The District Club,
Pontypridd CF37 2HS
A total of £248.94 was
raised on the night, which although less than we have raised in the past was
a generous response from the relatively few people who turned up. They were
treated to some excellent music from the bands listed below. As the years
pass it is to be expected that fewer and fewer supporters are people who
knew Jenny (we thought there would be more than three) but not a few have
spoken to me about their own friends and family and why raising money for
Felindre is important to them. New total raised is £9942.94.
JenSing is not only
about raising money. The first JenSing was a party. I hope they remain
events when we can all remember those we have lost and have a good time.
to Heal' is obviously a very personal song but it's subject is
So, a great big
'Diolch yn fawr' to :- The Pontypridd and District Club for hosting the
event; the bar staff for keeping us supplied with lemonade; Mike Davies for
giving up so much of his time to coax a credible sound from a failing P.A.;
Dai Wells for providing us with his drum kit even though he had to be
somewhere else; Llantrisant Julie (my name for her) for door duty; those of
you who generously donated raffle prizes; those of you who didn't complain
when Claire's family won quite a few of them; Glo for taking naughty
pictures; every one who there and was so generous with their cash and their
appreciation of the musicians and, of course, to the musicians themselves,
this lot -
The too talented for
his own good Ross; Claire the (sick and baaad) bass person; Chris for daring
to lay himself open to such scrutiny with NO REHEARSAL WHATSOEVER and the
old guy with the stupid hair.
who played a mostly
original set with such aplomb (big word for a Monday). JenSing virgins no
longer (this was their third outing), they definitely made some new fans.
Thanks to Andrew for letting Dave use his Vox.
Order of Chaos
Heavy on the
metal........heavy on the talent. For once these guys had bit of room and
didn't suffer the usual 'no vocals without feedback' syndrome. OOC have
become regular supporters of JenSing.
Blue Traffic feat. Blues Show Bob
provided the much
anticipated finale of the evening with their usual flamboyance, ably
assisted by the bluesy Bob Williams and even John on 'is organ for the
encore. Second JenSing for these guys, they have a new CD out very
