    Not the same band, as far as I can tell. The band I played with had an instrument called a tubophone.

    We ALWAYS go via the Bay of Biscay - and it's invariably the worst part of the trip.

    I've got a whole three hours, so a meetup in town would be fun. A friend of mine recommended a pub called the Standing Order. He's the other saxo on this cruise. Maybe the three of us?

    Not on duty at the time, but they did have a baby grand with a mic on it. A spinet upright would have been cool - I would have checked for the letters of transit under the lid!

    Thanks, Cash.

    We're enroute to Casablanca ATM. Everyone I've talked to says it's nothing to write home about, but as a huge fan of the movie, I've always wanted to go there.
