The Rock-itt : August 2010
well in a versatile repertoire. Performing only with her own guitar accompaniment, Amelia began with Beccy Cole's "Men Don't Dance Anymore" and then tore our hearts apart with her own composition "Our Angel". The band joined Amelia for the remainder of her set, which included "Hell Yeah", "Folsom", "Ring of Fire", "Bootscootin' Boogie" and a fetching rendition of Keith Urban's "Raining on Sunday". Amelia and her family then dashed back to Campbelltown to compete in four finals. Good Luck Amelia. It was good to welcome back the vivacious Kaza and her partner Terry who together make up KazaRay. Kaza has that ability to appear to enjoy everything and it is so infectious you have to love her. They always sing great country songs in such fine fashion, and even did a great version of their own composition "Convoy to Tamworth" which everyone enjoyed. Their other songs included "Blanket on the Ground", Tulsa Time", "Burning Bridges", "Lucille", "The Teddy Bear Song" and "These Boots are Made for Walking". KazaRay enjoyed performing with Ridgie Didge as much as we enjoyed them. Good on you! The ever popular and very entertaining Justin Jay was next and he certainly didn't disappoint this time. Dressed in his sparkling blue shirt and trade mark leather hat and jeans, Justin won everyone with his segment which was full of fun and frivolity. His smile, sparkling personality and outstanding voice always delight his many fans. Justin began, accompanied only by his own superb guitar work, with his John Denver medley. The band joined him on his other winners which included the very cheeky "Show Them To Me". His songs like "It's Too Late (I'm Stuck with You)", "He Drinks Tequila & She Talks Dirty in Spanish", and "Crying" had everyone going but "Hillbilly Rock, Hillbilly Roll" and "Midnight Special" were a riot! His friend Yvonne Barton-Leach with her beautiful voice, added to Justin's sound and Geoff Williams joined them in a spirited performance of the Big O's "Pretty Woman". Calls for his great yodeling style brought the unique "Belrose Best and Less Yodel" about how he learned to use his voice like this. What a voice! WOW! A presentation was made to outgoing secretary Barbara Dunstan in appreciation of her excellent contribution to BCMC over many years. The best way to follow an act like Justin is to introduce back the very popular Carl Sullivan whose musicianship leads the band so well. His excellent country vocals, great guitar and song choice provide the audience with a country music treat and his dancing fans join in with gusto. This time Carl's bracket included Jimmy Buffet's "Sea Cruise", Charlie Rich's "Rollin' With The Flow", Kenny Rogers' "Daytime Friends" and "Buy Me a Rose" and a lively version of Elvis' "Stuck on You" Great Stuff Carl! Before concluding another top class show Geoff Williams sang the Boxcar Willie song "When the Winds of Yesterday Blow on Me" with the band and then everyone joined him in the traditional finale. Highlights of this fun finish were the memorable guitar solo by Mike Back, the harmonica duet from Peter and Carl and Justin and Geoff's harmony yodel. Thanks to all artists and musicians for another terrific concert. Well done! The aim of Belrose Country Music Club is simply "to enjoy country music and foster talent". All artists on each show are pre-booked and are usually arranged well ahead.
