The Goodfoot Band @ 1812 14 OctI start the evening well with a close friend’s 30th; Georgie Porgies do a good spread of food at their eat all you can buffet. Then on to 1812 where The Goodfoot Band are strutting their funk thing. I love what these guys do so much, yes its covers in the main, but they make a party go with a lick and are great for this bar, where we’re all up for a bit of jiggin’ & jostlin’. Vicky has the most amazing voice, that barely needs amplification (as best shown last night). In this environment she excels, as do the rest of the band.

Disco's Out (Murder's In) @ Cellar Bar 14 OctThe Goodfoot finish their first set, so I scoot over to see one of my favourite bands, Disco’s Out (Murder’s In) at the Cellar Bar.  It’s also Si Crockett’s last ever last night – him and his best mate Jon Pearson are off to Thailand tomorrow.  So there’s a lot of happy sadness going on, with the party band of all party bands.  Having said that, DO(MI) are deficient in numbers tonight, Lyndsey and Imogen aren’t around (Lyndsey had to push off after their first half).  The lads still put on the fantastic show they always do, with loads of jumping around going on, both off stage and on it.

The party continues after the (very late) gig finish, since it’s all our last chance to pass on bon voyage wishes to the travellers.  I just have to take my leave by about 1am, since I have a 5am train to catch the next day for a busy London weekend.  Party pooper!
