Seeking Unionists With Blues
I'm just wondering if there is anyone in the union movement who would be interested in forming a band. More, a blues band.
I feel this would be a great way to involve members i campaigns etc, and have some real input to a campaign, union function or anything else that has a union flavour where some music could help!!
I have been a musician for the past 15 years and have performed both live and recorded.
If this could placed in the next news letter, I would be very grateful.
I have been a union member for past 8 years in the ASU and LHMU and am a delegate in both unions.
My email is mailto:[email protected] and my phone number is wk(03) 9241 7313 and at home on (03) 9528 5770
Thank you for your time,
