Our special guest in December was the brilliant Phil Emmanuel invited by his good friend and Brisbane Shadows Players member, Tom Darcy. Phil played two sets of Shadows numbers, first with Tom's original Shadowmen - Glenn Wielemaker (rhythm), Michael Antcliff (bass) and Roy Beckerman (drums) and then with the current Shadowmen - Colin Poulton (rhythm), Michael Antcliff (bass) and Barry Wilkinson (drums).
Phil ended the afternoon with a fantastic solo set to backing tracks and left us all open mouthed in amazement. We are very grateful to Phil for taking the time to visit and perform for us, and to Tom for organising Phil's visit which was a wonderful and very enjoyable way to end our first year. Phil enjoyed himself very much too and is keen to visit again in the new year which we're all very much looking forward to.
Our members played very well too with a great variety of tunes. We were very pleased to welcome bass player Linda who played a great set with lead guitarist, Karlotta and marked the first time we had two female guitarists on stage together.
