Thanks very much to Elaine and then Eunice for the scrolling. Thanks indeed to Joe for leading the evening extremely well and for choosing some very tuneful and melodic numbers.
Thanks to this week’s Ashes - Brendan on drums, Brian on bass and Eddie on harmonica but mainly on panpipes – he only needed a poncho and he could sit in Wigan town centre and flog a few CDs.
Thanks to those who fronted some of the numbers – Les B, Dave D, Eddie, David S, Trevor, Mark, Graham P, Brendan, Joe, Steve McG. Elaine, Jo and Anne sang Wouldn’t It Be Lovely, which it would have been except for Joe’s scrolling. He said he got over-exciting watching them perform, something in his tea me think’s. Elaine, Jo and Gillian went to a Tavern in the Town and Mark and t’wife left on a jetplane.
We noticed that Gill has started a new trend of arriving just as everyone else is leaving, but a delight to see and hear her any week.
Thanks to those who gave us a varied but entertaining STARTIME
- Eddie who sang Dr Hook’s Sylvia’s Mother (1972). Along with Sexy Eyes, the group’s most successful song.
- Steve McG gave us The Beach Boys Little Deuce Coupe (1963), one of Brian Wilson’s first compositions.
- Trevor sang Oasis’ Half a World Away, written and sung by Noel Gallagher and recorded in Austin Texas it was a hit in 1994. It is famously the theme song to the TV programme The Royle Family.
- Dave D as a last minute stand-in for Lee gave us Jim Croce’s Alabama Rain (1973)
