Our July meeting

Of our new members Allan brought along his Burns Double Six which we all admired and Guy, Barry and Alan gave excellent performances - in one case at very short notice.

In the 60s Barry Wirth played lead guitar with the band The Embers. A highlight of Barry's career was playing "The Savage" live at a matinee of the first release screening of "Summer Holiday" in Brisbane so his Shadows association goes back a long way. Barry teamed up with Lester Vickary (formerly of The Pacifics and still with The Dominoes) so it was great to hear members of two very popular sixties bands together on stage and they sounded fantastic.

Guy very much enjoyed his visit and hopes to be able to visit us again if he's down this way. Guy also played brilliantly including "Moonlight Shadow" which nobody has played at our meetings before.

Other highlights were Roger Dunlop's re-written "Hippy Hippy Shake" dedicated to one of our founding members who has been going through a difficult time lately.
