Tonight we played two hours of great music across the genres and decades. We had a number of requests including from Phyl who reminded us that it will soon be Advent and this is the prelude to Christmas. Patrick requested a track that had been a number one for Bucks Fizz, but most of us had forgotten.
Sigrid – Home to you
Pentantonix – Mary did you know – requested by Phyl and loved by Sue who told us that she loved everything by the group.
Bucks Fizz – Land of make believe – requested by Patrick. If you want to see them live, there are two versions of the band performing!
Styx – Babe – Singer Lauren Gowan 63 years old today.
Brother Beyond – The harder I try – band member Eg White 53 years old today.
Talking Heads – Road to nowhere – band member Tina Weymouth 69 years old today.
Blood Sweat and Tears – Got to get you into my life – Jazz bassist Ron McClure has had a varied career. Originally playing with Buddy Rich and on three BS&T albums, he is still playing at the age of 78 years old today.
Jason Mraz – Best friends – loved by the pupils of Ingatestone & Fryerning Junior school.
Lou Reed – Perfect day
Soweto String Quartet – Weeping
Hunter Hayes – Dear God
Diana Krall – Walk on by (live in Rio) – everyone knew the original was by Dionne Warwick.
