THE BLACK COUNTRY ACCORDION CLUB
MONDAY AUGUST 28TH Here we are again, that time of the year when the annual holiday period strikes, unpredictable weather creates confusion and we have a guest night. There were mutterings and rumbles of discontent regarding the club adhering to our calendar of meeting on the fourth Monday each month even though this clashes with Bank Holidays. A period of 2-3 years evolved before members were able to remember this fact but when we had FIVE Mondays in the month can one imagine the confusion, yes, we meet on the FOURTH Monday, not always the last Monday each month. This matter will be on the agenda in November at the AGM. Members will no doubt realise that we had a very poor turnout on this meeting. We still had to pay the rent etc. and the guest artist and this meant that there will not be any charity donations this month. The meeting went ahead as usual with the guest artist, the ever popular Jovan Rnjak, turning up promptly with a smile on his face.
Club member Paul Hobbs with his accordion, assisted by Roy Nock on the drums opened the concert with a pleasant selection of relaxing tunes. Jovan then began his show with a series of accordion classics including La Sczarda followed by Dizzy Fingers and The Godfather Theme. This programme was an excellent selection of of popular music that we were all familiar with. Jovan invited Roy to accompany him for a number of tunes.
Following the break Jovan began with a selection of songs that he invited us to join in with him. He really enjoys singing the Tom Jones favourites and so did the audience. He completed the performance with some old favourites like Smile and Twilight time. A really enjoyable evening with Jovan. A shame that he had such a small audience to entertain.
