The Rock-itt : June 2010
CONCERT 2 MAY 2010 For the first time this show was not held on the last Sunday of the month due to ANZAC day. Also for the first time, there was a new style of beginning, where each band member was introduced onto the stage individually. Bernie Divas took up the drum beat first, followed by George Siedeledai Siedlecki for the bass sound, Peter Elliot then joined in with the rhythm and Alan Ford added his lead guitar. Gary Brown then provided slide sound with Brian Ridge hitting the keys to complete Ridgie Didge and their opening song "San Antonio Rose". Gary and Alan played solos. Al continued the set with "Bob Willis is Still the King" and "Big Ball in Cowtown" and then George delivered "Save the Last Dance" and "Good Hearted Woman" before Brian concluded the bracket with "Wait A Minute". Thanks fellas, this set the scene for a great day. Rosalie Mackay had been revising the dance "Wait a Minute" at her classes so when Brian and the band played "Wait a Minute" Rosalie and her linedancers all rushed to the floor to dance and enjoy this great fun dance. Rosalie also included some of their favourite dances during the dance bracket like "Sweet Silver Angels" "Let's Start Living" "Some People" & "Sister Kate" . There was plenty of linedancing all afternoon, between and during the performances. It was a top effort by all the linedancers. Bob Brown, a very experienced musician and vocalist, chose to take the stage by himself with his own guitar accompaniment and a set of backing tracks. Bob's songs were delivered in fine vocal style and were appreciated by the crowd. They included "Where am I Gonna Live", "Take This Job", If I Said You Al and Geroge of Ridgie Didge backup band The Harrisons Bob Brown The Brothers 3 Shardyn, Tayzin and Makirum
