It was another gloriously hot, sunny day for our third Sunday Session at Broomfield Park, Palmers Green on 16 August 2009. Classical guitarist Mark Harris was first up on stage to perform his debut at singing! He has a very nice voice and we all agreed he did an excellent job with the covers Pretty Amazing Grace, Bus Stop and 9 Million Bicycles, but it was his own composition Sing You A Song that grabbed everyones attention! Great Stuff!! Next up was regular Alan who is already through to the final and did well singing Fly Transfer Airways, Boom Boom Boom and Groundhog acappella! Arriving just in time to end the open mic section came Caroline Hoare (lead singer of The Haunting A.D.) who gave us some rousing rock with Burn The Witch, Ramble On and Walking On The Moon! Both Mark and Caroline have been invited to return for the open mic final on the 23rd August!

Next up were rock n roll band, the The Roosters to provide the afternoons musical entertainment and who again went down a storm with the audience who were soon up bopping along to some great tracks including Con Tikki, Bad Moon Rising and Tulsa Time to name a few!!

During the break duo Broken Acoustic performed some great tunes like We Can Work It Out and If I Had A Million Dollars but particular favourite was a rather good medley which included Rave On, Oh Boy and Peggy Sue. Brad is a competant acoustic guitarist and he also sang backing vocals that were a perfect accompaniment to Darrens excellent lead vocals.

After their set, The Roosters were back on stage to give us some more great tunes including a great repeat version of Route 66 and Mustang Sally by invited guest Terry who was celebrating his 65th birthday!! Particular favourites of the afternoon included Is This The Way To Amarillo, Rocking All Over The World and Do You Wanna Dance ... and yes ... we did!!

We ended their session with a suprise - the lads persuaded yours truly to join them to sing Stand By Me!! Thanks go to band members John (Rhythm Guitar and Lead Vocals), Peter (Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals), Dave (Bass Guitar and Backing Vocals) and Jim (Drums) for another rockingly good afternoon!
