Nick's Klez ..Tango Band.. Wind In The City 

This week there were some familiar a some not so familiar bands and musicians playing music as we took another journey around the globe. Paul Ubana Jones from New Zealand will be coming to our neck of the woods sometime soon. Watch ths space for details.
