Club night 7th February 18

February 08, 2018

Welcome one and all to the blog.

Good to see you all after only one week. A good crowd with some excellent music. It was a guitar fest tonight with 13 guitars on display with two mandolins coming up the rear so to speak. No Carsick tonight who does a back up list as to what people play ,so ,correct any errors I make at the end of the blog.

Players had four songs this evening, three in the first half and one in the second. Here's a flavour of the evening.

The graveyard slot was mine this week and Picture of you was my choice of ditty.

Herbie was next up and gave us a bit of the Monkees , Chuck Berry and The Beatles all delivered in that Herbie kind of way.

The Silver Fox was at it again with his relaxed fingerstyle and we had  True love ways (practising for the Buddy Holly night at Ruskin House this Saturday). We also had Tequela Sunset among others.

Don plus his tasty Seebring guitar gave us a good mix  with 'I wouldn't change youu for the world' and 'Little sister which I really enjoyed.

Up leapt Eddy brimming with enthusiasm and some tasty chords to boot. We had 'My Blue Heaven, and Hard Times . Felt like a Lime Meadow Karaoke.

Geoff crooned his way through 'Most Beautiful Girl in the World' and what a Wonderful World to name a couple in a nostalgia inducing set.

Aidan plus voice minus Vicky gave us the unusually named 1,000's are sailing and 'There's a reason for leaving. Myself and The Bard joined Aidan for The Oyster Girl and Swallowtails medley.

DCC &T were in fine fettle and 'Who's been talking' by Howling Wolf was a cracker and we all sang along to 'Dance the Night Away'. Extra guitar added a nice touch to the overall sound.

Electric Graham gave us 'Running Down a Dream and 5 Years. Graham is a big fan of Bowie and it shows.

Paul plus trusty nylon string gave us 'Silly love Songs''plus audience participation ,as well as the old favourite 'Honey'

The Bard of Beddington finished off the first half and commenced the second with his usual selection of self penned ditties. Among others we had a song about Bananas(the first and last of the evening) and 'She said' which included audience participation and a laugh or two.

The second half was an eclectic mix including Someone who was sixteen, Agony, Woodcutters, Joni Mitchell the Cha Cha Cha , Mary's arms and plenty more

There were two self penners tonight:

The Bard
