California Dreams (Night Owl Shows)

By | Published on Thursday 10 August 2023

Love sixties and seventies music? This is for you – a happy afternoon of singing along to favourite songs with fellow enthusiasts. But it wasn’t just the audience doing the work. Singer Reine Beau Anderson Dudley had the most marvellous, soulful upper register and just flew in ‘You’re No Good’ transporting us back to the golden days of the glorious Linda Ronstadt. Naturally covered were The Mamas & The Papas, notably a spine tingling rendition of ‘Dedicated To The One I Love’ that had everyone swaying along. The Eagles’ were well represented with ‘Take It Easy’ featuring the slick yet dangerous guitar of Dan Clews – who has been produced by the Beatles’ George Martin – and his voice took us across the pond with every song.
