End of Year get together at Whelans (Upstairs)

  • Nov 24, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi All, Another year of fun and songs will soon be drawing to a close and to celebrate this and my birthday, which will be the same weekend, myself and Seamus have invited some of our friends to do a few songs at Whelans (Upstairs) on November 24. There will be plenty of familiar Music Makers around and although we unfortunately don't have time for all 396 members to get up on stage, everyone is welcome to drop in to say hello and have a listen or chat. Please rsvp though if you are going to swing by, so we can have an idea of the numbers. If anyone is really keen to get on stage some time, please drop myself or Seamus an email and we will keep you in mind for the next time that a free place comes up.

We are booked into the venue from 5-9 pm as it is a Sunday, and people won't be wanting to stay too late. As usual you are free to pop in for 5 minutes, or stay for a couple of hours depending on how you feel. We won't charge entry, but might have a donation system or something, haven't decided that one yet.

Here is the list of performers (in roughly alphabetical order, this might end up being the playing order as well):

Andrew Whiteside

Anna Healy

Irina & Bart

Bernard Fitzpatrick

Conor Gibson

Carol Castillo

David Dore

David Murphy

Deirdre Kavanagh

Derek Mc Namara

Eamon Mc Gettigan

Gerry French

Gillian

James Shannon

Terry Lambert

Joe Kavanagh

    A great evening of entertainment and craic on Sunday. I was struck by the huge improvement in all the individual performances since last year. The collection box totalled €146 which has been sent to the following charities. Simon- €63, St V de Paul - €63 and Blind for the Blind €20. Well done to all who contributed. I have 38 videos which needed to be trimmed and compressed before uploading to YouTube. I will mark them private and send a link to anyone who sends me an email address. Otherwise I will publish and be damned :-) . It will take a bit of time to do all this and my upload speed is dire so patience please.

    It was a great opportunity to see the wide variety of talent shine. Whereas it was introduced as relaxed and informal like the usual sessions that we enjoy, it was obvious that people relished the challenge of performing on stage and the result was pretty impressive. Thanks to all who shaped the evening.

    A special thanks to you James and Seamus for the wonderful show on Sunday. The extra time and effort you guys put in behind the scene to make this, and the weekly sessions happen, is much appreciated. The performers and friends were delighted with the professional setup and especially appreciated the range of talents on show and your smooth running of the event. It is a joy for me to meet and perform with you and with all the other friendly, dedicated and talented people. Long may it continue.

    Thanks to everyone for a great night, especially to James and Seamus. It was so totally inspiring and uplifting. I enjoyed all the performances and am only sorry to have missed some. I definitely think we should give Mr. Cowell a call for our next gig though...we have some real hidden treasures in our little group!

    Hi lads,

    I was very happy yesterday. Become one of my best experience in life.

    I'm very happy seeing what a great development people went through. I could see some of us giving such a great performance. Some who didn't have the confidence a year ago performed great. So great experiencing this.

    See you soon at an upcoming night.

    Actually Kyla's comment has reminded me that I meant to ask if anyone knows for sure that they won't be there, would you mind to rsvp "no" please? Again, this will help us to plan for how many people might show up, and who might be available to play. Thanks! J

  • Kyla T.

    Aw, i'm really sorry to miss this. I'll be back in Dublin from the start of December, so hopefully if the group is running up till Christmas I'll see you all then. But this is guaranteed to be a great night, enjoy!
