THE BLACK COUNTRY ACCORDION CLUB
DECEMBER 17th. XMAS PARTY
Party time again and members and visitors turned out in force to enjoy the
festivities. The guest artist was Anton. a local lad renowned for his singing.
Anton’s speciality was his Pavarotti style tribute songs but due to a rather
Xmas congested programme he had to rest his voice and chose to sing popular
songs for us.
Members and guests alike were welcomed with a ‘glass’ of ‘champers’ and many
of them came bearing gifts, (raffle prizes) which enabled us to have a super display
of quality prizes on the raffle table.
Our own John Shelley began the evenings entertainment with a selection of
popular tunes followed by Anton who sang us throught to the interval.
The ‘kitchen staff’ did the club very proud with an excellent table of goodies.
A round of thanks is due to them, as we know that they had spent most of the day
cooking and preparing the food.
After the interval John Mason began his ‘comedy act’ with his pride and joy, his very
own Magieca accordion. Wearing a glistening showman’s top hat he demonstrated
the amazing accordion and earned a great round of applause. John is rapidly getting
the hang of this amazing instrument and raises an awful lot of cash for local charities.
He raised more laughter with his pet ‘ferret’ which was rather naughty.
Barry and Roy, the drummer, then did a rousing spot with a selection of tunes and
sing-alongs. With a nicely warmed up audience Anton was able to finish the evening
off in style. A very pleasant night with varied entertainment, good food and a happy
audience leaving in a festive mood, handshakes and good will all round.
Monday January 28th.
The club’s Birthday again and we shall have a party. Everyone is invited.
will be here to join in the fun. Food and Frivolity for all will be the
theme for tonight. Roman has been here before and we enjoyed him so much as he is a
great entertainer, a singer with a fine baritone voice and a fine accordionist, and that is the
reason why we have invited him back again.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE AND MANY THANKS FOR ALL
THEIR HELP AND SUPPORT DURING 2012
