Is That Kenny Rogers? …. 25th. July.

140725-1587As the members were wending their way into the clubroom I was chatting to the football clubs M.D. when he did a quick head-turn toward them and uttered ”Is that Kenny Rogers?’  staring at our Vince Mehlin manipulating his guitar case up the stairs, ”Yes I replied, but we’ve only got him for the one night” and Dolly couldn’t make it”.

The numbers were down a bit from the previous meet, due to Sir Tom Jones’ performance in Colwyn Bay, but as usual we had a an enjoyable time helped along by Chris & Jayne’s perilous roof and garden shed adventure, hilarious!

We had Kevin – Wendy – Tony – George -Bam – Vince –  Geoff – and Chris to provide the music and all kept in order by M.C. Neal.

Singers night next week, but we do have some exciting guest nights lined up which will be published shortly.

Soggy Bottoms 4th. July.

A very lively night with the ‘Soggy Bottom Boys’  paying us a visit and  the popular voice of  Tony Grant given an extended set by M.C. Tex Mealey. The Soggy boy’s were their usual ebullient selves singing a range of well known ditties which got the crowd feet stomping and table tapping in accompaniment.

The very fine voice of  Tony was also well received and sounding even better with his Gibson alongside,  then the  wonderful Elaine Walker also showed what a fine singer she is and how lucky we are to have such diverse talent attending the club.

With Annie & Bob, Vin, Kevin, George & Bam also on show, we were all sent away happy and some of us, with our own soggy bottoms, due to the late heavy showers at hometime.

The Longest Night – 20th. June.

DCP_0863Tonight was the penultimate night to the longest day of the year and although the numbers were down, again due to World cup football, Sunny weather, folk festivals and holidays etc.  we still had a good evening and welcomed to the club the very talented Eric, who effortless entertained with his distinctive voice and cultured guitar style.

We had to battle with the bright evening sunshine filtering through the doorway and erect a blind to stop Tracey getting heat-stroke on the reception desk.

Keith turned up in his plum coloured chinos and fine baritone voice  getting the audience singing along to his sea shanties. Left hander Brian was up next and I particularly liked his version of  ‘Candle in the Wind’,  Brandon again improves every time he performs and George was his usual ‘off the wall’ self.  Geoff executed his ‘Happy Hour’ with aplomb.  Matt came along to sing a few songs, but apparently did a David Copperfield impression and vanished completely.

The evening was professionally compèred by The Hairy Photographer  who also managed to squeeze in a few numbers.    Hopefully all the wanderers will be back next Friday.

6th. June – A Milestone Birthday.

2014-06-06 22.28.37Long time member Kevin Wardman was enjoying a special birthday this week and the club presented him a cake and bottle of Vin Rouge to celebrate.

Kevin (Mr Consistency) has been entertaining the club since the far off days at ‘The Bee’ and is without doubt one of it’s most popular members, Happy Birthday Kevin.

Also we had ‘newbey’ Stephen popping in from Ruthin, Wendy sang a trilogy homage to the world wars to mark D-Day they were followed by Tom & Linda, Richard, Martin on his Takamine and M.C. Chris remarked “One day we may get a guy called Takamine playing a Martin“, Young Brandon next, who also won the raffle bottle, Tony Grant who was peeved at not attending last week on his birthday, therefore surrendering his right to a cake.

But it was Linda that brought the house down with her Kazoo dexterity on Gerry Rafferty’s Baker Street, supported by Tom& Richard….Brilliant! M.C. Chris ‘B’ saying now we know why it’s known as  ‘The Happy Club’.

Singer’s Night 30th May

penniThis week saw another good mix for a singer’s night.  Nice to see Penni and Elaine visiting us from Denbigh and Llansanan, joining half a dozen or so of the regulars.

And Stuart too,  from Caerwys, who treated us to a couple of lovely acapella numbers, and promised to bring along more choir members.

Neil was nursing sore nodules so Chris stepped up to act as M.C. for the evening, unfortunately I think they both buy their joke books from the same shop.

A Raven good night at the club

RavenFriday 23rd of May:

Another good turnout on Friday considering the miserable wet weather and with at least a dozen members missing due to festivals, holidays and sick-notes.

With the ever popular ‘Raven’ popping in to give us a couple of super spots it was an entertaining night in more ways than one.

While all were warm dry and cosy in the club room, I was getting soaked in the cellar whilst changing a beer barrel, I inadvertently unhooked a waist water pipe above my head and reaped the messy rewards from on high, not nice.

But also with Raven we had Annie & Bob – Vinny – Bam – Kevin – Wee Willy – Linda & Tom – Richard – Wendy – Chris B. and, new to the club, Bob Lawson who braved the weather all the way from Birkenhead.

The night was compered amusingly by George in place of Neil.  So nice to enjoy the relaxed happy atmosphere and never before have I heard such realistic cockerels, dogs and howling wolves to accompany Ravens Little Red Rooster, a brilliant finish to another thoroughly enjoyable evening.
