G’day from Steve,

Looking back

In 1973 I did my first ever public performance in this church. The old Presbyterian Church in the small town of Kangaroo Ground, Victoria.  My mate Geoff Bentley and I had formed a group with 4 girls from the Wycliffe Bible Translators base. We called the band “Freedom” which in hindsight was not a real good name as Geoff and I never got a word in!  A local Christian school teacher, Gordon Mullen patiently taught us all guitar lessons on Tuesday afternoons and encouraged us to start performing together. So it all started here at the ol “Pressy” church.  I hope to return there later this year and do a Thanksgiving concert. Driving by the church this weekend brought back many cherished memories.
