Great Yarmouth

Posted on

Great time had by all at St Nicholas’ Great Yarmouth last Saturday.  We haven’t played anywhere with a six-second echo before – and no feedback, squeals or howls (thanks Pete!)
We must have done something right, they have asked us back in September!

Two for Two!

We had a great time at Runcton Holme last Saturday night.  And as if that wasn’t enough for you, we are playing again this Saturday at St Nicolas Church in Great Yarmouth.

There will be various bands playing, kicking off at 7.30.  We will be on at around 9.30, so we hope to see you there!  This event is in aid of church funds, and you can buy tickets on the door for £6.

Toftwood Social Club Night

Posted on

The Starbeats at Toftwood Social Club – Saturday 11th July.

A good time was had by all last night.  The dancing started with ‘Drive-In Show’, a less well-known Eddie Cochrane song (Mervyn claims that you will not hear this one played by anyone else), and continued throughout the first set.

The second set kicked off with ‘My Little Girl’ and the dancing continued.  There was even vocal participation from some of the audience on the Kink’s ‘Tired of Waiting’ and John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’!

‘Lucille’ and ‘Rip it Up’ set the scene for the third set, which continued at ever faster pace with the likes of ‘Summertime Blues’, ‘Poison Ivy’ and ‘Surfin’ USA’, only slowing down at the end the evening with ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’.

A great night – come and see us at our next gig – Alderman Peel High School in Wells-next-the-Sea on 15th August…
