Thanks to this week’s Ashes – Dave on bass, Brendan on drums, Eddie on harmonica and Tom on percussion and bass and drums – so versatile. What do they say about jack of all trades ???
Graham stated in his set list circular that we would do as many as we could get through and apart from Margie which was substituted with Wig Wam Bam and Hot Stuff, which we really must do sometime soon, we did them all and then some.
So thanks to Les B, Dave D , Joy, Eddie, Tom, Mark, Joe, The Abba ladies (Joy, Elaine and Gillian), Brendan, Brian, Trevor, Graham K, Graham P, Mary would be Proud of them the Ainscough Bros, Mary and Jo, Les H, Steve G, Steve (Grand Dad, it’s too Loud) McGreavy, not forgetting the Five Degrees – Joy, Jo, Elaine, Eunice and Gill (the song was actually sung by the Supremes, but they’re not that good).
Shorter STARTIME, but some good stuff from the following
- The Joe Balmer Trio is now the Joe Balmer Showband who gave us Mary, It’s A Grand Old Name. A song off a wax cylinder and performed by James Cagney and Joan Leslie in Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942)
- Mark sang the Beatle’s Your Mother Should Know from their 1967 EP -The Magical Mystery Tour.
- Les B, Eddie and Tom combined as No Direction to sing High Noon. Either Tex Ritter or Frankie Laine, both recordings from 1952. I’m inclined to forsake them.
This Thursday, it is Diane and Dave’s do at the Crown, New Springs.
Next week it is Trevor and Steve’s Duet’s Night. There is still time to tell him your chosen number at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is also presentation night so wear your T-shirts for the photoshoot.
Following a Committee Meeting on Monday 26th, I shall be issuing the notice of our AGM. So it’s time to start thinking of Nominations and Resolutions for that meeting on 27th March 2018.
