weel done !  :clap
great tone, great playing, great singing

and Romeo played with a Tricone  :thumbsup, most likely the one Mark used on the original recording imho

Love the fact that you noticed that I use a Tricone. I absolutely love it! And think it sounds much more like the original recording than the Style O :)

Thought I should drop by another  version of Romeo And Juliet that we did a couple of weeks ago. We have also made a new Facebook site for this tribute that we now call “Local Heroes”. Also planning several gigs for next year with this band. This is fun!

Many thanks Tobben - it was very enjoyable.  R&J is  one of my favourite DS songs btw!    Also it was really nice to see the couples dancing!   :)

Why did you decide to do another version of R&J btw?

Listened once more to R&J and SHS. You know, a good index for cover bands is the cringe factor. With this one: zero. Now we want Sultans and Calling Elvis.

They have a strange sound on this one (telegraph) or maybe it's due to the vibrato too marked
