Club Night 24th May 17

May 25, 2017

Welcome one and all to the blog. A warm and sultry gig with fingers slipping off strings a plenty.

Diamond Neil kicked off in the 'Graveyard Slot' with 'Fire and Rain' and 'Sweet Baby James'. Neil always does the Beatles justice.

I slipped in with 'Arms of Mary' Why no song about her legs? I followed up with Knob and Bollockshire(check the map)/Seyfi accompanied by Up Yours on Mandolin.

The Silver Fox plus clammy fingers went through a  Richard Thompson song plus Cathy's Song' picked to perfection of course.

Lime Meadows answer to Sonny and Cher in the shape of Alex and Jane who gave us 'If I needed you' Are you sure this is where you want to be? and then Keychange joined Alex with 'Don't let your Babies grow up to be Cowboys'.

Keychange remained on stage joined by Welsh Carol and Chris the Bass. We had 'A cold night in California sung by Welsh Carol then Go West High up a mountain and then the first Ovine song of the evening 'I'll never find another Ewe'

Nick and Helen stepped up to the plate and sang Crazy and I will always love you plus Angels will fly. With a crystal clear voice, lovely hair and great legs and that was just Nick. 

Golden Tonsils was back in the form of Tony Meadows with resplendent hat and specs(no glass in them) with his brand of singalong good time songs. We had Pina Colada, I hope you can dance and 'Another  Saturday Night' We all had a good sing and it was good to see Tony back in the fold. Go on,do one of your own next time Tony !

Up yours was next and sung a cracker about jogging plus other with wit and pathos as usual. Tony's guitar was almost in tune this week.

Irish Eddie gave us a another dose of singalongs including When I'm 64 and Blue Suede Shoes. Never fails to get us going. Would love Eddie  to do a few numbers with Golden Tonsils.

Graham as usual gave us an eclectic set with Love is all around being on of my Fave's. When Wet x 3 recorded it Reg spent the money on investigating crop circles. Honest !! We had Song for you and 'You Can't judge a book by looking at the cover.  Nice set Graham.

Herbie smoothed on to the stage and sang among others. 'Planes and Boats and Planes and Me and Julio down by the schoolyard all delivered in Herbie's inimitable style.

Our penultimate act or was it second to last act was Simon, Chris and Roger (no name yet) who gave us some tasty guitar and flute with three instrumentals the last being 'Isn't she lovely. Good set lads come back soon.

Last and certainly not least came S&M. Michelle continues with her smokey vocals only matched by Carsik's tasty guitar and keyboards. We had Strawberry Fields, 'Just the way you are, and 'I still haven't found what i'm looking for. Great way to finish the evening.

Self penned club were Myself and Up Yours Tony.

Tony Meadows is of course is Tony Fields for the record.

Thanks to those who help with clearing up and see you all in two weeks.

Broken pencils are pointless.
