Morning all, Typical bank holiday weather it's p***ing down here. I've got a lot of cleaning,washing, and ironing to do today,neglected the place due to all the work I've had,suits me tho I very rarely go out weekends. Hope you enjoyed the show SB. lyn, cook your brother slowly, he'll be more tender.
Good Morning John and everyone. Sorry to hear it;s raining your way John, none here yet but it's very grey. The Rocking Berries Show last night was Terrific. It' was a real history lesson in 60 & 70s music.they started off with a few Beach Boys numbers which they carried off really well, even the high notes in the harmonies and considering the singer Geoff Turton is 67 that's no mean feat. apart from their own hit's of course they covered loads of old memory joggers by the likes of Roy Orbison, the Fortunes, The Ivy League, Del Shannon and others, even The Beatles. I must say everything they did was every bit as good as the originals. A real surprise was The Walker Brothers - The Sun ain't gonna shine anymore. not forgetting The Walker brothers had an Orchestra, The Rockin Berries had three guitars and drums, It was brilliant. A newer member of the Berries is Rick Price a former member of the Move and Wizzard, so there were a few move and Wizzard numbers of course. along with the memories and humour from the band it was great entertainment. we got to meet the band after and that finished the evening off nicely. All in all it was a great show to be well recommended. Solihull library theatre is a great little venue and at £15 each it was really good value. SB
