December 2017. This is SPANGLERS Xmas party and time to say a big thank you to Jenny, Graham and our resident compere Elaine for all their hard work in booking lots of great acts over the last 5 years and their hard work organising all the fantastic evenings we've had. And tonight was no exception. The zany THRILLBILLIES excel at creating a wonderful Xmas atmosphere with a Country twist.
November 2017. Johnny and Lynette were back for their second visit to SPANGLERS and this time Lynette was playing a double bass as well as guitar, something I don't think weve seen here before. The duo played three great sets of traditional country with great enthusiasm and showmanship.
November 2017. Tonight at Spanglers we are celebrating Halloween and all the profits go to the Papworth Hospital charity. Paying their 3rd. visit was the UK's top country music band Gary Perkins and the Breeze and they really do deserve the accolade. Fantastic singing from Gary and great musicianship (is there really such a word) from Breeze. Andy on lead guitar still rocks it out like a Rock n Roll axeman complete with the poses and leather trousers.
October 2017. after missing a couple of months due to a flood at the club SPANGLERS is back with a bang. After entertaining us all back in February, Rick Storm was back with his son Ashleigh and a great show they put on for us all. Thanks Guys.
July 2017. The music tonight was provided by Daniel Berry. Jenny must understand what the Spanglers faithful like because Daniel hit the spot for everyone. Hope you can pull it off again next month Jenny with Clear Cut.
May 2017 Tonight's act should have been Fools Gold but they cried off citing a double booking just a few days ago but we were very lucky to secure Tony and Angie aka Speed Limit. They did 3 really good sets for us with Angie entertaining us all with her singing and stories and Tony happily providing the music on his pedal steel guitar, I guess he prefers to let his fingers do the talking.
April 2017. Tonight we are raising money for a local charity, Sue Ryder Hospice and Thorpe Hall and to put everyone into a party mood and loosen their wallets Donna Wylde and Darren Murphy (minus the other half of Kentucky Rain) provided the music. not sure how much was raised but it was close to £400, so well done everyone.
April 2017. Darren knight entertained us all tonight and a great job he did too. With a good mix of Country songs and a "homage" to his hero, Elvis Presley. Darren brought his partner Aderline along to the gig who performed a few songs herself to the delight of the members.
March 2017. The Club was packed tonight. Don't know whether it's the atmosphere, the organisation, the delicious rolls or just the music but you must be doing something right Jennifer. Making a return visit tonight (I think it was his 3rd) was Darren Busby who has one of the best voices on the Country circuit, even when he has a cold. Darren has a great gift of connecting to his audience with a great line of patter. Check out those jeans and boots !
February 2017. SPANGLERS Valentines party and the music tonight was in the very capable hands of Rick Storm. Rick's voice reminds me of a bear gargling with honey and I mean that in the nicest possible way. His deep, brown tones are perfectly suited to Jim Reeves numbers. And this guy gives terrific value for money, he never wants to stop performing and even during his breaks he is walking round the tables and chatting to the visitors. Great night, thanks Rick, cant wait to see you back in October
January 2017 - The start of another new year in the ongoing success story that is Spanglers Country Music Club and starting off this latest chapter were Blue Genes, Kay and Steve Lee and their daughter Megan all the way from Wrexham. OK so I couldn't be there due to illness but I've read the reviews on the website and they were very popular. So thanks to Derek Franklin for all the photos.
