A good sized audience turned out for our August concert with Jon Smith. Jon played a great evening of very varied music in his own inimitable style. He opened the evening with a Nat King Cole medley, or "muddly" as he calls them! There was then some music from the Kurt Wunderlich era. He had his Yamaha Genos intrument as well as the Yamaha Stagea and he played a number of piano pieces on the Genos during the evening. The first of these interludes included "Misty" followed by a Dusty Springfield number and concluding with "Sway". We then turned to the Theatre Organ and a medley which included "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square." He concluded his first half with appropriately "Tea for Two".  

 

The second half got off to a rousing start with a great performance of "Sweet Caroline" as part of a big band medley. There followed a couple of lovely Tangos before we had another session on the piano with "You'll Never Know" and "It had to be You" and a dedication to our audience of "Young at Heart"!  We were then treated to some spontaneous Country Music. More piano music followed with "I Didn't Want to do it" and "Love Letters in the Sand" and "Tiger Rag". A Latin American medley was followed by Jon singing "I've Got You Under My Skin"  as he played the piano and he concluded the evening singing "Unchained Melody" as per Elvis in the current film "Elvis". It really was a great evening's entertainment which was greatly appreciated by our audience.
