However, we also managed to squeeze in no fewer than twelve floor spots, including some Egyptian vibes from Yasmin, from Wrexham, who was visiting the club for the first time.
After the floor spots, we all settled back to enjoy an hour of beautiful sounds courtesy of our showcase guests Katie and James. Listening to their lovely mix of original songs and covers, it is hard to believe they have only been performing together for a couple of years or so. In fact, one of their first performances as a duo was on one of our online lockdown shows.
Their music and harmonies left us all spellbound, and the shouts of “more” saw them closing their set with a fine Radio Head classic.
For the final segment of the evening, the Random Generator delivered some extra songs from Peter Leslie, Tom Degney and the Jackson Williams duo, Skeet and Debs. and what turned out to be a “see-ya-later” spot from Canada Phil before heading off across the Atlantic for three months.
Next Thursday – a little bird tells me that the Wizard from the Wirral, John Williams, will be back behind the microphone following an enforced sabbatical whilst recovering from surgery.
