September saw the return of that outrageous and nutty Mae Wilde who brought her demure and seemingly almost quiet by comparison friend Ilona Harker. Also appearing was the best male vocalist (2012), Ashley Bell singing songs by his favourite artist at the time… Paul Simon. We had The Matt’s rhythm section, Matt Bone on double bass and Matt Akehurst on drums, Kim Moxham back on sax and of course Chad Sheather on uke. It was a demanding set and all played exceptionally well.
Highlights were all of Ashes Songs, Gracelands, Diamonds On The Souls of Her Shoes and ‘Call Me Al’ and Mae’s House OF Bamboo. The climax was was of course ‘Life is A Cabaret’… what show stopper. Great night. Thanks to all the helpers and supporters.
