What a glorious start to the year. With Ash Bell and Sara Tindley as guest vocalists, Jamie Pattugalin on drums and Rod Coe on bass with new comer Anni Di Groot on Viola and Violin. A really enjoyable two sets of music that peaked with Toto’s Africa, followed by Elton John’s I’m Still Standing.
There were many great moments, Rosie killed her two tunes and Miss Amber had a great night also. Val Hogson’s ‘better half’ Barry has made two tenor guitars and after much trial and error has found the correct stings to be able to tune to standard ‘C’ ukulele Tuning. Stu played Jim Croce‘s Time In A Bottle on the ‘BAZ’ and it wasn’t too shabby. Actually a very beautiful instrument to play. Great intonation and surprisingly not too much of a stretch. This song was chosen by the 1000th subscriber to the Youtube Channel – Colleen Crawford who also landed Stu his current regular teaching job. There was a hush in the room.
