I’ll say it early, thanks Donna for all the cakes, must admit I had more than one. Thanks for all the work put in by Eunice, Elaine and Diane in leading the evening. Quite a lot of themed tunes, not all with easy strumming patterns, but when we got to the end all the tips were there! Well done to barman John for getting into the spirit of the evening. Thanks to everyone for making the effort to dress appropriately, the girls were bewitching and the lads got their ghoulies out!
Thanks to this week’s Ashes – Brenda on Drums, Ken on bass, Tom on percussion and Eddie on harmonica.
Thanks to this week’s soloists – Ernie, Eddie, Graham K, Trevor, Brendan, Joe, Eric, Les H, Donna, Dave D, Mark, Martin and Steve McG. To Donna and Betty who killed us softly, Margo and Anne who were dead and gone, and the various groups who tried to mash our monster.
Short but sweet STARTIME this week, thanks to the two Leses
- Les H gave us The Rolling Stones’ Sympathy For The Devil (1968)
- Les B sang The Hangman’s Boogie (1949), recorded by Cowboy Copas, real name Lloyd Estel Copas. A member of the Grand Old Opry, he died in the same 1963 plane crash as Patsy Cline.
DON’T forget next week to be there by 7:30 dressed in your Phoenix Club Polo Shirts for the presentation of the £500 cheque to Wigan and Leigh Hospice.
This Thursday, it’s Diane and Dave’s evening at the Crown, New Springs, and we are promised that Diane WILL be there.
