New Guest for September Club event

Pleased to tell you Maggie and I have booked a very special guest performer for our Club event on September 16th.   Originally booked for this date was the very popular Graham Johns, but he will now be with us in November instead.

All will be revealed at our next club event on Sunday 17th June at our regular venue, The Wensum Valley Hotel & Country Club, when our guest will be the increasingly popular Mr Mitchell C Scott.    Hope to see as many of you as possible this coming week.   I guarantee you will not be disappointed when you hear who we will be seeing ( and hearing)  in September.  Meanwhile, Mitch and I will be providing you with a great variety of the very best in Country Music this coming Sunday.

Jubilee Hall Event

A really good turnout for this fund raising gig last Sunday at Jubille Hall in Loddon.  Susan Jayne and I were so pleased at the success of this event at its significance in being a tribute to Dick Bloy of R & B Entertainment who sadly passed away recently after over 50 years in entertainment.  His wife Eileen organised this and used the occasion to raise funds to help with the hall maintenance, both herself and Dick having shared a history of supporting this lovely venue. Dick himself had sat outside what was a building site all those years ago selling bricks for this building. A highly successful event with over £600 being raised to help keep this wonderful local amenity in shape for future events. Well done to all concerned including of course the bar staff and those smashing people in the kitchen.

                                  Lovely day with lovely people.

Coming on Sunday June 3rd.

Sunday June 3rd

sees me gigging once more with the ever popular Susan Jayne atThe Jubilee Hall in Loddon.  Ticket sales have been going well I understand. Perhaps the earlier cancellation of this gig because of bad weather in March has had a positive effect.  There is a raffle and tombola and a bar for hot and cold drinks and snacks.   Proceeds after costs will go the Hall maintenence funds.  The event starts at 3pm and is due to finish at 8pm.    If you havent yet got tickets, dont worry, it is a very large hall and you can just pay £6 on entry.   Hope to see you there x

Congratulations Clarkes Country Club

Congratulations to Clarkes Country Club on the very first gig last Sunday. 

  Headed up by Marc James, the first one featured Marc and my old mate Gordon James.   With fewer venues promoting Country music these days, it is refreshing to see another starting out and using local talent for local country fans.  Well done Marc in getting this together.  Wishing you every success in the future.

New CD

Going through a quiet time with my gigs right now, so taking an opportunity to record another CD.  Mostly Country music, it will be 14 - 16 tracks and will include some of those which I perform regularly at our club, plus a few more lesser known tracks to provide some variety.  Working on the Title right now. Should be a little different.    Just invested in a new Dynacord mixer to lighten my gear a little whilst hopefully improving sound quality from a piece of equipment around 10 years newer than my heavier and older mixer amp which has served me well.  Had the opportunity of trying it our at a recent private gig and the difference in clarity is amazing.  Looking forward to seeing you all soon.  xx
