Vale Rex Stokes

Rex Stokes is now at peace after a six month struggle with cancer. A dozen members represented SPUKES at his funeral by playing and singing ‘You Are My Sunshine’ at the service.

The making of ‘Two’

The end result The final result is very pleasing. It has a homespun authentic and genuine feel about it. The video images of our players during the recording definitely warm the heart. Time will prove this to be a good song, one that people will want to sing and play....

Everyone's welcome!
