1974 Veron Kinkade

This piece of work again came from our relationship with the 11:59 group. Their lead guitarist, Peter Poyser, invited me to session on guitar for an album that Veron recorded in Eastbourne. Phil ("Pip") Hillsden also played guitar and Margie and Sally sang backing vocals and doo-wops.Veron was, I think, West Indian and an evangelist with the Assemblies of God. He wrote his own material, sang and played guitar.

1980 Lazurus

A musical developed as a collaberative effort by many Basingstoke Community Church members after an idea from Judy Penketh. I wrote the music and directed the band.

Jimmy Owens' significant musical.
Through our links with John and Ros Harding, leaders of the 11:59 group, we got to hear of auditions at Holy Trinity. Brompton, for this musical. Several of us attended and were accepted onto the cast. There was a gruelling rehearsal schedule and a nationwide tour with Pat Boone.

1975 Yesterday, Today, Forever


As alluded to previously, during the life of "His Way" we came across, and worked with, another Christian band from the villages close to Thame and Aylesbury. The band was called "11:59". We even did a Dutch TV program with them. After they felt God asking them to disband the group and do a new thing I got an invitation out of the blue to audition to play guitar in their major project called...
