2 Shades plus 1 entertain local hospice patients

Leave a comment

2 Shades of Grey entertained patients and staff this week at Pendleside Hospice.

Cancer care is a cause close to their hearts having performed at Macmillan coffee mornings in the past and also fund-raising for the hospice by playing at a local pub.

On this occasion they were joined by percussionist Roy Shoesmith, former drummer with Mike’s old group The Avalons (see archive) who last played together in 1966.

On these occasions we encourage community involvement in the performance and include a pop quiz based on 60s favourites from the Kinks, Beach Boys, Sam Cook etc. and expect them to sing along.

The Pendle-ettes didn’t let us down!

The music ranged from standards by NKC and Ella to Tex-Mex, country and latin and included a tribute to Glen Campbell with three of his best Jimmy Webb penned songs.

Everybody enjoyed the event so thanks to everyone who helped: Margaret and Gemma and the other lovely staff.

And also thanks to Roy for stepping in at a few days notice to help us out.

He says he's a psychologist but aren't we all?
