It was another busy weekend with our mobile discos. Saturday, 5th March, would see us return to the Giffnock North Club to perform alongside Wayne Topley's Motown Brothers. We had been looking forward to this gig for a while as we had worked with Wayne and the guys when the group played there in 2015. However, things took an unexpected turn when the group arrived on scene and we learned there had been a change to the original line up. Wayne had parted company with the other 2 members of the group and he had recruited 2 new singers. The new guys certainly looked the part but how would they perform?. Would group be as good as good as they had been the previous year?
We started the night off with the disco, playing a range of tracks from the 50's, 60's and 70's as the hall began to fill up. We introduced the Motown Brothers and the group took to the stage looking pretty sharp in their smart black suits and the show began. They started their first set with the unmistakable Temptations hit 'Papa was a Rollin' Stone and it didn't take long for our concerns to dissapear. The guys belted out soul hit after soul hit - all performed brilliantly.
It was back to the disco after the group's 1st set of the evening and the dancing continued as we played a range of party tracks and fitted in some special requests. The club hold a raffle to raise funds to cover the costs of the night - we announced the winners and handed out the prizes. There was just time for a wee 'coin toss' competition for the chance to win a bottle of Laphroaig before the Motown Brothers returned to the stage.
A quick costume change and the group were back on for the 2nd set of the night. The set was well received and they had the whole hall up dancing and singing along to the best of Motown, and a few other party songs added for good measure. Back to the disco and we finished off the night with some chart hits and selected tracks from the 60's. 70's and 80's.
It was yet another great night at the Giffnock North Club. Jim Butler, the social convener, does an excellent job in putting these nights together. It's a great little club with a lot of great people. The atmosphere on Saturday was as friendly as always - everyone seemed to be in the party spirit. The Motown Brothers were excellent. It was a pleasure working with them and we really enjoyed the their performance.
