Twas brillig, and the slithy toves, did gyre and gimble in the wabe: all mimsy were the borogroves, and the mome roths outgrabe.“Beware the Jabberwock, my son, the jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware theJubjub bird, and shun the frumious Bandersnatch!”…..
As you have probably guessed, local group Jabberwocky visited us tonight,
Ian,Gill, Gilly and Mick visit and entertain us every couple of months or so.
Another local duo that visit us, Dawn and Allan.
Also happened to visit on the same night! Finished their first spot with a lovely version of Run Away with Me.
Wendy had us all crying singing about Hobo Billy’s Last Ride, (at least no one died in Geoff’s songs!).
Wendy sang another Tania Tucker song, (no one died this time) and they finished with Doctor Hooks, “Who,s going to water my plants” etc.
Jabberwocky finished the first half.
He took his vorpal sword in hand, long time the manxome foe he sought- So rested he by the tumtum tree, And stood a while in Thought…
With the songs I Never New Love before, Van Morrison’s Moon Dance and Handbags and Glad Rags.
We then had the raffle…
Kevin opened the second half, reminding us that Xmas is just around the corner with his second Xmas song of the year Xmas in New York, his first last week was Xmas in Washington, Where will it be next week? (answers please on a post card or sealed envelope to…)
and started with Killing me softly, followed by a Mark Knoppler song, The Next Time I,m in Town, and finishing with waiting for the times to get better.
Richard, accompanied by Mick, Alan and Tom, Were “Living On Tulsa Time”
Mike sang his own lovely poignant song, She Was Only 17
John Taylor then sang for us a really good song about the miners strike in Barnsley.
Colin gave us You Never can Tell, By Chuck Berry, Dawn and Alan came back,
And gave us four more songs.
followed by Richard and Wendy, Who sang Crying Time and I wish it would Rain.
And To Finish…
And as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tuggley wood, and burbled as it came.
Who gave us four more songs, Aretha Franklin’s Change, Good thing, Robert Johnson’s Sweet Home Chicago, and to finish Jesse Jays Price Tab
One two! One Two! And through and through. The Vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head, He went galumping back.
Don’t forget, next week is guest night, be early!!!
