More on the NCRO @ Trinity Church

A sparkling Christmas tree, sparkling instruments and a sparkling performance!!
A packed programme included some brand new numbers. "Let me be the first" & "Red hot Mama" was followed by a nice clarinet solo by Steve Andrews in "Someday Sweetheart". "Paddling Madeline home" & "Washing dishes with my sweetie" included a bari sax solo and vocal from Jim McBriarty. Caroline Irwin sang "I'm a dreamer" then came "I'll never be the same" with a trio comprising banjo, violin and clarinet. Marilyn Monroe's "I wanna be loved by you" was next. The first half ended with "Kiss and make up", "Not on my list" and "Doing the new low down" as featured by Twiggy in the 60's film The Boyfriend.
After the interval "Putting on the Ritz", "Crazy Quilt" & "Only You" with Keith Stephen and Caroline. Next came "Charlie my boy", "Reindeer rag", "After you get what you want you don't want it" &"Varsity Rag" featuring Jim McBriarty. " You'll be surprised" with Caroline vocals - ending with "Make fun for you".
Newcomer Alan Marshall (sax & clt) fitted in well with the band for his first time performance. It was a good sized audience with some folks in the upstairs balcony. A lovely venue, good acoustics and overall a pleasant night out
