The 30th April saw us back at The Sip Club for our thirteenth jam on another bright and warm spring evening. In this week’s songlist, we welcomed back a couple of old favourites, Folsom Prison Blues and I’m a Believer, plus we saw the addition of I Wanna Be Like You to the list for the first time.
The songlist changes brought a bit of variety to the first session. Particularly with I Wanna Be Like You, which starts deceptively easily, then gets a bit tricky at the chorus.
In second session we tackled a whole host of songs, some we’ve played before and some for the first time including Dancing in the Dark, Dancing Queen, Ever Fallen in Love, Eye of the Tiger, Friday I’m In Love, Gold, A Hard Day’s Night, Jolene, Kids in America, La Bamba / Twist and Shout, Livin’ On A Prayer, She Bangs the Drums, Shake It Off, Space Oddity, Teenage Kicks, Total Eclipse of the Heart, You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.
Hope to see you again next week! As ever, if you have any feedback or requests for the songbook or songlist, then please do get in touch!
