Return of Best of the West's 60s Rock Band: Gil Jones and the Summits Reunion Event

Return of ‘Best of the West’s’ 60s Rock Band: Gil Jones and The Summits Reunion Event

Gil Jones and The Summits are reuniting after over 50 years for an anniversary “open gig event” combined with band member and rhythm guitarist, Chris Verney’s, 70th birthday bash! Gil and The Summits originate from Barnstaple and in the 60s were rated ‘Best of the West’.

Gil Jones and The Summits will be performing of course at the reunion, with probably 4 of the 5 original members; bassist, John Sweet, now resides in New Zealand. Expect to hear the music of The Shadows, Cliff, Elvis, Billy Fury, Eddie Cochran, and many more tributes to other 60s classics! Other local musicians will be attending; there will be disco support and an ‘open mike’ talent session allowing for a full range of melodic entertainment.

There will be a late bar, buffet, prize raffle, Charity draw, auction of Summits signed photos, and memorabilia. Bring along your old 45/33 rpm Vinyl Records for an exchange and mart, and a ‘hear them again session’. A special preview DVD presentation is also in store of the forthcoming book ‘The Rock and Rolling Years of the 1960s in North Devon’, by local author Pat Barrow. All proceeds will go to local charities including the Devon Air Ambulance Trust. Chris says, “This night is sure to be a walk down memory lane, it is not to be missed!”

This blast from the past evening will take place on Friday 15th August at the Ex-Service and Social Club (Former Royal British Legion Club), St Georges Road, Barnstaple from 7:30pm till Midnight. £12.50 admission includes buffet supper and free draw entry ticket.

If you’re a musician who would like to be on the bill,  or you would like to buy your advance tickets  you can contact Chris Verney on 01271 343377.

Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director of Devon air Ambulance Trust said, “We would like to thank Chris and the rest of Gil Jones and The Summits for raising funds for the Charity at such a lively event. We encourage anyone who loves the music of the 60s to attend and support these musicians who are giving back to the Devon community”.

So you might be freaking out about your upcoming first belly dancing performance. Instead, do a proof print first, using a black and white ink on plain paper, or change your printer setting to draft or economy and do the proof print this way. Open up the Slide Grasp (Watch tab> Presentation Views group> Slide Grasp). After you put on your favorite little girls hair accessories there is no guarantee that it will not slip off after half an hour.
