Old Friends from Ocean Village

L-R: Jaime, Me & Steve @ Valery’s bar, Mojacar Playa

About 10 years ago, I was a little disillusioned with life in bands, and bass playing in particular, and embarked on just over two years aboard a ship called Ocean Village.  This ship was aptly named, as it really was like a village, full of friends who sailed the oceans together, entertaining their audiences, and probably more to the point , each other!  I made great friends on there, fortunate to be part of the ‘first wave’ of entertainers’ as the ship was launched, including Tony Stevens, Jaki Graham, Rachel Lane, Zac Bauman, and many, many more. On that ship was a band called Jet Set, who were on there for the duration, resident in the main nightclub, The Marquee.  I worked on the ship as a solo performer, and through these guys, fell in love with fronting a band and playing bass again.  Jet Set was run by Jaime Caswell and featured Steve Edwards on bass, and when they suggested I do a short set with them, Steve switching to second guitar, I jumped at it. If I remember well, we played All Right Now, Hip to be Square, Long train Running and  Another Brick in the Wall, amongst others.

Our home from home: MV Ocean Village

Although its been around 8 years since I’ve seen these guys, the friends I made on Ocean Village are friends for life, so I was over the moon when I got a message from Steve saying he and Jaime were in Mojacar (where I live) and did I want to meet up!?   Damn right!

It was very cool to catch up with the guys again, and it hardly seems possible that so many years have passed. What’s really cool is, we’re doing a show in the UK in September where Jaime’s band are resident, so we’ll get to do it all over again (though probably without the sunshine)

A big shout out to all the entertainers, cast and crew who made 2 years of my professional life some of the happiest!

See more, do more be more, Kev Moore  (The Nice guy of Rock)  🙂
