Excellent STARTIME again
- Carole with Kirstie McColl’s “In These Shoes”. Nice Latin beat with Brian on drums
- Les H with a lesser known George Harrison number “Isn’t It A Pity” from his 1970 album All Things Must Pass.
- David Brindley with Joe Brown’s “I Like Bananas”, good audience participation – ‘Cos They Have No Bones. From Joe’s The Ukulele Album released 2012, so fairly recent.
- And from the same album, Graham Porter with I’ll See You In My Dreams – great uking, but what else have we come to expect. Level 5 song, let’s all do some practising.
Thanks to David Brindley for all the hard work he does with the videos, to provide a visual record of each and every for us.
Next week it’s Eunice and Les B. They say it will be a cowboy theme, but there’s probably a few weepy ones in there as well. Play list later.
Apart from a couple of members Eunice has received the £2 per member for catering for the Christmas session on 22nd December. Still a plea for items to decorate the room on the night. We are proposing to hold a raffle, so suitable prizes would be appreciated – always bearing in mind that Diane says she likes whisky, but only if it’s a decent aged single malt !!
Carole and Brian have been asked by McCarthy and Stone (The Retirement Home Builders) if we could do a couple of performances for them on Wednesday 2nd December in Southport. The event is from 11 until 4 pm, and volunteers will get a three course meal and The Club a donation for Club Funds or for Charity. As we don’t presently need the money, I suggest we donate to charity. Could we have ideas of which one to support. In that respect Dave D gave me a clipping from the local newspaper, which was an article about “Sing For Your Heart” by the national charity Heart Research UK, asking for local pubs and organisations to put on a sing-a-long for the local community on the run up to Christmas. Some names were taken on the night, but if you find you are able to attend please let me know. Fuller details later when Brian has spoken to the firm. We also need to decide on a playlist – anyone willing to take responsibility for drawing up an initial list, so we can all have the appropriate music sheets with us. Also, we will probably need some sound equipment.
I won’t be there next week unfortunately, I have a funeral to attend in Norfolk. So Eunice please DON’T FORGET THE SANDWICHES. And if Eric could do a Wednesday morning write up I’d be grateful.
