OUR LATEST FRIDAY GIG, HELD ON FRIDAY 6th. APRIL :-

Hot on the heels of our Easter Monday bash came the 6th. April gig. A good crowd, a few faces missing, but we still had a good 'un!! 

Con Club Cash Raffle time, and Nula's winning streak continued, taking first prize. Sue had second prize, with Keith, Cheryl, Del and Ken having the rest of the envelopes. Happy days!! 

As always, we thank our Gwen for running the door, Alan, Jane and the bar squad for their efforts and help. And a big thanks to all of you who supported us on the night.

We are back in 2 weeks, on the 20th.

It's all about the music.

Keep a-rockin' - Con Club rockin'.

Catch up soon.

Rockin' Maurice. 


OUR SECOND EASTER MONDAY ALL DAYER :-

Well............ We thought we'd try it again as last year's Easter Monday bash was that good. And we were not disappointed. Unfortunately the Blazin' Aces were unable to play. The Sun Rayz stepped in at 6 days notice and the rest is history, as they say. 

We kicked it all off at 4.00pm - in fact it was a tad before that!! The Rockin' Machine had the gang on the floor leading up to the Sun Rayz first set which went down a storm.  Well done Terry, John, George and Gary...... oh, and young Jake, busily breaking strings on his double bass!!

We certainly had a big crowd turn out to support us, with plenty of basket meals served as the tills constantly rang away!! Drinking weather.

Back to the Rockin' Machine for a while before the band's second set - another cracker.

Next came our very generous cash raffle which saw 8 prizes claimed, with Alan B taking the biggie, closely followed by Nula. Lin won a couple of prizes, with Kerry, Lesley, Tom and Mark joining in the winning. Well done you lot.

This was followed by our Peter Read auctioning a couple of Elvis tops for charity. A three figure sum was taken - what a generous and compassionate gang we are. Lovely people. 

A few more digital tracks and the band were ready for their last set. As a bonus Big Kev got up and sang with our band, keeping his hand in. Well done Kev. A couple of encores, a few Rockin' Machine tracks, and a couple of slowies, and that was that!! What a fantastic day.

Big thank you's to everyone who supported us on the day, and to the Sun Rayz, our Gwen at the door, the wonderful bar team, Carol and her band of caterers and waitresses, plus Alan, Jane, June, Jeffers, and all the others in the cast of thousands who helped make the day such a success. What a superb team!!!

Take care y'all.

Stay cool, keep calm and keep rockin'!

Rockin' Maurice.

SOME ROCKIN' MEMORIES:-:- 


  Here's one for the not-so-young amongst us.  Were you at the London Rock 'n' Roll Show in August, 1972?  Below are a few of the lads walking up Wembley Way.  We were all from Chelmsford and Braintree area.  On the bill were Jerry Lee, Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Bo Diddley plus supporting cast.  Happy days!
