The pictures on this page, by Terry Hapgood of The Surrey Advertiser, were taken on Tuesday 6 September at Gary's house, where GB and the four Ms had gathered for the first of five days' rehearsal.
Left to right in the upper picture are (as if you didn't know already) Gary Brooker, piano and voice; Mark Brzezicki, percussion; Matt Pegg, bass; Mick Grabham, guitar; Matthew Fisher, Hammond organ.
Diane Rolph reports that the band are in fine form … 'So great to hear that sound again.' … and that they are gathering next week with the addition of guest guitarist, Geoff Whitehorn.
