Club Night 16th September 2016

 

dscf1931

A lot of first class entertainment this week,

As well as our regular players and singers that come most weeks, Ann, Bob, Vin and Andy came to visit. Also making a welcome appearance from Ruthin club, were Chris and Jayne Birchall, from the Ruthin Club. Anyone who has not visited Ruthin club should give it a try, a lot of the singers and members at Rhyl also go to Ruthin, on a Thursday night, supporting both clubs. Its hosted by Chris and Jayne at the Feathers, and like at Rhyl, you will always be made welcome.

When we arrived, a little late as usual, we had sadly  missed the first half of Vins  spot, and next on was Terry, who started with a John Gorka song about getting old, and finished with the  Graeme  Nash song Teach Your Children Well.

Now for something completely different….as we used to say in the 70s. Andy, a brilliant pianist, who in the past we have heard accompanying Vin, has been doing some Jaz type numbers with Wendy, and we got to see them perform Almost Blue, and the Ella Fitzgerald song To be saying Goodbye. Wendy was dressed for the part, as you can see in the pictures.

Well, it was Toms Birthday,

So When he requested Vin to do his monologue, about a mid-European plumber, named Fred,  Frank, or Fritz, (can’t quite remember which) , everyone was in stitches laughing. It was even funnier than Niels Jokes!
