Thank you to all who attended last week's Big Mammas
Here is MC John Cordingley's report of the night:
Another great evening at the Roffen with Big Mammas
Door featuring singer Fiona Mc Elroy out front with a great voice and a sexy
wiggle although she did mention that she was not at her best as she was
suffering with a sore throat but it did not spoil the eveningís
performance. Lead guitar by Mal was not in your face and some nice blues and
boogie woogie from Henri on keyboard. Alan in the front row tried to verbally
take on Fiona saying that he could not understand her, he lost, you donít take
on a red headed Irish girl like that, it was all in good fun and we all enjoyed
the evening. It was great to see Richard at the meeting, I think he was checking
up on us to see that Sandra Terry and I are not letting the club down; he said
that he was satisfied so letís look forward to seeing Earl Green next month on
What a great gig, it was fantastic to see you all and to receive
your requests for returns, all of which I have acted upon over the last week or
so with the result that March sees Guy Tortora, April,
the Spikedrivers, September, Geoff Achison and
October, Nicky Moore's Blues Corporation. My only failure was
in booking Ian Siegal, who is very busy in Europe this year.
Maybe next year! Please don't email me with bookings for the
Spikedriver, Achison and Moore gigs until the
month preceding, although reservations may be made for these in person
at the club from the February event onwards.
Which brings us to this month with Earl Green and the
Right Time on Tuesday February 23rd. This act came by
recommendation via founding father John Adams and I have personally seen Earl
sing several times. Earl is, without doubt, one of the country's finest
male blues vocalists, indeed an award winning, world-class performer.
Backing him up is a tight unit of top notch musicians in the form of the Right
Time, so another night of top quality entertainment is guaranteed.
Look forward to seeing you then on the 23rd
February at the Roffen Suite, bookings to me at the return email address
please, tickets £10 each.
