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.

2013 dates

2013 dates are now in my gig guide for The Pat James and Friends Club. We will of course be booking our regular acts during the year including Bobby Graham and Gordon James.   As is our normal practice, we have informed both sets of organisers at Daniels Footsteps Club of Carleton Colville and also The Jukebox Club in Norwich. 

Susan Jayne duet now on Movie tab.

A video of Susan and I singing Love is no excuse is now on my movie tab.. Look forward to doing this one on July 14th at Jubilee Hall in Loddon when Susan and I will be doing a Charity gig for Air Ambulance.  With thanks to John Shaw of Mulbarton for his patience in taking this movie along with others 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.

New Bookings just in

Wow, John Weavers at Kessingland United W.M Club is getting organised early for next year.  John has given me 6 bookings for 2013 including Old Years night which again falls on December 31st. (Tuesday) Tickets will be available to members only.   Thanks for that John,  I always consider it a compliment to be asked back again and do enjoy the company of all the regulars at Kessingland. We're having some great nights with you.
