Phil, Congratulations on staging a classic, even
historic, Picket night. My wife and my friends agreed it was one of the best
shows they'd ever seen. I hope it goes some way to helping the Picket's
fortunes. Best regards, Paul.
"Hi Phil, A big thank you for the other night , it was
excellent and a real privilege to have seen that. I think everyone had a great
time, I know we all did. The place was looking great too and seems to be coming
together quite well now. All the best fella and see you soon. Viva el Picket.
"Dear Phil, Brilliant evening at the Picket last Thursday.
Steve and I and our friends Helen and Trevor agreed it was the sort of thing
we're alive for
"Phil, thank you for the Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint
show last night, it was fantastic. It was very exciting to see the whole
10-piece band play in such intimate surroundings. Could you please send me a
couple of tickets as keepsakes as couldn't get hold of them last night- or any
posters! Thank you. Congratulations and all power to the New Picket wishing you
all success for the future". Neil Jones, Fazeley, Staffordshire.
"Hello Phil, Just wanted to drop you a line to say a
thousand thank yous for last night. My wife & me are HUGE Costello fans;
we've seen him about 30something times over the years in a variety of places.
But last night was definitely one of the best ever! Haven't been that close to
the front for years. The band were absolutely fantastic & Elvis & Allen
seemed to be really enjoying themselves as well. Once again, thank you very
much for the tickets, and in the unlikely event that you ever need a
rock'n'roll / soul covers band, then give us a shout. By the way, do you have
any of those fancy invites / tickets left? If you have any left over, we'd love
to have a couple as souvenirs. All the best, Chris & Annie Bounds".
"Hello Phil yes it truly was a very special occasion
I have been humming Alison in my head all day
hope it raised a good sum
for the Picket and thanks very much". Fiona"
"Best gig I've been to in years Phil. Many
congratulations". Mick Ord.
"Great gig last night hope the Beatles Shop gifts went down
well with the band", Stephen Bailey.
"Hi Phil, I'd just like to congratulate you on putting on
such an amazing gig at The Picket last night. Mr Costello was truly on top
form, and Allen Toussaint has just gained a big fan ... I'm off to buy all his
records It's gigs like that, that make me realised how important the spirit of
The Picket is. Hopefully there will always be a Picket venue in Liverpool. It
was a shame we couldnt keep hold of our tickets just to prove we were at
such a great gig. Just thought I'd ask on behalf of my friends and myself if
there is any way we can get the tickets back? Cheers Phil". Colin Creed.
"Just a quick mail to say what a brilliant gig it was last
night, hope all goes well for the future and hope to be back in the Picket soon
Cheers" John Joynt and the Huyton Fatties.
"Thanks so much for last night it was amazing!" Gill
