Music Night

I have written before of the joys of Music Nights at the CTC (every Thursday night, from 6:00pm). Well, last night was a big night.

A great crowd of people, great musicians, and, as usual good companionship. Of course, we ordered pizzas from Pizzas in the Mist. Thanks, Thomas and Belinda for the good food.

But the music is what it is really about. So many artists, so much good music. BJ, seen at left, shows how to rock it out.

The evening started out with some Rock and Roll, then moved on into some drum (percussion) work, with people banging, shaking or rattling whatever they could find.

Then they moved back into classic songs, lead by people like Steve, or Niall, with Boney backing up on vocal, or harmonica, or from the keyboard. Boney is like that, he can do more than one thing at a time! Melinda did a few songs too, which was great.

I am forgetting to mention the new-comer, Marty, who is obviously a great fan of Lou Reed, but who also sang some original songs too.


Zoe and I did a duet of my favourite song: "Perfect Day" (also a Lou Reed number)


The whole house sang with us (a great feeling), and with all the people with instruments helping out too. It was just great.

Thanks to everybody for your support - vocal, instrumental, and in every other way too. You know what I mean by that, and you know what it means to me!

Celeste and Greg brought the house down with a rendition of "Wild Thing". It was fabulous, and much appreciated by the crowd. Steve then brought the evening to a sentimental close with his rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". It was a great finish to a lovely evening.
