Much delayed post that comes in the "Couldn't be arsed at the Time" category. Sorry..but I was nursing Captain Grumpy Knickers and his Man Flu.
Big thank you to all who supported us at our last Pre- Lockdown gigs in the real world.
As usual a tremendous big Thank you to all the lovely people at ALCESTER UNIONIST CLUB who gave us a great night.
Last weekend gigs 13th to 15th March.
WORCESTER SWAN THEATRE on the Black Country Night Out Theatre Tour. A great night despite Allan having a strop with management and spending the rest of the night moaning about being picked on and victimised. I have heard that same mantra since his schooldays at Holyhead Road in Wednesbury. He's just got bigger and uglier..the rest remans the same.
Saturday night we had a lovely social night with our old mate BEV PEGG at BELBROUGHTON VILLAGE HALL. Been there many times. Good to meet Bev's Sound Engineer..Darren. Boisterous crowd but good natured.
Sunday afternoon back over at KINGS NORTON GOLF CLUB for a Private Party.
Thanks to all who have supported us. We hope we can re-schedule all the cancelled gigs and see some of you in the not too distant future. ...
Busy Week this last week. Three gigs. Lots of lovely people to thank.
Thursday we were in a very posh place over at KNOWLE. COPT HEATH GOLF CLUB LADIES NIGHT. The people were very kind to us. Must hae been a Culture shock. Posh frocks at the ready. We were told we could go down and relax in the STUD BAR. Must admit I got over excited...but it was not what the name suggested.😁
Friday we were nice and local. The Chairman (who is actually a woman) of CHASE DISTRICT COUNCIL had asked us to perform at her special Charity Ball for Birmingham's Children Hospital. This was a special night hosted by our friends Councillors Zaphne and Mike Stretton. I had never seen so many chains in one place. Bling abounding. Met a lovely couple from our twinned town of Datteln in Germany who had come over especially for the event. Must have been hard work trying to cope with us and our YAM YAM accents.
Saturday was one of our favourite gigs of the year. One we have shared with SIXTIES STAR MIKE BERRY AND THE OUTLAWS for about the last 14 years. It is a special tribute to BUDDY HOLLY NIGHT over at KINGS NORTON GOLF CLUB. The people are amazing. They make us feel so special. It was a wonderful night and would have been even better if I had not left my gig bag there. Remembered it half way down the Toll Road. Big Nose had to drive us back over there the next day. Guess who is in the Dog Box! ...
Three gigs over the last week or so. Terrible weather conditions for all of them. Big thanks to all of the people who turned out in winds, rain and floods. We hope we were worth it😁.
Last Saturday night over again at BEAUDESERT GOLF CLUB. what better place to be...in the middle of Cannock Chase in very high winds!
Sunday afternoon we were with the good people of WHITTINGTON at the Church Hall. They need new Stage Curtains! The fundraising is on. Once again Margo and Alistair organised the event. Margo and her team of excellent helpers served us with a 3 course meal. That's 110 people. I go into hysterics if I have to prepare my Signature Dish of Fishfinger Sandwich for more than 2 people! Meltdown! Lovely to spend time with them all again. Great crowd as always.
So this Saturday we had Storm Dennis and our annual gig over at NEWPORT BOWLS CLUB. Really awful weather but it didn't deter the audience or our friend Graham. Thanks so much to you all for a great night. Good to meet some of the new people and so pleased you enjoyed it. Relieved to get home all in one piece. ...
What fun we had! Many thanks to Ron for Allan's lovely card and present. The people of HAMMERWICH we have known many years. In fact we tried to move there many years ago...but it was not to be. They are a real community. So many of them have suffered problems over the years but they always stand together and look out for each other and as you can see they are always ready to give it a go and have a laugh. I have put the video on Dandy Comedy-Duo Page. Allan managed to film the other one sideways so these are just frames from it!! ...
HAMMERWICH CRICKET CLUB you gave us another wonderful Saturday night and as promised I am putting on the video and some photos of the night. I hope you were all with the people you should have been with!
As usual we...being DANDY and our great friends ETERNITY DUO aka Nicky and Cliff would like to thank all of you for coming along and supporting us and the club. We understand the money raised on the night will be going to the replacement of new Cricket Nets and the preparation of the ground.
Our thanks also to the wonderful RONNIE BOX who has worked tirelessly for the club over the years and is an amazing Ticket Seller and Organiser.. Thanks also to Dave and the great Bar Staff there. Once again lovely food and a very special night. Hope we can do it again next year. Our love and thanks to you all again. ...
Been on holiday to the sun for a week so a bit late with my Gig-Thanks Diary. January usually a quiet month on the gig front..
Thanks to all at the Caravan Meet we did on 30th December at ASTLEY VILLAGE HALL. Lovely crowd. Thanks to the 2 guys directing Allan as he reversed off the Car Park!!
2 more gigs in January. One was at the SUTTON COLDFIELD CLUB which used to be the Conservative Club. New build. We were in the Basement which surprisingly was really a great room. Worked for the SUTTON COLDFIELD RAMBLERS. Allan was afraid that if they got bored they would go and roam round the Car Park. Great crowd and good to see some friends there.
Last gig of January was back agan over Stourport way at ARLEY KINGS VILLAGE HALL. Beautiful Village Hall and Chris made us very welcome. Had a good night with them.
Thanks to all for their support. ...
