Making her debut appearance at the club, the national and internationally acclaimed singer, Lee Gibson, made a massive impact with a full house at the Pallant Suite.

Indeed, when club member Mary Kirk was introduced earlier to the tall, stylish vocalist she had pointed out, 'You sound smaller on the radio!'
Supporting Lee were the excellent John Horler trio,
With an impressive selection of quality material including standards, ballads, and blues, Lee and the band were able to reveal their versatility and were still able to respond to many second half requests from members.
Her accomplished interpretations of 'Lush Life' the tribute, 'I remember Clifford' and the spectacular 'Porgy and Bess' were especially recognised by a warm and enthusiastic crowd.
