The Rock-itt : August 2010
What a great night on 30 July-- the band rocked and the girls all looked gorgeous and sang beautifully. John Clement, who works tirelessly organising these cabarets, once again compeered the show, and introduced George Sich and his band. They opened with an instrumental 'Sleepwalker' followed by their rendition of Willie Nelson's classic 'Blue Eyes'. Ashley Knight then joined them on stage and 'Let it Rip'. Since her last performance here in February Ashley has continued entering different competitions taking out a 3rd in the open songwriter's category of the Macarthur Country music awards. Ashley has also reached the 2nd round of the Talent Development Project (TDP) auditions, the TDP helps young Australians realise their dreams by providing support and opportunities in the entertainment industry. Her rendition of 'Stupid Cupid' had the dancers up on the floor where they stayed for the rest of her set as she rocked the house with 'Why Haven't I Heard From You', 'Johnny B. Goode', 'You better Run' and finishing with 'I'm Here for the Party' which had the audience shouting for more. George and the band then played 'Walking after Midnight', 'Fall in Love' and finished the first section with an original of Georges 'Got a Little Drunk' which has recently been released on his EP- 'True Story I Swear'. During the band break Glenn and Kaylee, 'The Harrison's', sang 3 acoustic numbers with Kaylee on vocals and Glenn playing guitar and providing backup vocals. 'Waiting For a Bus' is an original written by Kaylee after suffering from a broken relationship (how many great numbers have been written under these circumstances!!!) This was followed by another original 'Outta Here' to give the audience a sample of the numbers they are preparing to release on an EP. Glenn and Kaylee finished with Linda Ronstadt's 'Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me', leaving the audience looking forward to hearing more of them at our next show in October. Amelia Richards was next, Amelia has been very unwell for the last two weeks but being such a trouper was determined to perform though cutting down her set to 3 numbers. The first two were performed acoustically, 'Raining on Sunday' and 'Our Angel'. The latter is an original of Amelia's written with the help of George Sich with which she won the South Coast song writers award. It was written for her cousin Rebecca who suffers from a lung disease and certainly brought a lump to many throats. Amelia then brought the band and the smiles back with a great rendition of the Brookes and Dunne classic 'Boot Scooting Boogie' which had all the line dancers up and kicking. Jemma Beech followed Amelia and gave us a sparkling performance singing 'Some Days You Gotta Dance', 'Try a Little Kindness', 'Big Wheels Keep on Turning' and finishing her set with 'My Favourite Boyfriend'. It is wonderful to see how much Jemma has grown in confidence and maturity on stage.
