For those of you that don't know Ray Jones used to be the bass drummer before I came along. Even after retiring from the band due to ill health Ray's never been far away though - often a familiar face at both our practices and engagements.
I've had a quick look back through the photo archives for the band and I've found evidence of Ray being in the band as early as 1976 where he used to play the tenor and as late as 2007 on the bass (see the pictures below).
On behalf of the band I'd just like to offer Ray our thanks for his recent donation of $100 to the band.
Thanks very much Ray, and remember you're always welcome to come along and have a hit with us (I'll even hold the drum for you).
