August 10. It is a shame that Les Evans is still too unwell to perform with Glyn Long as one half of the Longshot duo but Glenn Rogers proved to be an excellent replacement. Having two lead vocalists gave a different dimension to the act with contrasting vocal styles and I particularly liked the frequent variation between older and newer country music. For example, Glenn singing Loving You Makes Me A Better Man, was followed by Glyn with Day of the Dead. Listeners and dancers showed their appreciation with good applause throughout the evening. Just how up to date Longshot are was emphasised when DJ Dave joked about them performing most of the club’s dance list, an exception, which Dave played, was a request for Dig Deep.
Unusually, there were more partner dancers than line dancers up for Gypsy Queen. Most of the partner dancers were from Danny & Barbara’s It Takes 2 western partner dance class, details available on the Best of British CMC website or you can call Danny/Barbara on 01795 475453.
