Some Club Day specials—by our members


  Bob Yuill and Bruce King make a great duo on organ and piano.
They make it look easy, switching between keyboards.

Much hilarity when Linda with blacked out teeth sang "All I want for Christmas is my two front teef!"

Who could this be?  Dusting the organ and playing (so well) "Sadie the cleaning lady".  Why, no — it's Bruce P.
