Guitaraoke !!
03. Jun 2009 at 00:26
 
On thursday 11th June 2009 Colin from the Valetones will be running an 'open mic night cum sing along ' at The Chapel - just Col and his guitar and a few song books - come along and pick your favourite song and join in and sing along - better still bring an instrument and join in, better still get up and play and sing yourself. I'll be 'on stage' ( on my stool at the bar) at about 8.30. Hopefully I may be joined by Ray from the Valetones - so that's two of us already !
If this takes off we'll aim to run this on or about the second thursday of each month. see you there ! Cool

No sorry, no drum kit at the mo. We've got to keep the noise down a bit, hence no amps either - purely acoustic to start with and see how it goes.
If this proves popular and hopefully becomes a regular monthly event, who knows we might start using a small pa and getting slightly noisier. Smiley

OK no probs, but if it does turn into a Jam night, I'd be well up for it.

Thursday was a cracking evening, thanks to all those that came and supported Ray and I - especially the silky vocal tones of John and Garthy - nice to see a few people dancing at the end aswell. Ray and my voices were a bit croaky at the end though - mind you playing and singing for about 3 hours does that to you ! The next one is on Thursday July 16th
Come along and join in ( and give me and Ray a rest !)  Smiley

Thank you, Colin and Ray for the most pleasant evening on Thursday! (only meant to stay for an hour but your music kept us there until well past our bedtime!!!) We will look forward to the next session of serenades on July 16th. Glad to know you plan to make these evenings a regular feature at The Chapel. Smiley

Steady on! Think of the neighbours - especially in summer when we've got the double-glazing open to try and avoid marinading in our own juices!  Tongue

Some of us work funny hours. Early to bed, early to rise and all that sort of malarkey.  Undecided  Cry

Thanks to those brave souls who came along on the 16th Ray and I had a lot of fun playing - we even had groupies at the end of the evening ( thanks Kate and Kim xx )
The next one is on Thursday 20th August.
Had a couple people said they'd like to bring their guitars along and join in and have a go - so why not do it. Oh and promise we won't be very loud so the neighbours can enjoy their beauty sleep! (hee hee )  Smiley

That's nice - ta. Now, if you can just get the shrill women who hang around outside making parting noises until midnight thirty or later to shut the <<censored>> up, all will be tickety-boo!  Lips Sealed

Just a quick reminder that I'll be down at the chapel for another acoustic Jam night this coming thursday 20th August , hopefully again with my old mate Ray from the Valetones playing some songs old and new.
Please feel free to bring along your guitar or whatever other instrument you play and either join in, jam along or play something to entertain us yourself. If not just bring your voice and have a sing along. It's all very friendly and low key and none of the Britains got talent or Pop Idol judges will be there. Fun starts about 8.30 - 9.00 ish. come along and have some fun !  Smiley
