Come and sing your rock n roll favourites at the Half Moon
Elvis would have been 80 this year. Buddy Holly and the Everley Brothers too. But their music from the 1950s and 60s remains embedded in every teenager from that era’s brain.
A few of us were musing on this theme in the Half Moon the other night. Then someone started singing. Then more joined in. What about Rick Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard? And our own Gene Vincent, Tommy Steele and Adam Faith? (Sorry Cliff!). And the ladies – Patsy Cline, Rosemary Clooney, Lesley Gore, Brenda Lee?
More and more songs came to mind. And a more and more people began to sing. And then a more or less unanimous decision was taken to hold A 50s and 60s Karaoke evening on Saturday 6th February. Andrew readily agreed and confessed he knew a man with a karaoke machine. Job done!
So everyone can come in and strut their stuff, perform, listen and enjoy. For the over 50’s, it’s a chance to re-live their teenage years. For the younger set, it’s a chance to hear (and perform) some great vintage music from grandma’s day.
So c’mon everybody! We need solo performers, duos and groups. There will be plenty of microphones. Should be a great party!
Practice your ooo ahs and doobee dooo dahs!
