Danny Dangerously lived up to his name on Friday when he recorded a live album at The Imperial in Broadfield, Crawley.
“I’m going to get the customers to write down a topic, then myself and the band will make something up around it.
The album will be mixed by True Tone studios and when it’s finished there will be a limited edition short run on CD for £5 a copy, with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.
It will also be released on Bandcamp as well, where you can download the rest of my music”.
Dan is a great guy, and a good friend to all, and there was no way I was going to miss this. The inside of the pub was festooned with Cancer Research bunting and collecting tins, balloons and lots of party props. The evening started with some great performances from Louise Raines, Emma Louise Harrop, The Logical Hairs and IF-E and Dan.
Then came the challenge itself, along with some very surprising, and inventive suggestions from the crowd such as … Upsidedown conception, billy goat in a caravan by the sea, chorizo, Spock, dancing in the kitchen with a rhino, and helicopter legs, to name but a few. Game on then.
My favourite was the billy goat song. I have never heard anyone bleating like a goat to a reggae beat before, the crowd loved it.Carol Vincent
They smashed it. My favourite was the billy goat song. I have never heard anyone bleating like a goat to a reggae beat before, the crowd loved it. The verses rolled out of Mr D’s mouth at at breakneck speed, his brain one second before, making it all up. Awesome. Every song was different and worked. I am really looking forward to hearing the finished album.
The brave musicians (some of whom had never met before) who joined Dannny Dangerously on stage were Tiago Gomes, Anthony James, Rhiannon Daniel, Jem Clark, Alistair Pulling, Christian Lasham and Simon Flint. Sound by Fred Ball.
Also, a very big well done to Kelly Martin for organising everything so brilliantly. I hope you raise a lot of money.
I think I’ll pop down to Fred Balls Open Mike at Goffs Park Social Club on Sunday (I have the music in me) and meet up with some of my other buddies next.
Have a great day everyone.
