Geoffs Life After Work !

Memories of my Youth and Marty Wilde et al

Last night I went to a show at our local wonderfully old theatre “The Grand” to see my singing British hero of the late 50,s and 60,s who is still performing live at the grand old age of 78 and he didn,t disappoint ! His guests artistes included the wonderful Mike Berry,talented still Eden Kane and the very lively Mark Wynter all backed up by Marty,s very accomplished Band The Wildcats.The theatre was packed to the rafters with people mostly my age and from that particular era when FUN was in abundance,people were usually polite and life in general was of a happy nature.Marty opened the show with a couple of songs and immediately had the crowd mesmerized. All other singers sang hits that belonged to them.Highlight for me was all our singing different arrangements of hits from the 60,s using acoustic guitars only while the wonderful band had a well earned break.Marty Wilde has ALWAYS been on my list of Stars I wanted to see and I wasn,t disappointed.Blackpool is fortunate to attract great performers from Yesteryear to date and brilliant stage shows are common here at very reasonable prices an my next theatre attraction (unless some other artistes appear) will be the wonderful Christmas Pantomime “Cinderella” and I will joined by another 8 members of my large family (really looking forward to that) “He,s Behind You !”

All throughout the splendid show I sang,clapped, jived (in my mind) and refrained from throwing my underpants on stage.Another great night with hopefully more to come
