Club Night 28th August 19

August 30, 2019

Welcome to the blog. Here's an overview of the songs. For a fuller account see Dav's videos on the club website on facebook. I was in the graveyard slot tonight, should have been Diamond Neil but he blasted his ear by the playback monitor. I kicked off proceedings with two instrumentals: Whizz and 234, a tad rusty but there you go.'

Richard gave us John Denver and Don McClean followed by Don (minus Jackie) who dipped into his Reggae repatoire with Jimmy Cliff and Red Red Wine by Neil Diamond.

Whytleafe Les was back with us with his excellent self penned stuff. One was called 'Roundshaw'.

Sunrise were with us and gave us some lovely tunes and harmonies and a sing along with 'Whiskey in the Jar'.

The Silver Fox picked his way through a Dylan themed set  . Girl From the North Country a particular fave of mine.

Geoff themed with Bobby Darren who he had seen live no less. 'Things' was great to sing along to.

Shy Eddie plus Banjo was with us. Eddie is in the Emerald Isle next fortnight so will miss the Banjo evening. He knocked out a few excellent banjo tunes.

Pluto  Swint with a new member in the shape of our very own Stefan on banjo. They began with 'Catfish John' a song I hadn't heard before. A good set all round.

Paul was up for it of course and played a pop song theme which included Get Down by Gilbert O'Sullivan.

Good to see Andy with us again who played his electric plus effects. City of New Orleans' was his first number.

Orpington John was with us and joined by a Lime Meadow Virgin Brian. They played 'Waterfall by Jimi Hendrix,' excellent.

Brian went on to play his own set. He's a very accomplished guitarist and finished his set with the rousing 'Walking in Memphis'.

A recovered Diamond Neil finished the evening off with Fire and Rain and a bit of Jim Croce.

Self Penners tonight:

Chris

Les

Don't forget next club night bring your Banjo if you play one, and if you don't just do what you usually do.

Hope to see GT soon who has been a tad poorly.
