Concert review 28th October 2019 Chris Jones
We must thank Chris for stepping in at the last minute to replace David Lingwood who was unable to attend. Chris brought a Yamaha AR100 organ (personally customised) plus Ketron SD40 Expander Module, used for additional sounds and Rhythms. He provided a full concert with comprehensive variety and while perhaps we take for granted that all our attending artistes are accomplished, we should recognise that Chris at ‘the drop of a hat’ put together a professional evening of entertainment for us. He very much settled in by the second half and the music provided after the interval was even more rounded and entertaining, His humour – camp brought a smile and not a ‘little titter’ as Frankie Howard would say.
1st Half Everything is in rhythm with my heart, Put on a happy face, Somewhere out there, I only have eyes for you, Im in the mood for love, sleepy time girl, Liberty bell march, Sheep may safely graze, me & my teddy bear, the teddy bears picnic, portrait of my love, (Matt Monroe) walk away, someone to watch over me, time after time, say wonderful things to you, (Sung by CHRIS). If I were a rich man, match maker, yellow river, A time for us, Feelings, TV theme selection, I could have danced all night,
2nd Half Orange coloured sky, Any dream will do, Oh bla dee Oh bla da, Deep in the heart of Texas, On the way to San Francisco, roundup, your the cream in my coffee. Chris was called for an encore for which he played. Ethel Merman’s – I’ve got the sun
