There was yet another Birthday this week and this time it was the turn of loyal club supporter Ron Lester celebrating the big day. With posh, specially made cakes and a super spread of sandwiches-pies-rolls and volleyballs etc.
Ron has been an ever-present since first attending the club.
We also welcomed to the club Ann & Mike who traveled from the midlands to be with us and what a talented duo they are.
Mike is a virtuoso of the blues/jazz guitar and possesses a perfect gravelly voice, the opposite of Ann’s smooth cultured pipes.
The wonderful Peter Stevens was with us again and gave us ‘ The Contender’ & ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane’ …..Marvelous!
Our friends Dave King & Derek Smith from Conwy Folk Club popped in with Derek getting the crowd giggling with ‘On Again-On Again-On Again’ in the style of the late, great Jake Thakery.
Dave gave us ‘Kind Hearted Woman’ and Love Machine’ in his own inimitable style.
Annie & ‘Throbbin’ Bob were their usual brilliant best, with Annie’s voice recovered from laryngitis.
We had a guitar medley from ‘Fingers’ Bill Conde and Geoff Hollis gave us ‘Only Remembered‘. Chris ‘B’ did Merry Hell’s ‘The War Between Ourselves.’
Richard & Wendy up next with ‘You’re My Best Friend‘ and Wendy sang superbly, ‘Tonight The War Is Over’.
Tom & Linda refrained from doing any rain dances and the evening came to an end with Peter & Tom on Spoons & Ukelele respectivly.
