Mark Thompson 27th Sept 2021
Live performance has returned to BOKC, The club welcomed Mark Thompson and his Yamaha EL90 to our stage on 27th Sept 2021. Covid still with us, this first tentative concert brought a not unexpected low turnout but Mark produced an evening of quality music of broad appeal. The interval saw a ‘costume’ change to a lively almost orange suit which alone drew applause from the audience. Mark’s commentary between his music contained much to amuse the audience. and the evening concluded with his call to encore.
27th Sept was amidst the fuel crisis, hopefully Mark found fuel for his return home.
