This was the third show at out new home in The Ex-Services club. I was worried sick that no one was going to show up. The publicity had a hitch and it was a rainy night. Just as we were to go on stage, the room started filling up and bang… It was a superb evening. The band was cookin’ – a real nice rockin’ sound.
Miss Amber sang well and really enjoyed herself, I think partly because Maria Stratton was back on violin, percussion and BV’s, the pair were like naughty school girls. Our guest vocalists Pete C and Jerry Chambers were just perfect for the evening. Just the right attitude and tattoos. Al Brooker was the man for the job on bass and Rex Carter on drums made a fine Charlie Watts.
Much kudos and respect to Evan Sun who had all the right guitar tones and the licks and solos worked out brilliantly. Went off without a hitch. Some mighty cheers from the crowd and the participation was excellent, with great choir work. Erina Leech got up again for the second consecutive uke night and sang a wonderful version of “As Tears Go By”. Great sound from Luis.
Much gratitude to all who helped including Deb on the door, Luke from the club and Cristine Sharrat. Sista Mary remarked at the end of the evening, Uke Mullum has now made the club it’s home. Could not be happier with how the night went.
