Friday 15th November – Mix and Match Disco with D.J. Ash.
Well it’s that time of year again as the Cley Village Hall fund raising disco rolls into town once more and lifts us up from the possible onset of wintry despair, cold November rain and black night blues. We’re gonna to party – All night long? Well, maybe not all night, as I’m sure we will bring the curtain down before the midnight hour via a crash diet of Four Seasons in One. So perhaps we’ll ‘Spice up your life’ as we ‘Burn Baby Burn’ and ‘Get on up like a sex machine’ but I’m sure we’ll be All Saints at heart when the last few sparks of life quietly fade away into the night…..So tell your friends ‘cos it’s gonna be a great night of beer/wine etc. all at sensible prices, and even better company with a great mix of disco/dance music to suite all tastes as the D.J. picks up on the vibe and goes with the flow, special requests included.
Go on take the risk and with nibbles up for grabs too don’t loose the chance for a Viennese Whirl, a Swiss Roll or maybe even the chance to swing like a Portuguese tart….and you never know – you might even enjoy it.
Doors and bar from 8pm ’til late, disco from 8.30, nibbles ’til they run out – £5.00 entry.
Friday 5th July Live music with ‘Dove and Boweevil Band’ – now TAKE THAT!
So – hopefully the ‘TAKE THAT’ wording will grab you enough so as to encourage you to read this article, where upon you will then see the connection being revealed. Basically, the multi talented Lauren Dove lead singer with the ‘Dove and Boweevil Band’ is no stranger to keeping good company and only fairly recently (the back end of May) shared the stage at Carrow Road, Norwich in front of 30,000 people singing in the Invidia Voices Rock and Soul Choir along with some band called TAKE THAT! Lauren Dove certainly is one very talented young lady indeed who also happens to be choir leader at ‘The Heartland Delta Singers’, plus a well respected professional vocal trainer and a wonderful singer in her own right too….multi talented is an under statement.
Her partner in this band for the Cley show will be the brilliant Norwich guitarist Mark Howes (aka Boweevil) who has teamed up with Lauren in ‘Dove and Boweevil’ for several years now, so they sure know how each other tick musically – as this show will prove. Mark himself comes with a good pedigree having been a member the past 2/3 years in fast rising Modern Country band ‘Sam Coe and the Long Shadows’ who we have had on two occasions here at Cley and right now Sam and her band are touring the length and breadth of Great Britain. He also plays in the highly rated Roots/Americana group ‘Vaga Band’ and somehow manages to fit in live performances along side West Norfolk’s Yve Mary B. who two years back featured here at the annual Hog Roast for a sell out event. Only just recently he and Lauren performed a sell out show at Norwich Arts Centre for a ten year reunion gig with band ‘Modatta Funk Explosion’ – are these guys the bee’s knees or what? Always busy and bang on the money these two are the real deal for sure and we are very lucky indeed to be getting them with their band here at Cley as a fund raiser and social event for this village hall.
The full Dove and Boweevil Band will be turning up the heat for this show with a great mix of gospel, soul, funk, jazz and swampy blues and bringing some well being upbeat vibes for a show to maybe perhaps shake a leg or just sit back, bathe in the moment, relax and enjoy depending on your mood.
An added bonus will be free nibbles provided on the night, doors and bar from 7.30pm, band on 8.30 ’til late, £8.00 entry.
So HAPPY DAYS it is then as this show promises to be just a little bit special – help keep music live here in North Norfolk – STAY OUT NOT IN!
Jonathan Webster – Cley.
