The Rock-itt : November 2010
Seaforth Bowling Club really rocked on another great night. Congratulations to John Clement for putting such a fantastic show together. The newly formed band ‘The Seaforth Knights’, comprising Alan Ford on lead guitar and vocals, George Siedlecki on bass and vocals and John Fitz on drums opened the show with two classic country hits from the 60’s: ‘Six days on the Road’ and a great instrumental rendition of ‘Forty Miles of Bad Road’, the latter of which Alan dedicated to Pennant Hills!! The Harrison’s were next, a brother and sister duo from Schofields , Glenn plays lead guitar and backup vocals to Kaylee who plays rhythm guitar and sings with a beautifully emotive voice. They opened their set with a Terri Clark number ‘Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me’ followed by an original ‘Waiting on a Bus’ proving they can not only sing great harmonies but also write great songs. Next was ‘American Honey’ before it was Glenn’s turn to lead the vocals with ‘Eliza Jane’ which also gave him a chance to demonstrate his virtuosity playing the guitar. Kaylee once again sang the lead vocals with their next song, a Miranda Lambert number, ‘White Liar’ before they finished their set with the upbeat ‘Say That You Love Me’. Judging by their performance and the audience’s appreciation this young couple have a long way to go in the industry. Glenn then remained on stage with the band backing the other artists – his support was very much appreciated by all. Ashley Knight was next on stage, Ashley has made several appearances now at Seaforth and it has been wonderful to watch this talented 16 year old grow with confidence each time she performs. She opened her set with Shania Twain’s ‘Rock This Country’ followed by a Tammy Wynette number, ‘D.I .V.O .R.C.E’. Then her version of ‘Red Neck Woman’ had the audience up on their feet rocking and rolling. Ashley eased the pace a little with her next song, a beautiful rendition of ‘Blue’ before launching into ‘Last Name’. An old favourite ‘Queen of Hearts’ was followed by the Led Zeppelin number ‘Communication Breakdown’ before another oldie but goodie, ‘Stupid Cupid’ Ashley finished her set with ‘I’m Here for the Party’ and judging by the number who sang and danced along with her, so were the audience! The next performer was a new twist to the norm for the Seaforth Cabarets, Steve Hoskins is a comedian who has only been performing stand –up comedy for a year recently winning the Laugh Garage Comedy Clubs ‘Up & Comer’s’ competition. Together with his pianist Giles Hurst they perform as ‘Mocca & Bob’. After his opening patter Steve sang a very humorous version of an old John Williamson Classic ‘True Blue’ changing the lyrics to suit our multi- cultural society. Steve then peremptorily dismissed his pianist and kept the audience giggling at his jokes until the interval. Before welcoming the next artiste on the stage John took the opportunity to thank Ashleigh’s father Steve Knight for his video- taping of the concerts and then embarrassed Steve further by informing all that it was his birthday and had the band play ‘Happy Birthday’ – many happy returns Steve. Jenni Vee who performed at the inaugural Seaforth Cabaret made a welcome return to the stage. Jenni showed no signs of suffering from jet lag after her recent trip to America opening her set with a lively rendition of ‘Let it Rip’ followed by ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’. Jenni then gave us a haunting rendition of the Roy Orbison classic,
