We started a resident band, Devils Den, made up of friends of long standing:- Ray Tassie, (Mandolin) Richard Hook, (Guitar) Dave Smith, (Guitar) and Mike Flood, (Bass). All have been in bands since the late 50’s early 60’s, The Hickory Nuts, The Folkvendors, Tamarisk, Plastic Bukitt, Wild Oats, and Deep River to mention a few. During the 90’s other things took priority and enthusiasm slipped. There have been a few changes due to illness and house moves. A new line up and a change of name – The Grass Hoppers, Ray Tassie, (Mandolin) Mike Flood, (Bass) Ges Blackmore, (Guitar) and Adrian 'Eddie' Greene, (Banjo). As from November 2010 the resident band will be called Alive & Picking this is the stage we are at now learning as we go along, playing for fun and enjoyment and hoping others are enjoying it to.
