Club night 5/12/18

December 06, 2018

Welcome one and all to the blog. Nearly 50 of you tonight with good music to boot. We had 17 acts and 24 performers so we were down to two songs a piece to get everybody on. Here's a flavour of the evening .

Diamond Neil was in the graveyard slot this evening and gave us two songs written by a friend (Dave Edgington) in the 70's. Heratige and Thoughts,

Rory and Sue (on keyboards) made a welcome return with one of Rory's own, the Bartender followed by the 'The Boxer with lashings of Lie de Lies.

Aidan and Vicky were up next joined by Dave on keyboards and Alex on poor guitar.We hadn't had a keyboard for ages then two come along at once. They slipped an early xmas song in and the bawdy Fairytale of New York.

(I can't remember the words) Tony was next and gave us two of his own, Donkey song and' Dumped by Text'

Shy Eddie sprang up next with I'm a Rambler and My Blue Heaven which included a nifty bit of lead.

The Silver Fox picked his way through 'Milk and Honey and Kathy's Song' and was followed by Pluto Swint's Rubber band who gave us Small Town Saturday Night and City of New Orleans.

Birthday boy GT was with us next and gave us The Wayward Wind (a digestive problem me thinks) followed by Long and Winding Road.

Kiwi  Geoff gave the great sing a long 'Glory of Love' and Green Green with Shy Eddie.

Don was next up for it with a tasty song called Richmond Woman Blues followed by one of his own, 'A real Love Song' the only song of the evening with the word pisspot in it.

Sunrise - one, were here and gave 'And I love her' (Nice Bongos) and Catch the Wind, the second digestive tract song of the evening.

Paul gave us artists whose birthday was this week. we had Tom Waites and Little Richard. As there were only two songs I wonder who the third was?

Ted and Anne were here for the third club night in a row and gave us Captains Lanoe and Hear the Nightingale sing.

Alan our Lime Meadow Virgin was next and gave us Sally and Hard Times.  A good set, do come again Alan.

The Bard was next and gave us Grandad's Wedding and Canal in October in which I joined him. The tune not the canal !!. I stayed on and sang 'She's a Lady'

Stefan gave the weirdest title of the night, An Anthem to Pork Pies !!

The penultimate or was it second to last spot was Acoustic Graham who gave us 'Fool if you think it's over' and 'Wherever I lay my hat'

Birthday boy GT came back and finishd the evening with can't Buy me Love'
