Be-Bop at the Hop

The be-bopin’ Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

It was great to see Mama G and the Be-Bop Brunettes back at the club. At least that’s who they were when they arrived. However, as I added them to the list, they did mention they were looking for a new name. By the time their turn was called, the deed had been done and they were introduced as “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”. I think it’s fair to say we were suitably beguiled by their beautiful close harmonies.

Penni Neale

Which just left us with ‘The Hop’

♫♪ Come on, let’s go to the hop
Well, you can swing it you can groove it
You can really start to move it at the hop… ♪♫

Or so the song goes. And one person who had all the moves was Penni Neale. Not wanting to let the small matter of a broken leg and a zimmer frame get in the way of the music, she put her best foot forward, stepped up to the mic and performed a belter of a set.

With the ladies outnumbering the gents six to five, we also had a helping of gospel from Lynda, and Glyn Hudson paid tribute to Doris Day, who sadly passed away this week at the age of 97, singing one of the star’s most memorable songs, “Que Sera Sera”.

Robin Spreckley

As for the men, we had some of the usual suspects putting together an eclectic selection of songs: Tom Degney, Chris Birchall, Robin Spreckley, Richard Ruthin and Bob Hall.

In terms of its maximum capacity, the room was just over half full (definitely not half empty 🙂 ) and it was altogether a grand evening.

Reminder…
Just one month from now, we have a solo concert by the lovely Virginia Kettle, of Merry Hell fame.

Get your tickets booked now. It’s highly subsidised at just £5 (from WeGotTickets). Regular members can buy theirs on a club night at the usual concessionary price.
