As the winter months have been taking hold and the temperature dropping there really hasn't been much of a drop in gigs for us. 

It has been a month of big change. We have farewelled our long term double bassist and dear friend Dwayne with sadness and much nostalgia. Dwayne has been a solid foundation in the sound of White Chapel Jak and a solid foundation for hugs when needed! 

At the same time we have been welcoming our new double bassist Michael White. Michael was thrown straight into the deep end with his first two gigs within 3 days of meeting us for the first time. Michael has been can he play a double bass!! It is with much excitement now that we look forward to the next stage of our musical journey with a new member that has bought a whole new energy to what we do.

Below are a few moments from the past month. There has been a lot of Whanau time with birthdays for some of our family members both young and not so young! 

And then there is the soap that arrived mysteriously in the post one day...well...we'll just let the picture say all it needs to on that one.....
