After a slow start the room filled up quite nicely. The performers in attendance this week were Tom & Linda Degney, Tom Goodall, Colin Campbell, Mike Whittaker, Richard and Wendy Eastwood, Geoff Hollis, Annie and Bob and two new names to me Andy from Abergele & Molly who is Annie’s sister I think.
Wendy was MC tonight and a good job she made of it. Everyone who wanted to got three songs each. A new duo was formed (Almost Blue) when Andy joined Wendy on his Keyboard with some jazzy sort of numbers. Annie and Bob were then joined by Molly on Andy’s Keyboard for their first two songs. Andy also did a tune called ‘I Feel for You’ which was one of his own compositions. Now talking of Composers, Mike Whittaker and Tom Goodall are now receiving requests for their own songs to be sung. ‘Girl on a Train’ (Mike) and (Another Slug) (Tom).
Tom and Linda were ‘Somewhere on the Road again’ , Richard Eastwood was in ‘A Town like This’, Tom Degney sang ‘The Green Rolling hills of West Virginia, I did Jack Ashton, Annie, Bob & Molly did ‘Blind Willie Mctell’ because someone had been given a Literature prize apparently. Now where was I, oh yes who could forget Colin Campbell’s version of Chuck Berry’s ‘ My Dingaling’ well who could match that and up pops Wendy to finish the night with a big hit by Ketty Lester ‘Love Letters’.
Talking of Lesters’ another one will be back next week to make a more sensible report, I am sure.
All the best & see you all on Friday 21 October 2016.
