Saturday 28 January 2017, Perkins Street Market, Alexandra

Saturday morning saw us up early again to set up at the Alexandra on Perkins Market, where we played several sets while also running the fund-raising market stall. Unfortunately, given the Australia Day long-weekend timing, there were not many other stall holders at the market, but we sold a bit of merchandise (including many Recovery CDs) and had lots of interested audience members for each set who stayed and asked questions afterwards. We had a special guest player this weekend in the shape of Lennox Jordan, who had come to Melbourne to play with the Melbourne Ska Orchestra, and took the opportunity to come to Taggerty to tune some of our pans, and play with us on Saturday morning before we bundled him onto the bus to Melbourne to meet up with the MSO.
