Concert review 18th Dec 2017 – Steve Hubble
Well what a to-do? Nearly the Christmas concert that never was. We arrived intending an early start to accommodate the Christmas festivities only to find Mountnessing hall had no power. No one had told the committee or any of us that the hall had a system that cut power on excessive noise. This had been tripped at the last event in the hall. Eventually we found the hall caretaker and all was reset.
Steve Hubble’s concert; very well applauded, much humour and yes from his play list we knew it was Christmas. He stylised his music by introducing his own arrangements of recognised pieces. Expressed opinions were that it was a very good concert. Just a flavour of the music we heard. Gabriel’s Oboe, Grease lightning, the theme from the film – Ice Castles, Switched on Bach, I’ve got you under my skin, A Pans Pipe style rendition of, The lonely shepherd, Tom Jones’s ‘Just help yourself’, The look of Love, A Christmas assortment began with Steve’s favourite, Barry Manilow’s ‘Because its Christmas’, It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Slay Ride’ The Snowman’ Jingle Bell Rock, Santa Claus is coming to town, Silent night, Winter wonderland. The theme from the Christmas film – Home Alone, Chris Rea’s, Driving home for Christmas.
Jean and her team provided an assortment of Christmas fare for our enjoyment during a shortened interval this. It was a good evening!
