Out of the Blue – Oct 8 and AGM News

Out of the Blue – Oct 8 and AGM News

Read our October newsletter here.   The Club offers a huge thanks to Dianne Morris-Madill and Dale Webb for their efforts over the year(s) in their committee roles and wishes them a happy future .

‘Out of the Blue’ is when something suddenly appears or  arrives in your life unexpectedly. Although not entirely  unprecedented, this grouping of experienced and talented  performers preparing a show for the post covid LFMC/Tsunami concerts is a new venture for all concerned. 

Surprise or not, we are excited to combine the instrumental  excellence of local Kevin Watson on guitar, the smooth vocals of singer/songwriter Gill Allen, the intuitive upright bass and  singing of new Kiwi Christine Lansford, with Levin’s Simon Burgess adding his troubadour skills. 

This hugely internationally experienced group are proficient in  many genres, weaving these skills into a varied program of  jazz, folk, country and originals with tasty vocals and a gypsy  flair. From ballads to gospel, raunchy to smooth, their biggest  problem is not what to play, but what not to play! 

Note: Christine is caught in the USA/MIQ Covid trap and will  not be back in New Zealand for this performance. We are lucky  to have the able assistance of Berndt Reiss to cover for her.

Evening begins with the open blackboard – one item each please – and our guests will play after supper.  Covid regulations per Level 2 will apply if required so numbers may be limited.  Entry fee is $10 public/$5 members.
