The Cheltenham Club Harrogate (1967 - 1969)
60's Soul and RnB Vinyl Night Ripley Live

13th November 2021

"It's The Same Old Song   ................"

That may be.

It's also true something will always stay reassuringly the same.

It's awesome seeing all the sisters standing on their own two feet doing for themselves, hopping and bopping away to the authentic sound, the spirit and the rhythm of 60's Soul and RnB in the acoustic rich Ripley Hall.

It's equally awesome to see most of the chaps forgetting to put their Strictly dancing shoes on, retreating to a small corner nursing their pints looking on helplessly and haplessly, hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.


Those were the days.


You can't make memories like that anymore.


It was particularly joyful seeing a modern day equivalent of The Waltons with 3 generations of womenfolk playing together and staying together, their menfolk looking on with pride, tapping their feet under the table with quiet dignity but always with gusto.

A jolly good evening.
