Next Thursday, 27th October at 8pm, will see one of our regular jam sessions. No fixed format – just turn up, bring an instrument if you have one, and join in the improvised music-making. You’re free to bring a bottle if you want to.
Our best-attended Open Mic session for some time last night, with a fantastic atmosphere. One highlight of the evening was the Red Boot Band, supporting Matt Alford as he read the final instalment of his tale of intrigue. The next Open Mic will be in two weeks’ time on 3rd November.
Relative sanity returns to the Rec House next Thursday at 8pm with our regular Open Mic night. Format as usual – sign up to perform up to three songs, bring a bottle if you like. All styles and abilities welcome, free entry.
Probably the most hysterically funny evening we’ve held at the Rec House took place last night, as we giggled our way through rounds like “Singing Relay”, “Censored Songs”, “One Song to the Tune of Another” and “Just a Minim”. Many thanks to the panellists Mark, Jason, Scott, Chris and Joel (who stood in for Mark for part of the game). Thanks also to Lisa for keeping score and setting her own impromptu round! We hope to run another of these game shows in the New Year, so if you want to be on the panel or have any ideas for new games, let Guy know. You never know, we might be famous one day…
The Rec House breaks new ground next Thursday, 13th October at 8pm, with our very own panel game entitled “All the Right Notes”. Team captains Mark Lawrence and Scott Wheatley, along with their guests Jason Hardy and Chris Wildridge, will take part in a variety of silly musical games and quizzes, mainly ripped off from various well-known TV and radio shows. There’ll be opportunities for audience participation and for the panellists to turn the tables on the chairman. Free entry as usual, bring a bottle if possible.
A good session at Open Mic last night with many of the regulars in attendance. Next session in two weeks’ time.
Open Mic returns after a three-week break next Thursday, 6th October at 8pm. Just turn up, sign the sheet and perform any three songs you like. Bring a bottle, free entry.
