Another year for The NUGs comes to an end, who would have thought five years ago on that first Thursday night that we would still be going and even stronger than ever. Five of us met up that first night, it was nearly four because we just caught Gary C disappearing out the door. Another year later and after a move to The Lamplighter earlier in the year we had grown to seventeen people turning up. We usually celebrate each year by playing through the first set of songs from the first night and this year will be no different.

1; Paint It Black

2; These Boots Were Made For Walking

3; Friday I’m In Love

4; Count On Me

5; Tell Me Ma

6; Folsom Prison Blues

7; Breakfast At Tiffanys

8; Valerie

9; Jolene

10; Three Little Birds

11; A Well Respected Man

12; I’m Yours

13; All My Loving

14; Blowin In The Wind

 

Come along to The Thomas A Becket and celebrate with us.
