We have a gig booked! It is on the 27th March at the George Evelyn Open Mic Night in Long Ditton; I think we will be on at around 8 30.
I’ve got next weeks set for the group session (on the 20th) sorted out and the seven song set for the gig will come from it, so if anyone wants to do a bit of practise then they can. But the gig really is nothing to worry about for any of you who haven’t played before – not only is there safety in numbers but also the crowd who come to these nights are very friendly. And the word ‘crowd’ is an exaggeration.
Don’t worry if you can’t/aren’t sure about/definitely don’t want to do the gig – everyone is welcome to the session at the library as normal.
Anyway, next weeks set list –
And then I Kissed Her, Bad Moon Rising, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Come on up to the House, Everyday, Folsom Prison Blues/Pinball Wizard, Goody Two Shoes, Happy Together, Hound Dog, Living Doll, Rocking all over the World, Sloop John B, Stuck in the Middle with you, Sunny Afternoon, These Boots are made for Walking.
Thanks to Kate and Martin for their input on this list!
Hi everyone, the next session will be on the 22/8. I think we will be doing some sort of tribute to Glen Campbell who aswell as singing classics like Rhinestone Cowboy and Witchita Lineman also played as a session musician on loads of ace tracks. I just need to remember which ones and then work out if we can play them……..
In other news, one of Beth and my recent albums is available to buy/stream on Amazon now, if you like downbeat cello/piano music (somebody must????) have a look here.
Anyway, we’re off on holiday now, so see you when we get back.
The next session is on Tuesday 8th August, and we will be spending about half the time playing a selection of Beatles classics including I Saw her Standing there, Maxwell’s Silver Hammer, Help, The Ballad of John and Yoko and loads of other good ones.
Should be good fun, feel free to turn up in those round John Lennon Glasses or Sgt. Pepper outfits……I will be coming as the Walrus…..
