Barryoke! Hits the Limelight

The first ‘Hit the Limelight’ event, on a cold snowy February evening, was Barry Buckley with his aptly named Barryoke! - a sing along to the music of Queen. He was warmly welcomed by the sell out audience in Medstead Village Hall, as he expertly guided us through many of Queen’s best loved songs, interspersed with pictures of and factoids about the band. Barryoke! involves everyone joining in the singing, with the words shown on the big screen and to quote one of the audience ‘I have not sung like that in a very long time - great fun from beginning to end’. With plenty of arm swaying, hand clapping, air guitars and foot stomping, the evening culminated in a rousing rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody (well - what else could it have been?). Overall a ‘rollickingly good evening’.

Thanks should go to Medstead Scouts for providing the bar, which no doubt helped to lubricate our voices and loosen our inhibitions. Thanks also to Ruth for her lovely piano music pre-show and to Mike and his team for the organization.
