Hi Guy's, does anyone know what has happened to the Australian site?  It looks like someone forget to pay the rent!  In all seriousness is that it closed down?  Cheers Russell Continue

 Hi Guys,,,,, well guess what???? I finally got the DVD together from the CGB workshop and concert we held in Tullebudgera back in Sept 2012. It landed in my lap last Friday almost two 2 years after the event to the very day.... Don't ask me why it took so long, it's a long story , almost two years long, but it's here now and it's shaking it's booty with bells on. First off I'd love to get some complimentary copies out to Gary (Martin),Troy (Peirce), Penny (Nelson), Furry (Johnson) and Mike (Gregory). Can you post or message your Mailing addresses and i'll post you out the DVD. Check the credits you're all there. It's called Soulman O'Gaia : Cigar Box Blues. Woohoo!! Soul :-)

What a pleasure it was to meet the charming (and very talented!) Soulman O'Gaia today.

Even got to show him my first build!
