The Rock-itt : November 2010
26 October Concert Our backing band took the stage with Geoff Williams, who introduced each player individually, John Fitz on drums, Terry Davies on bass guitar, Peter Elliot on rhythm guitar, Alan Ford on lead guitar and Nick O’Neill on pedal steel. It was a big welcome for Garry Wade from Macarthur Country Music Club for his introduction to the band on his keyboard. Co-host Deb Kennedy-Holmes also joined in the introductions with Geoff as he sang the Belrose Song, before singing “I recall a Gypsy Woman” and “The Green, Green Grass of Home”. Peter presented “Walking the Floor over You” and “On a Bad Day “. Alan took out the opening set with “Honky Tokin’”, “Think of Me” and an instrumental close out of “40 Miles of Bad Road”. Top Start! Rosalie Mackay took over with her linedancing session after the Bands opening bracket in which Rosalie and the In Line Boots line dancers danced some old favourites such as “I Love a Rainy Night” “Dancing In White” & “Boogie Woogie” which was extremely fast to Al’s song “Honky Tonkin”. Rosalie selected a mix of old and new dances, one of which was “Come Dance With Me” which had Gwen Hunt rushing to the floor saying, ‘Oh, this is my dance’. (It has always been one of Gwen’s favourites). She also revised her Easy Intermediate dance “Ding Dong” that she had taught the previous month. It was (as always) a very popular segment with a large crowd taking to the floor. The afternoon was packed full of great songs from all artist enabling Rosalie to easily select dances for the line dancers to do. A large proportion of the crowd is made up by the line dancers and it’s great to see them getting plenty of dancing. It’s not only fun but spectacular! Thanks to Rosalie & In Line Boots. The first performer on the program was the vivacious young Aimee Hannan who is a member of the Macarthur Country Music Club. Aimee blended her powerful and appealing vocals with the band and wowed the audience with a great bracket of country songs which allowed everyone to sing with her or dance, or both. Aimee’s segment included “Your Cheating Heart”, “A Beaut Gospel Medley”, “Crazy”, “W hy Haven’t I Heard From You”, “W hose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under”, “Where the Murray Meets the Darling” and “Suds in the Bucket”.
