DUANE EDDY CIRCLE ANNUAL CONVENTION

NEXT ONLINE CONVENTION CONFIRMED FOR SUNDAY MAY 30 2021 AT 16:00 (UK TIME)

THE 3rd WORLD-WIDE ONLINE DUANE EDDY CIRCLE CONVENTION (and our 43rd convention since 1978 )
Sunday May 30th @ 4.00pm UK time 17.00 European Time/ 8.00-noon US Time/ Antisocial time “down under”

We had a great time at our 2nd Virtual Convention back in November – it was great to see so many “old faces” from the 1st Convention, plus several new faces.

Duane got us off to a brilliant start with GHOSTRIDER from Nashville TV and then we went on to a fascinating clip of the making of “Broken Arrow” – and a little later it was back to film music with the soundtrack of “Waiting For A Miracle”. Bob & Gene Berryhill joined us and treated us to a neat version of “Point Panic”. Later on Jim Grant introduced us to some unreleased tracks – and you could hear a pin drop while they were played!! And just as Duane does, we played out to REBEL ‘ROUSER recorded at the Musicians Hall of Fame & featuring Corki!!! 

On May 30th we will be doing it all over again, but with some new exciting additions!! Like last time, we will split the next on-line Convention into 2 sections so we all have time for a break and we will be featuring plenty of rare video of Duane, including an unseen clip from Duane’s pre-Glastonbury gig at The Greystones in Sheffield. Philip Pell will compare Duane’s new Gretsch 6-string Bass Guitar to the Danelectro guitars. Arthur Moir will be presenting a live version of his “oddities”. Jim Grant is coordinating with Duane to present some exclusive material. We will take a look back at Convention 2009 with “High Noon” – featuring the Twang Gang along with Emma Robbins & Rita Campbell, bringing their own very special “magic” to the tune. This time round, we will feature both a MasterMind Quiz and a Raffle so when you sign up, you will be allocated a raffle number and Anne Moir will draw the winning tickets for us;  a list of prizes will be in the next newsletter.
IMPORTANT To secure an invite for our third on-line Duane Eddy Circle Convention, please send an e-mail to us at decmay21@gmail.com
You do not need to be a member – and it is free. Please note that this address is different from the one we used for previous Conventions. You must email this new address to get access to the Convention. Even if you attended the previous on-line Conventions you must register for this one. 

Looking forward to “seeing you” on May 30th.
