Lance’s Super Open Mic night did indeed take place on Tuesday 29th October 2019 and was a lovely evening from beginning to end.
I kicked off the event with two of my songs…..’In A Gardener’s World’ and ‘Sadie The Flatulent Horse’.
Mark kindly stepped in to take the second spot. He performed the instrumental ‘Classical Gas’ and covered the Mary Black Song ‘No Frontiers’
Colin, a good friend, who came along to support me, was up next. Not everyone will know that we occasionally perform together as a duo called Tom. He performed ‘Neanderthal Man’ and ‘Sign of the Times” with me on background vocals.
Chris Martin performed two original songs ‘Life’s a Race’ and was joined by Helga on his song ‘Sanity’
Lisa was up next with two original songs “Footsteps and ‘Mid Winter Mist’
Simon performed ‘Halloween Song’ with Greg's help on Saxophone and covered ‘You Don’t Know Me’
Jane was up next and performed ‘Wade In The Water’ and Paul Simon’s ‘Kathy’s Song’
Helga performed two songs on guitar ‘Stormy Weather’ and ‘Blue Bossa’
Keith was up next and assisted by Helga sang two of his songs ‘Baby Steps’ and ‘Tale of two Acorns’.
Clive covered a Julian Lennon song ‘Salt Water’ and ‘Save The Last Dance for Me’
Heather, who had kindly agreed to swap with Lisa to allow Lisa to leave before the end sang Joni Mitchell’s ‘Little Green’ and a tradition Belfast/Irish song called ‘Black Velvet Band’
Penny, who had not been to the 6 Bells for a while performed two songs with Keith providing backing on guitar. The two songs were ‘Bring It On Home To Me’ and Summertime.
The final performer of the evening was John who did Rolling Stones songs ‘Ruby Tuesday’ and ‘Wild Horses’.
Martin Lee played bass on all the songs and sat quietly in the corner.
This was my first open mic and I have learned a few things. Onwards and upwards.
See you all next time
