Graham Corbould returns to OLC, but this time with a difference. The man who’s always a popular draw whether playing solo or as the older half of ‘The Oakland Brothers Duo’ will be staging his Kinks Akoustic One-Man-Show, playing & paying tribute to his musical heroes Ray Davies & the Kinks with songs, stories & anecdotes…which he describes as ‘not just a dry lecture’ but humourous ..Upbeat and entertaining,.. & a great sing-along… not just for die-hard Kinks fans.
As Graham has a large amount of material & we want to give him a chance to include some vaudeville & variety without taking up all day & all of the night, they’ll be no keeping him waiting with a support act.
But we will open up with some 40 minutes of floor spots & it would help to bring back the good times if performers can come armed with a snappy song or poem, from or about the swinging sixties (but nothing by or about the ‘Muswell Hillbillies’ because that’s set aside for Graham).
Don’t feel afraid. Carnabetion wear will be optional, but they’ll be no ban on frilly nylon panties with both polka-dots & stripes acceptable & you can come dancing too.
We hope to be lazin’ on a sunny afternoon in the club garden sippin’ up real ales & craft ciders for which the Club is a leading member of the Preservation Society. We can also supply Prosecco, but it won’t necessarily taste of Cherry Cola unless specifically ordered in advance.
If the summers all gone, & there’s a conspicuous lack of sun, we’ll move it into the Club Hall & may produce some Toasted Buttered Current Buns by way of compensation.
They’ll be a hat collection in cash to both pay Graham his bus fare home & also help clear the club’s debt for the recent repairs to the cracks up in the ceiling & the leaking kitchen sink. The Minimum recommended contribution is £5 with allowances made for anyone deep in debt + a £1 extra charge to non-club members. Dig deep & then all sit & watch the money go round.
The club bar is open from 12.00 for drinkers.
