The Rock-itt : December 2010
of songs in top class fashion, while Glen also sings superbly, provides vocal backing and play a mean guitar. Their set included “I Can’t Be Bothered”, “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her”, “Out of Here”, “Already Gone:, “Monkey on a Wire”, “Fine Line”, “Waiting on a Bus” and a great version of “Poor Poor Pitiful Me”. These young musicians are really going places. WOW! Next on the program was a first time performer who has been managing the sound system since Belrose began. Bob Gray was well supported by the band as he gave us a spirited version of Johnny Cash’s “How High’s The Water, Mamma?” The audience gave Bob a thunderous applause and there were shouts for more. You can bet he’ll be back! Good on ya Mate. Brian Ridge continued with a very well received bracket of songs as his swansong at Belrose. Brian is heading for the country to try a new scene. Supported by his band colleagues, Brian sang the linedancers’ favourite “Wait A Minute” and also “Hello Walls”, “Way Out W est in Texas” (yodel and all), “Room Full of Roses” and “Mountain of Love”. Geoff made a presentation to Brian on behalf of the club and thanked him for his substantial contribution as musical director. He will be sorely missed and we wish him well. That remarkable young lady all of sweet sixteen, Ashley Knight, returned for another outstanding presentation of her music. Ashley’s stage presence is stunning and her musical talent sparkled like her dress on this occasion. Taking complete control of the band, Ashley sang a set of songs that the audience loved and the dancers enjoyed. Ashley’s vocal ability competently presents up-beat tunes and is equally comfortable with the quiet ones. “Rock the Country”, “Redneck Woman”, “D.I .V.O .R.C.E. ”, “ Blue”, “Johnny B Goode”, “Queen of Hearts”, “Bye Bye”, “Stupid Cupid” and “Here for the Party” gave us lots of variety from a bright personality who is sure to continue to do well in the time to come. Another first for Belrose was the very appealing and mellow voice of Glen Stewart whose love of country music shows in his performance. Easily working with the band, Glen presented a selection of songs that suited his fine country voice and illustrated his feeling for the genre. Glen’s songs included “Ten Guitars”, “I See An Angel Every Day”, “Walking Piece of Heaven”, “Never Ending Love”, “When Loves Comes Around”, “Am I Losing You”, “All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down” and “Are You Teasing Me”. Glen was joined by Gai Johnson for some of his songs and they sounded beaut. W e look forward to Glen’s return next year. It’s always fun to have the Drego Brothers at Belrose, as their stage presence and close harmonies in their beloved country music show their own enjoyment of singing and this is infectious. W endyl and Gordon work well with the band and their love of Alan Jackson’s songs shines through. This time we enjoyed their unique renditions of “Long Hard Road”, “Old Hippie”, “You’re My Best Friend”, “The Way I Am”, “Living On Love”, “Heartaches By The Number”, “Stoney”, “It’s A Mad Mad World” and their own bio song “Bushland Down Under”. Keep up the fine work fellas! All the artists and musos joined Geoff in the traditional finale with a first time certificate presented to Glen Stewart. Another terrific afternoon made so by the performers, band and linedancers. Thanks to one and all.
