Thanks to this week’s resident band – Dave D on bass (unfortunately no Ken or Brian, but he did very well), Brendan on drums (ably assisted by Tom and Diane), Tom on percussion and Eddie on harmonica.
I am deeply indebted to all those who volunteered to lead the songs, you were great – Eddie, Les B, Joy, Ernie, Trevor, Mark, Dave D, Steve McG and Les H.
Let’s never forget all the cakes from Joy, thanks very much, don’t we just like school holiday time??!! Scrummy.
Another great STARTIME thanks to
- Tom who gave us an amusing twist on Dean Martin’s song Little Old Wine(Lodge) Drinker Me. Excellent stuff.
- Les B gave us a song from way back in 1932, written by Bob Nolan, and recorded by many artists such as Frankie Laine and Marty Robbins. Cool Water. Les would like to thank all those in his backing choir.
- Steve McGreavy gave us a 1964 protest song written by P F Sloan and recorded by Barry McQuire, Eve of Destruction. This song reached No 1 on the US Billboard charts and was No3 in the UK in 1965.
- Les H gave us Leon Redbone’s At The Chocolate Bon Bon Ball from his 1992 album Up A Lazy River.
Next week it’s our AGM, so please try to be there for a prompt start and we can hopefully get the business part over with ASAP.
Next week it’s the turn of the two Grahams. We trust Graham P will be fir and well by then.
Please note that the Ladies turn has been moved back by one week, so they can do a special for us on the Club’s birthday.
Could I just repeat the message which I passed on yesterday from Graham Porter to all session leaders. Could everyone try to keep their song libraries up to date with the latest song revisions sent around by Graham after a lot of hard work making them a truer representation of the originals. If not, please get your songs from DropBox which is always up to date. It’s a bit annoying for Graham, after all his efforts, if we continue to present the Club with old song arrangements. Ta.. Steve
