Well almost. At least it was, by the time we’d packed all the stuff away and finished off the Guinness.
I’m not a bit superstitious of course, touch wood 😉
In any case, we managed to avoid ladders and black cats on the way home.
Being the tail end of the Easter holidays, our Thursday-the-twelfth Singers’ Night was a bit light, with just twenty in the room, eight of whom were performers.
It was a very enjoyable night nevertheless. Quite often we don’t manage to get a second spot each after the break, whereas this week, all bar a couple of late comers got to do three spots and up to five songs each.
A Bit [of] Shambolic
As well as the usual suspects, it was good to see Mike Kendrick back at the club, busy as he is with not one but two bands, The Dansette Alligators and the Shambolics.
One of the late arrivals was Harri Owen who called in after a rehearsal session with his band, Ceidwad Y Gân – The Quaykeepers.
Harri hadn’t intended singing, but we found him a guitar and persuaded him to round off the evening, which he did in fine style with a great rendition of Paolo Nutini’s “Iron Sky”.
Andrew Bowsher, Joe Lyon, Chris Birchall, Tom and Lynda Degney, Mike Kendrick, Brian Peters and Harri Owen.
