Richard and Tom started proceedings tonight with ‘The City of New Orleans’, ‘He was a Friend of Mine’ and ‘The Games People Play.’ Richard with Wendy followed singing ‘Walk Tall’ but Richard left his Val Doonican’s Jumper at home. ‘Distant Drums’ and ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’ followed. Wendy went all ‘Crazy’ and then did ‘Our Town’ and ‘Speed of the Sound of Loneliness’ making a very good start to the evening.
Linda and Tom only did one song about ‘the Irish rain’ and ‘Don’t you Believe’ and a good choice of ‘Waiting for the Times to Get Better’ in view of the Referendum result last night. Terry was next and got very warm with ‘Old Flames’ and continued with ‘Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain’ ‘Long Black Veil.’ I started off with ‘Saving a Place,’ ‘What’s the use of Wings,’ ‘Windy Harbour’ and Keith Marsden’s song about a Funeral. Mike Whittaker sang his own song ‘Don’t Ever Change’ one of my favourites by Mike, he also did a cover (doesn’t happen very often) of ‘Norwegian Wood.’
Tom Degney finished the night with two songs ‘Sally’ and ‘Dr Jazz’.
All in all there were twenty eight people in the Club eight of which were performers.
A good night was had by all.
Don’t forget there is NO Club next week. We shall reconvene on 8th July 2016.
All the Best. Geoff
