Blues Night

Blues Night turns into full-on rock and roll
11th Hour on the stage at Clayhidon

The prospect of two blues bands drew a crowd of nearly 50 to Clayhidon Parish Hall for what turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The Moosehead Blues Band were first up. Two fine guitarists and an excellent drummer had got together a year ago and this was only their third gig. It soon emerged that this wasn’t just going to be a Blues Night as advertised, as they slipped into classic rock and roll covers and some lovely numbers of their own composition.
After the supper break 11th Hour, two guitarists, a drummer and a keyboard player, who have been together for 13 years, entertained us for an hour. They too sensed the audience favoured rock over blues and they took us through their well crafted collection of adored oldies, from Ain’t No Sunshine to Johnny Be Good and You Ain’t Nothing but a Hound dog. 11th Hour are a terrific band and Clayhidon rocked.
The evening was much enhanced by the sight of two members of the audience, Steve and Jane Beard, dancing in front of the stage giving everyone a beautiful display of jiving.
The hall committee organised a raffle, supper and a licensed bar and made a profit of more than £400.
