Circus Oz

In 1978 Richard joined Circus Oz as a fire eater/singer/saxophonist with the Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band. It was a mad endeavour with many weird and wonderful people who have stayed friends to this day. On Sunday we had lunch with the Strong man from the original show Jono Hawkes and his lovely partner Sue.
After lunch, we had custard tarts with the bass player from the band Peter Muhleisen at his house just around the corner. I didn't get any photos of he and his partner Ms Sin. and I wish I had because the look on Peter's face as he played his 100 year old upright bass with Richard was sublime.

Next Wednesday there is a Circus Oz 30 year anniversary lunch which we have been lucky enough to be invited to. YIKES what does one wear to such an event. Roll on Wednesday.
