Ken Copsey…..I remember seeing Roger Carey playing that bass back in the day. It always amazed me the biggest bloke playing fantastically on the smallest bass. Seeing this picture now allows me to identify it as a left handed Burns Sonic bass strung for right handed playing. I now own one myself but needless to say I can’t play it to Rogers standard!

Sarah Harvey….The Christmas Fancy Dress Ball was where I believe Hat Trick played two gigs in one evening….the first was at The Kings Head in the Old Town and later on in the evening at Ore centre. I seem to remember the band dressing up as Santa Claus that night….. my fancy dress nowadays would be rather different!
