We’ll it’s been another busy weekend only this time I’ve been doing the 1960s at the Midland Railway and my word don’t they take their trains serosuly there! It’s a real Puffer Nutters Paradise let me tell you!
At first I wasn’t sure when I took the booking if I would have enough repotire for 3 x 45 minute non repetative shows daily but as it turned out I had more than enough. When I counted up I had about 50 songs from the 50s and 60s plus 6 medleys arrangements so I was well coved and everyone seemed to enjoy my solection. I’ve really enjoyed this weekend as I was able to sing a real mix bag from Dusty Springfield to Frank Sinarta, Chuck Berry to Little Richard and Julie Andrews and I was even able to get everyone up and dancing to “Chapple of Love” in the Little Chapple at Swanwick Station along with a fabulous 60s band called the “Rapids” They were just great and had just the right sound – I really enjoyed their set It was grat working with you chaps!
A big thank-you to Barry who came along on Saturday and helped me with my equipment and thank-you to everyone at The Midland for putting on the event. Sunday was very busy as they also had a car rally at Stanwick Station and I played both Stations Swanwick and Butterley – so quite abit of moving about but great fun never-the-less. Between you and me I rather like singing Rock and Roll and throughing out the odd Johny B Goode but to say I’ve just been in short skirts this weekend would be something of a lie. Saturday night I was invited to an Edwardian dinner by my friends Anne and Rod Hughes which was just lovely – So I’ve been alsorts this weekend and thank-you to everyone for a great couple of days.
Well I’m just dashing out to the gym now as I want to give my body a good work-out bofore I hit another run of shows. Thanks for dropping in and do Keep Watching Bye for Now!
