23rd January…The loyal crowd braved the weather and turned up as always ready for their weekly fix….and the musicians were ready to deliver for two main reasons……………to display their talents and to keep warm………

Frankie “Big Boy” Jay opened up the proceedings with Deggsy,Gerry and Andy (who was ready for his weekly marathon)…..

.….then it was time to ask Rockin’ Eddie to stop doing his press ups in the corner as he prepared to give it large on stage…………and off he went backed by Don,Deggsy and Andy (who was now getting into his stride)…..

….after a none stop session of rock and roll Eddie had to be calmed down… and led off with a blanket over him…it was then time for the ever youthful Nick to give his all backed by Sir Eric.. ..who still fancies himself despite his fading U.S.A.tan…and…you guessed it …young Andy….

….Then through the swing doors (which have been specially fitted) came Texas Tony…Pete and Steve….still covered in dust from their ride across the prairie………they joined Andy (who was showing no sign of weakening) on stage and launched into their songs from the wild wild  west…….

..In the break the crowd were treated to a rendition of “You Raise Me Up” by Ernie,Reg and Ron….who have formed a Westlife tribute band…..called Lowlife………however after three strides forward Don,who was backing them,had to tell them to sit down…. as he couldn’t take any more………..Reg reluctantly walked back to his seat …..proudly displaying,in his back pocket,his tickets for the forthcoming Westlife tour………….sad or what…..

…after the crowd were persuaded to stay the final band rounded off the night as Deggsy,Tony and Don put memories of Lowlife out of peoples minds…as they rocked out big time……another great night with a nice amount raised for the cause…..well done everyone….                               ………… Ronan Keating from Boyzone has been on to us and he said that Lowlife even make HIM sound good…………and we understand that Westlife are now calling it a day.

16th January…… it was a cold night outside…..but inside the guitars were tuned up and the amps and radiators were turned full on so we were once again ready to visit those distant days of rock and roll…..

As always Frankie “Big Boy” Jay…. backed by a bemused Deggsy…Gerry and Andy….launched into a set that even Al Jolson wouldn’t have remembered….with “Little Sir Echo” taking the band completely by surprise…..

.Rockin’ Eddie then whips out his set list from his skin tight jeans and launched into his 50s classics backed by his orchestra – Don,Deggsy and Andy and things were hotting up as Nick entered stage right with Sir Eric who doesn’t ‘arf fancy himself with his U.S.A. tan and new svelte body…..and treated the crowd to a selection of  high density rock and roll with Eric throwing a few cool shapes behind his bass…………..as his set drew to a close the sound of horses hooves could be heard…… as Texas Tony,Steve,and Pete all arrived on the same horse to join young Andy for the country set………by now the crowd were getting a bit over excited…..especially the women……as Don…Deggsy and Tony took to the stage……Don looking slightly disappointed as he thought the wild screams were for him but they were actually for Reg (of The Church Street Choir) as it was revealed that he had tickets for the Westlife tour….yes seriously…..this explained why The Church Street Choir sing along in their seats and stand up for each chorus and walk forward…..yep…it really is pathetic……they need to count the candles on their birthday cakes……..

Another brilliant night with a nice amount raised for the cause….well done everyone…….see you all next week….don’t be late and don’t forget your dancing shoes !!!


It’s a brand new year and we are back to give it large on the Rock and Roll front……we are tuned up and ready to go…so fasten your seatbelts

9th January….it was a cold night but that did not stop the musicians turning up to give the loyal crowd their weekly fix…….

Frankie “Big Boy” Jay did his usual set from the distant past and took the guys who back him each week completely by surprise….and gave them each a small token of his gratitude…..mainly for their bravery in coping with the wide range of forgotten songs he throws at them each week….without which the night wouldn’t be the same…..here he is with his merry men…Gerry…Deggsy…and Andy

Then Nick and his Mojos…Andy on drums and Sir Eric….who had recently returned from The States where he had been performing his royal duties….mainly on the sunny golf courses….and didn’t he like to rub it in!!!

Next…direct from the prairie…Texas Tony was joined by Pete…Steve…and Andy for his country set

Rounding off the night with high quality Rock and Roll we had Deggsy…Tony…and Don who seems to have recovered from his unfair dismissal from Frankie Jay’s band for misbehaviour…..but he did receive a gift from Frankie (probably trying to get back in with him)…..a great night and superb start to the new year….well done everyone…..not forgetting our recent donation to Claire House….which is what we are all about.
