Hi everyone, the final session of 2017 will be a full on Christmas special.
We’ll be playing loads of great tunes (and some average ones) including Winter Wonderland, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Fairytale of New York, White Christmas, Jingle Bell Rock, Rockin around the Christmas Tree, War is Over, that one about a Hippopotamous and yes that one by Slade as well…..
Hope to see you there (looking suitably festive!)
…..will be on the 28th of November. I’ll update you on the set as when I know what it is!
In the meantime, Beth and I will be playing a half hour set of our cello/guitar/vocal duo at the George Evelyn pub in Long Ditton next Tuesday (21st). Feel free to come down and say hello!
One of our number, Anne, is going to miss the next session because she has been invited to Cardiff Castle – there is an exhibition there about her grandfather who played a vital role in World War One!
There is an article about his exploits in the Express here
….will be Martin’s Bass Medley extravaganza! He will be providing some low end for us.
All are welcome so come down and have some fun.
The set will include –
Brown Eyed Girl
House of the Rising Sun
I Walk the Line
Maxwell’s Silver Hammer
People are Strange
Twist and Shout
When I’m Dead and Gone
Whisky in the Jar
Fats Domino Medley
C’est La Vie
We’ll be paying tribute to Fats Domino with a medley of some of his big hits – Ain’t that a Shame, Blueberry Hill, I’m Walking, and I hear you Knocking.
And then we will be combining the jazzy side of things with Halloween and getting a bit Spooky
……31st! I’m going to try to introduce a couple more swing/jazz/croony tunes. Maybe something like Blue Moon, or something by Frank Sinatra….we shall see!
….is on the 17th of October and we are going to be doing loads of classics! I just haven’t decided which ones yet…..
Looking forward to it already.
