The Rock-itt : October 2010
Last Concert -- 29th August 2010 In the new style of beginning each show MC, Geoff Williams introduced Ridgie Didge members individually as they constructed the Belrose song. John Fitz was joined first by Peter Eliot on the rhythm guitar and then George Siedlecki took up the double bass before Brian Ridge added his keyboard sound. Then, after Al Ford joined in with his lead guitar, Nick O'Neill came in with his pedal steel feeling. It is great credit to the boys and Brian's leadership that their regular playing together and careful organisation, means they sound better every show. A terrific combo! Nick led the team with an instrumental version of "Waltz Across Texas" and then George sang "Thing" and "You are my Sunshine" with harmonies from Al and Pete who continued with "Have I told you lately that I love you" and "The Wayward Wind". Al took over with "Big River" and "Right or Wrong" in western swing fashion. They all joined in to complete the set with "Detour". Good on you men!! Great Start! Rosalie Mackay had the dancers on the floor dancing to the bands opening bracket with some old favourites like "Waltz across Texas" "Hey Hoalina" "Stroll along Cha, Cha" & "Smokey Places". During Rosalie's linedancing bracket she taught a great little Easy Intermediate dance that she had choreographed called "Ding Dong" which the dancers enjoyed and applied during the full afternoon of dancing. Some of the other dances enjoyed during that session were "Cunnamulla Strut" Cowboy Hustle" "Some People" "Louisiana Swing" & "What Next". Rosalie was also able to choose a good selection of dances for the linedancers to do during Carl's and Gary Brown with Hunter & Suzy Owens and Jason Lee's performance during the afternoon. Some of the dances were "Baby Dream" "Western Cha Cha" "One Good Reason" "Hey Good Looking" "Bottle It Up" "Ding Dong" & "Little Fiesta" just to name a few. If you wish to start Linedancing this is the best time each show, as Rosalie sometimes teaches a beginner dance just after the bands opening set. Carl Sulliv an Hunter and Suzy Owens Jason Lee
