Another Night On The Town

Just thought I would throw in a random picture.

On Sunday night Danny and I went out to see some live music in Glasgow. I know, out again, phew that's twice in one month. We don't go out for ages and then it's all over in one month lol. We booked tickets a few months ago to see see Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings 

 When I told my workmates who I was going to see they said who? Made me feel a bit ancient lol. In case you don't know Bill Wyman was in the Rolling Stones.  By the way did you know that Bill Wyman is 75 - yeah I said 75.  How do they do that?  They are touring Britain from 17th October till 2nd December (38 shows). I don't know where they get their stamina from!!!! Can I have some PLEASE!!

The Rhythm kings consist of Beverley Skeete (vocals), Albert Lee (Guitars and vocals), Georgie Fame (Organ and vocals), Terry Taylor (Guitar and vocals), Geraint Watkins (Keyboards and vocals), Frank Mead (Alto, tenor, soprano saxes, flute and harmonica), Nick Payn (Saxophone, flutes and harmonica) and Graham Broad (Drums and percussion). I have only heard of Georgie Fame before but they all played with many famous people in the past. 

Mary Wilson (The Supremes) was also starring - what a voice that lady had, it was wonderful.

I have to say it was very very good and I really enoyed it. They played a mixture of R&B, soul, blues, jazz, country and also a few of The Supremes past hits. 

I really love going to see live music. 
I think I'll have to do some research and see who else we can go and see.

Watch this space.

It sounds like a good night. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.

I love live music but unfortunately circumstances prevent me going to any concerts at the moment.

Take care

Sounds like you had a fun time. I seldom get to concerts but have enjoyed the few I've been to. I love seeing the 'old musicians' in concert. Quite often PBS shows concerts by Bobby Vinton, Roy Orbison (my all-time favorite) and rock and roll oldies. It's amazing to see them still strutting their stuff.

Depending on who it is I love going to a live show. I saw Simple Plan and they were great! Bonnie Tyler was amazing and in Feb next year will see Roxette! Can't wait!

Oh, random picture would be nice Ellie♬♬♬
It sure must have been a nice day. Special Night at Glasgow!!!
Well, we DO have a wonderful big hall which has good acoustics, but not many occasions of singers or stagesas as we wish. Kind of pity.
Hope it's not so cold alredy in Scotland. Haha, having sniffle here.
Much Love, my friend, Orchid*
