The cost of the evening was £25 per head included a welcome drink, the hot-pot meal and all recording services. Neon Studios included a licensed cash bar, “Humbuckers” which was open during the meal and session.

Musicians among ABC members were encouraged to bring an instrument to make for a lively session later in the evening. To which Neil Ramone and Jonathan Lees took full advantage of, to rapturous applause by all.
