At the very end of the show, and quite unpremeditatedly as far as the Palers' Band was concerned, Geoff Whitehorn got up to play!
Gary Shepard on bass, and (unseen) Poul Achton on drums, and Carlo Ponnisi ('Jack') at the Hammond organ. Don Milione
sat at the synth and played with great restraint as well
'Anything you like, mate,' he said to Roland, who suddenly thought of (and called for) Repent Walpurgis. Where have we seen that naval tailcoat before?
Eye-contact on two axes (piano–guitar, bass–drums) as the
unrehearsed ensemble coordinates the final crashing chords.
It went pretty well ... Geoff was on sparkling form and brought the house down.
