On this blog I know I post mainly about Tango, but as I have said before, on a Wednesday we normally go social dancing. We go to a small, well run social club called The Ewloe Social club. It is much like the clubs de barrio that I love so much in Buenos Aires, the clientel likewise are aging, mostly in their seventies and eighties.
The act on a Wednesday consists of two men known affectionately as Deryk and Geoff. Deryk plays the organ and Geoff the drums. There is a banter all night with each other and the audience, the entertainment goes far beyond just dance music.
They are both in their eighties and, as you can imagine have had a few health scares. Now though they have decided to call it a day, after twenty five years of playing the club. Unfortunately I cannot be there for their last performance, that work thing gets in the way again. Perhaps it is just as well, Viv would be in tears , and I think I may have been as well (very un british).
Viv, myself, Doreen, Ralf, along with all the club will miss them terribly, hopefully they will come back and visit us often.
