Reminder

For those of you who didn’t know or have forgotten , RAY STUBBS will be appearing with us again next Tuesday 4th of November . It’s always a great night when Ray is with us as anyone who has seen him will attest . So get yourself to the Grosvenor on Tuesday and be assured of an entertaining evening. Now just a mention of the two recent gigs I wrote about last time . The first one as part of the wonderful MusicPort festival was played before a gratifyingly enthusiastic audience . We’d like to thank  Paul Whittaker and his team for controlling our sound so expertly.          The other gig was the benefit for the Great North Air Ambulance organised by our long-time friend Brian and raised almost £700 !  Those who were able to attend saw a varied programme of great music . The whole evening was compered with sophistication and humour by the unflappable Sir JAMES LUPTON despite his suffering from what is best described as ( dare I say it ? ) ‘ manflu ‘ ! With the assistance of copious quantities of medication Jimmy was able to get through the night even , at one point demonstrating his mastery of the ukelele ! What a star !         Also on the bill was another good friend of ours , vocalist  ANNE HILL . She was accompanied by the JG4 ( who ? ) Then we were treated to a set from a group of fabulous musicians the WEEKEND MILLIONAIRES which include our own PHIL MOORE , guitarist PAUL WHITTAKER,  drummer STEVE COOPER and vocalist ROWENA SOMERVILLE .   We mustn’t forget the dynamic contribution of LUKE PEARSON who sang with the DIAMONDS and the MILLIONAIRES . Luke is a regular guest of ours on our Tuesday night sessions. So there you have it , a superb night of fantastic music performed by talented musicians for a very worthy cause .
