Songs and Music night - 17th June 2018.
A really good night, thanks to some excellent performers! Joining the Poppy crew of Phil Preen, Dave Walters, Juliet Woodin, Ally Turner and Mary Smith were Rick Dyzon, Ian Price, Trevor Marriot, Milli Galgut, Dave and Janet Coleman (and friend – sorry, I didn’t get to ask her name), Yvonne Dreyer, Maureen and Les, Malcolm Goodall, Sam Shemmell, Jessie Desai, and most of the Phil Langran Band – Phil, Alistair Bloomfield and Steve Benford. Nice to have several visitors who came simply to be there and enjoy the night, including Pat Shore and Val Chadwick.
There were lovely spots from the two bands – Phil Langran’s and AJAR (Ally, Juliet & Rick), but it was really good to hear some nice, impromptu collaborations – something that happens quite rarely but is a real treat when it does! We had Dave Coleman’s guitar accompanying Milli Galgut; Milli singing and playing with Juliet; Milli and Juliet joining Phil Langran’s Band for a couple of tunes; Steve Benford played along with Juliet and Milli; and (OK, stretching a point here …) Trevor lent Dave Coleman his cappo! 😊
