I introduced Giraffe Because to Whiskey Moon Face and Jamboree, they were invited to play the following week. Their set was very successful, the audience loved it and they were invited to perform on the radio after the show.

I suggested that Giraffe Because should play in scootercaffe, a great homely bar in Waterloo. They were invited and have been playing regularly since, I often go to hear them and the place now has a vibrant atmosphere and more visitors thanks to the live music.
