Club Night 12/9/18

September 13, 2018

Welcome one and all to the blog. A relaxed evening with an  unhurried feel about it. Everybody got a decent play and a few extras. Just out of interest I timed the acts from first chord to last.

Diamonfd Neil was in the graveyard slot this evening and gave us Time in a bottle by Jim Croce. 4:30.

Paul was next, usually performing in the arse end of the evening was promoted and gave us 'I who have nothing, Careless Whisper, and 'You're Beautiful' all delivered with lashings of energy and passion. 11:23

GT was into a theme again tonight but asked to look out for it ourselves. His songs were:Two Pina Coladas, Thunder Rose, 'Kicking and Screaming'. Put your answers at the bottom of the blog if you can guess the theme. 11:35

Sunrise in their full glory tonight were next with the spooky ;Ghost Riders in the Sky, I missed the 2nd number and Rivers of Babylon. 14:21

The Kiwi Crooner was next up for it and gave us 'Stuck on you', 'Can't help falling in Love', and One night with you. We had a little bit of Elvis impersonation going on as well.7:25

We had a long lost duo in the shape of Chris and Geoff, they were last with us when we were in the snug bar.. Chris also plays bass in Neil's band. They gave us, The Deportees, A River Runs between' and a trad song I didn't get the title of. Good stuff come back soon 13:00

Up came the Silver Fox with a guitar and not a brush and gave us 'I'll be there in the mornig', a John Prine song and 'No way to say goodbye'. Picked to perfection. 11:00

Dave was on his lonesome tonight armed with his trusty axe. Dave gave us a slice of Merle Haggard, 'Send me back home',we had a bit of Dwight Yoakam and 'Two more Bottles of Wine' which I think Dave said was recorded by Emmy Lou Harris. 10:57

Alex minus banjo was next we had 'Creeps Like Me, Will ye go Lassie go, and Motorways of England  plus a few quips. 10:10

On came Polly armed with her AutoHarp. Your Cheating Heart was the first song, followed by Dimming of the day and a Steve Earle song Someday. Lovely ! 10:45

Electric Graham was next up for it with his usual eclectic mix and gave us: 'Someone Like You' Don't dream it's over, and California Blues.10:01

On came the Bard od Beddington and gave us a song about Mary and John, The Next Lone Ranger and played a duet with myself called 'The Rose Hip' 10:02

I remained on stage for a few songs which were: Airport Song, Please be with me and Cripple Creek Ferry. I didn't time myself.  My theme was there was no connection with any of the songs.

A few more song were played to finish the evening.

Don't forget to correct anything in the blog or add a comment at the end of the blog. You can also see Dave's excellent videos of the evening on Facebook.
