Club Night Christmas Special

What a great end to our Club events for 2017 with a wonderful evening of music for our last Club Night of the year. Jeanette Harding came-up from New Plymouth and played her Korg Pa3X for us with added jazz vocals. Then, Taka Iida played his magnificent Yamaha Stagea two-manual keyboard with pedalboard - wonderful orchestrations. After a lovely supper with very special Japanese cakes provided courtesy of Taka Iida we were ready for the second-half. Our guest artist was our old friend, Chris Larking, who played our Yamaha Clavinova CVP-509 magnificently. It is always a delight to listen to the unique playing style of Chris with his humour built-into the music!

A big thank you to all the Committee Members and kitchen/logistics supporters for the evening and for their assistance all year at Club Nights and Coffee Days held at Lifestyle Villages.
