Having missed out on a Convention last year, we’ve got a lot to feature this year!!  

From Dick Clark videos from the 1950’s through to Duane’s amazing set at Glastonbury, we’re going to set out to cover 50+ years of twang in a single afternoon; we’ll have some never-before seen clips from Duane’s “Greystones” concert and from the “Holmfirth 2012” gig (but I warn you now – this one is loud!!!!).  And do watch out for that “Sneaky Snake”, especially if you are drinking “Root Beer”).  

Malcolm & Julian will be there, manning the Circle store, so remember to bring lots of money with you.  The Twang Gang will be on hand to bring us their interpretations of Duane’s classic recordings (featuring as always a mix of Duane's million sellers plus tracks that Duane himself has almost certainly never played live on stage) – Rod, Philip, Spence and Martin will all be there, but maybe there will be a new face or two this year.  As well as the Twang Gang set, Philip and Spence are working on an acoustic set, which always adds an extra dimension to the Convention.  

As always, we will be featuring a Master-Mind Quiz which will be very easy (well, it’s easy for me because I set the questions so I know all the answers!!), with prizes including exclusive tour memorabilia and there will be some great raffle prizes including tour back-stage passes.  Also, I’ll be sure to bring you up-to-date with all the projects that are lined up for the next few months.

To get you into “ticket-buying mode”, here’s a couple of photos from the 2011 Convention:-

Tickets will be available on the door, but to save time why not buy your tickets in advance from DECUK, P.O. Box 203, Sheffield S1 1XU (if ever you buy a ticket in advance but then find you can’t make it on the day, we’ll always send you a full refund of the ticket price).

You know you can’t afford to miss it, so Hey Everybody, Come Along If You Can!!
