I thought that I had walked into the wrong club last Friday,
there were not many seats left. and several new faces, as the summer ends and holidays finish, we start to get a full club again. (and where else can you get a good nights entertainment for £1.50!) . When I arrived I thought we had a new young female country and western vocalist, then I realized that it was a tanned Wendy, just back from her holidays, (Richard was tanned too!)
Jim the Fiddler was next…
who gave us A Life on the Ocean Waves, Followed by a Scottish tune.
We then had a newcomer to the club, Jane from Bethesda.,
She gave us a couple of Christy Moore songs, finishing with Nancy Spain. Lets all hope that we see her again soon.
Linda and Tom came next.
Tom had his frying pan with him, so Linda took the advantage and sang Ring the Bell.
she finished with Four Wheel Drives My Blue Ridge Mountain Girl.
It was time for the combined talents of Rhyl an Ruthin, with the Tom, Dick, Harry, John and Raphael Band…
as they were setting up, Harry lowered the tone of the evening by asking a Lancashire riddle, from when he was a wee lad, ‘ whats little and wrinkled, and hangs out your underpants’ We must be thick in Rhyl, no one got it write, its your granny.
It was then time for the Raffle.
Which was won by a very nice man from Carmel, a nice looking bottle of Merlot.
Who have recently got together and formed a duo. Helen is a brilliant double bassist, and Russell an excellent guitarist and singer, I think he must be saving up for a new guitar, as he said the one he was using was made in 1941!
Russel is a great friend of Toms, who invited him to visit Rhyl, as they are from the Frodsham /Chester area. Lets hope Tom can get them to come again.
John Taylor came back on.
And have a hilariously funny rendition of my first day at the pit. what makes it so fantastically funny is Johns accent and delivery, I can’t imagine anyone being able to do it any better.
Mike Whitiker Finished of with one of his own, Underneath the Waterfall, Colin with streets of London, Jane with a song about birth control and beer…. Jim fiddled a slow air, Wild Rose of the Mountain, and Linda and Tom Another Lonesome Morning.
time for the finale,
Tom Dick, Harry, John and Raphael came back on to sing us out with Jerry Rafferty,s Baker Street, what a fantastic end to my bottle of wine, it vibrated of the table and fell on the floor, managing to hit the table leg on the way down. Other than that a really good night
See you all in 2 weeks, I,m having a week off.
