Club Blog News and Views

Club night 27/2/19

February 28, 2019

Welcome to the blog. I arrived late to the proceedings as was at Selhurst Park, alas watching Palace lose so I was not au fait with all that went on prior to my arrival.

I walked in to a very healthy crowd with an excellent atmosphere !! Diamond Neil made a few notes so I will have a stab at giving you a flavour of the evening.

Diamond Neil himself kicked of the evening with Norwegian Wood and and the ever popular May You Never.

Geoff followed with California Dreaming and For Baby.

A welcome return for Alan the Geordie with his songs from the North West as opposed to our Stefan on the North East. Alan sang Byker Hill and The Coal Miner and the Pitman's wife.

On came Ted and Anne with their usual foot-tapping selection of Jigs and alike  and were folowed by the Silver Fox who gave us Big River and Annirversary Waltz.

Charlie was next and gave us Country Roads and Remembering, one of Charlie's own songs.

Sunrise in their full glory gave us Scarborough Fair and a bit of Donovan.

The Bard from Beddington was next and gave a belated Valentine song and a song about Whiskers.

On came Don and gave us Candyman and Too Lazy for Love from Don's back catalogue.

GT slipped a bit of Waylon Jennings and Dylan with Make you feel my Love.

Shy Eddie was next to tread the boards and gave us his signature tune 'When You're Smiling and 6 Days on the Road.

Nick gave a couple of his own instrumentals played with excellent sound effects I'm told, alas I missed it

Pluto Swints Rubber Band were on next and gave us a sea shanty and another song Neil hasn't writen down but all will be revealed in Dave's most excellent videos on our web site. Red Carol joined the band for a nice gentle Welsh Folk Song.

All the performers had another bash with one more song..

Andy came on as the penultimate act  and didn't give the name of his song but very good it was too,

The Bard, Aidan and myself rounded off the evening with a couple of 'Toons' 'The Great North Run/ Sussex Cotillion.

I must thank Frank the Bass for his valuble input during the evening.
