New Logo!

The Band have decided on a new logo. This logo represents that the band is made up from people from various ages, communities and musical experience, that none of us are perfect (hence the blurry edges) but that we are all centred around music.

Many thanks to Donna Rowan Gold for producing our new logo – watch out for it at a concert near you!
