Concert review 23rd April 2018 Andrew Nix
Another good concert with our Artiste for the night Andrew Nix. The audience numbers for the evening were disappointing perhaps due to another event, Seacroft. It was also the first night for the club renewals for 2018 – 2019.
True to the character portrayed in descriptive comments about Andrew, he did have a true Yorkshire sense of humour very much in evidence throughout the evening. We enjoyed a ‘two for the price of one’ evening with Andrew as both keyboard musician and comedian. Some of the music we herd included. With sword and lance, a buddy holiday medley, a medley of traditional Irish songs, When Irish eyes are smiling, Fire Dance, and an Irish gig. Then there was you, a Sigmund Romberg Medley, Music Box Dancer, Pretty Face Polka, and the Lambeth Walk. After the interval we heard the Beer barrel polka, Roll out the barrel, Good Morning Good Morning, Somewhere over the rainbow, wedding of the painted doll, Impossible dream, A Beatles medley including Money cant by you love, Yesterday, Hey Jude, then Fly me to the Moon and finally a Dixieland medley. There were calls from the audience for even more and so on the spot of the moment Andrew produced a medley of snippets from many other well known tunes. In all a very good evening.
Andrew’s instrument was a Roland Atelier
