given to me by their leader Bryan Willcocks, as a bit of a test.
