The guys have let me do the honours of telling you the story. So me, Brakes, Kev and Kevs friend Mario met for pre-drinks at Kevs hostel, we made our way over to the Jazz cafe nice and early and we were sat having a chat on the sofas. Darnell came in and actually noticed Brakes before we even saw him. He came over to say hello and the guys introduced me. Everythig ive heard about Darnell is true, he really is the friendliest guy ever. He then bought us a round of drinks and told us we wernt allowed to nurse them, so we had to down them. We wernt so sure about this idea bcoz it was only 8pm and we had already been drinking since 6pm. I wanted to actually remember the show lol. Darnell then introduced us to a guy called DJ Badger and sat him down with us and told him we were like family lol. Darnell then had to leave for a bit and left us chatting with Badger.

We made our way into the crowd about an hour later waiting for the show and we wernt sure if Darnell would find us or if we would even get to meet Jeff afterwards. So Jeff came up and started the show, he was amazing to say the least, the place was packed full and he had the whole crowd going. About an hour in i get tapped on the shoulder by Kev and i turn around and Darnell is there and grabs my hand and leads me to the stage. So there i was on stage stood next to Jeff taking pictures. Darnell said "you can film if you want" so i did, i was filming little bits and then i stopped for a bit. Darnell said "You want to film this bit", he was right, Jeff did Rock the bells and it was awesome seeing that up close!

So i go back down and Darnell says "I'll make sure you meet him afterwards". A bit later on he gets Kev up, Skills even shouted "Its Kevtastic" to the crowd haha. So Kev filmed and took pictures too. Just as Jeff was playing summertime and finishing the show Darnell calls us up and takes us upstairs. Brakes then got to be a roadie and ended up carrying one of Jeffs cases. So we wait round for a load of other people to get Jeffs signature and we go in last. The guys made me go first and instead of sceaming i go all shy and starstruck and dont know what to say. So i told him he killed it and asked for a signature and picture. Kev then gives Jeff an England football club T Shirt with "The Magnificant 88" on the back.

So we're all just chatting and Kev tells Jeff that Tim your planning on coming here pretty soon and Jeff seems excited about it. Darnell was telling Jeff how im from the site as well and that we've been members for ages. Its hard to remember everything coz it ends up all a blur but it was an amazing night. Heres some pictures, if they work.

Think Julie summed up the evening perfectly. The Set last night was definately amongst the best i've heard Jeff do. He keeps adding to his routines to keep it fresh. His calssic Peter Piper and Rock The Bells routines he's famous for keep getting better and he's trying new things. Here's a video clip i shot when i was up on stage.
