A "party before the party" was held at Pirate's Cove before Saturday's CITC - it was supposed to feature music by The Captain and The Kid (Ed and Doug), but with Ed's absence due to illness, The Kid carried on, with plenty of help from the talented phlock and a guy named Daniel who was standingat the bar when we started, but who plays guitar in a local rock bandand played with us for 3 1/2 hours!
Nearly 50 songs were performed, from Beatles to Buffett, from The Singing Nun to Meat Loaf. Our "stars" were accompanied by a karaoke track, as well as by Doug on keyboard and Daniel on guitar, not to mention all the club members who were shakin' stuff like maracas and tambourines.
It was a lot of fun - a very unique night - as the pictures clearly show!!!
Doug, Jan and Karen got things started with some Beatles harmonies ("LOVE ME DO", "FROM ME TO YOU") then Jan sang lead on "MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK" and "MY GUY".
Our new friend Daniel is on the right - he even sang "DON'T LET THE SUN CATCH YOU CRYING".
