A blast from the past

That eving Keith & Sue along with Ken & Barbara were at the Austin Club for a charity evening in aid of Cancer Research UK. The room was packed and there was a great line up of talent. The show started with two local boys named Darren & Darren who went through a wide range of songs. Then we had the Fourmost, a band from the sixties. Among a lot of songs they performed their hit single "Hello little girl" which nowadays would require a CRB check before it could be sung.
After a tremendous raffle and Grand Draw we had a demonstration of Ballroom Dancing and then the main act, Hermans Hermits, minus Herman or Peter Noone as we oldsters know him. They were a really proffessional outfit and had the dancefloor packed. A bit disappointing that they only performed 3 Hermits hits but we think there may be a copyright problem. Still a great night and a successful fundraiser.
