Charity Event at Jubillee Hall, Loddon

Had a fab night at Jubilee Hall, Loddon with this Charity Event for Air Ambulance.   With an attendance of well over 100 people, the total sum raised on the night was £674.97 after all expenses. A wonderful effort by all those who turned out to support this gig.   Susan Jayne, a very popular local singer was in great form and I was pleased to perform a few duets with her.  Lovely to see my mate Terry Mitchell and wife Beth together with around 16 of Terrys friends, including some lovely girls from the Philipines , some of whom gave us all a visual dancing treat.. Terry did the compering for the evening in his usual efficient manner. Well Appreciated Terry.   Great Credit to promoters Eileen and Dick, of R & B entertainments who had organised this terrific event, that was so well supported.  Pictures should appear shortly in my Gallery tab, under Air Ambulance Charity Event 2012.

Colt 45 Club, Bucklesham

Had a lovely evening with the members of The Colt 45 Club, Bucklesham (between Ipswich and Felixstowe on Saturday 7th July. Regretfully, numbers attending were really low and disappointing.  The were lots of other competing music nights fairly locally and this evidently had its effect. Nevertheless, a really good night with those who had turned up and , thanks to peoples generosity with raffle and donations to this long established club, I understand a profit was shown from the night.  Well done Ed and Jan Cuffe and Bernie and Ivy who helped keep things going whilst Ray Allotson is recovering from his leg break.

A video of Susan and I singing Love is no excuse is now on my movie tab..

Appreciated John.

Daniels Footsteps Club

Was very pleased to see many long standing friends at this wonderful club set up in tribute to Daniel O'Donnell.. I was asked to sing for them on the occasion of their 13th birthday birthday party. Wow, can't believe its that long since Rodney and Wendy Scase and Roz started up. So pleased that it continues to be a roaring success and those attending get so much pleasure from it.  Resident singer Kevin Barry is so well thought of here and deservably so.  Great work you folks, keep it going.   I have posted some pics from this event on my gallery tab.  Missed getting any of the organisers as my batteries ran out.
