Pat James & Friends May event


A really lovely afternoon and early evening at my monthly music event at The Wensum Valley Country Club. Another bumper crowd turned out for a mix of Country music and sixties hits from myself and our guest act , the highly experienced and very popular local act Graham Johns who seems to get better with age.  Thanks Graham. Two great sets and everyone loved you mate , as you could see with such a busy dance floor.  Nice sound system as well.   Good luck with the new band. Sure it will be a big success."Graham and The Meercats" is a nice title  Lol.       Thanks again from all at Pat James & Friends x

Great night for the Irish 

Had a great night with The Irish Society of East Anglia at The Holiday Inn, Norwich Airport.  The event kicked off with Irish dancing with some youngsters of all ages displaying their dancing skills to an appreciative audience. The youngest was just four years old.  I hope to put some video on soon.   Then a 3 course dinner followed by entertainment from yours truly before a break for raffle.  My second set was preceded by Hughie O'Sullivan on his accordian and a few jokes . Love ya Hughie, as did everyone.  Finished at 12.30am with many still there. Overall a lovely night, well organised and a pleasure to be involved with.

Met one of my Canary greats from around 1985 when Norwich City FC won the then, Milk Cup.   Mark Barham, who still has a role within the club.   My thanks to Marcus and Tara for booking me for their St Patricks Dinner Dance.
