29th August - Back at Greenwich Market!

Clipping from the August issue of Greenwich Visitor newspaper.

We’re excited to be playing at Park It In The Market again. Last month’s event was great fun – we’re sure this one will be even better! You’ll find us outside the Admiral Hardy pub this time.

Sax player wanted

19 Apr

Ronnie Ripple & The Ripchords are looking for a sax player to join our high energy rockabilly/rock’n’roll/skiffle band. If you’re interested, have some experience of playing in a band, and can rehearse with us in East Greenwich on a Monday evening on a reasonably regular basis, then get in touch! We’ve played pub gigs, private parties and community festivals, and are looking to do at least a gig a month, around south east London and surrounding areas. We’re looking for someone who can play with a bit of swing, play some riffs and take some solos; Big Joe Turner, JD Mcpherson, Elvis, Cash, Cochran, etc, etc.

To find out more, call Neil on 07545 281 009 (after 5pm), or email: neilclasper [ at ]
