To all our friends and fans,

 

It is with much sadness that we have decided to end The Ballina Whalers. The past year and a half since we started back singing together has been a rollercoaster with some wonderful highs and some difficult lows. After much soul searching we realised that we were pulling in different directions, and as any good sailor knows, that gets you nowhere fast. So we have decided the best and healthiest thing we can do is to move forward as individuals, proud of what we achieved together and with happy memories of all the good times. 

 

Thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way, to all the wonderful musicians and singers who have shared their love of the music with us, everyone who has booked us to come and sing, to our manager over this last year, Mick Harding, and most of all to you guys  - all our friends and fans who have carried us with you, sung along, and put the wind in our sails. If this is anyone’s music, it’s yours. 

 

Here’s to fair winds and fresh adventures,

 

Pete, Sam & Jamie
