Kessingland W.M Club

Had a lovely night with a really good turnout at Kessingland Working Mans Club last Sunday.  Performed a lot of newer songs from my new CD and that seemed to go down so well. Sold some cds as well which is always a good sign.  Got to know a lot of the regulars there over some years now and my thanks to Gail and Richard for 4 more bookings next year.  Look forward to being back there again.    Will be at the Wensum Valley Music Club with Bobby Graham this coming Sunday and 2 weeks later my own club event at the same venue with our guest this time Dave Sheriff, all the way from his home in Telford. 

Pat James & Friends Club July

Had a good turnout this time round at The Wensum Valley.  Two fab sets from the very popular Susan Jayne with my usual input and some duets with Susan made for a very enjoyable afternoon and eary evening. Very hot and a lovely view over the golf course. Don't know where some of you find the energy but dance floor well occupied throughout.

Sorry Norma and Ray couldn't make it this time. Missed by us all and look forward to seeing them both next time.  Vals sister Bridget had a problem before the start and Paramedics attended. Bridget was taken into Hospital but after tests and a period of observation was allowed home thankfully. Wish you well Bridget. xx

Good news from David of The Ghostriders that my good friend Ed Cuffe is out of hospital now and is even helping organise this weeks Debenham Country Music Festival.  I am there from 1 to 5pm on Saturday.

When attempting to book our dates for next year, Maggie and I were disappointed to learn the Wensum Valley had no Sundays left in July or August next year.  As a regular booking, we felt really unhappy that they had filled both months without reference to us.   The Upstairs Kingfisher Suite isn't popular with our crowd, so it is likely we will seek a replacement venue for those two months and bring back Maggies famed Buffet.  In the light of this, we are now seeking to book our dates for 2020. Wow!. Good job we are all getting younger.

So pleased with your support on this very hot day. Susan and I really enjoyed your company.  Its me and Bobby Graham next month, Sunday 12th August, so hope to see ya all then xx
