The Rivertones Variety Show 2018
Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre, Taunton
Friday, 9 November
A near full house attended this enjoyable Variety Show put on by The Rivertones who performed their delightful acapella harmonies, singing both upbeat numbers and some memorable ballads.
During the evening, Chorus Director Peter Gover with the help of The Rivertones, demonstrated to the audience how the harmonies are put together to form the unique barbershop-style sound.
Supporting The Rivertones were Trio Anglais, a Reinhardt/Grapelli gypsy swing band who entertained with acoustic guitars and violin and The Silver Street Band, who performed a mix of folk, blues, rock, country and jazz music. They are also founders of the Milverton Music Club, near Taunton.
An extra ‘little surprise’ act was Murray Porter who came on stage incognito purporting to have walked in off the street doing his convincing rendition of ‘There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly’. (Murray is a Tenor with The Rivertones!)
The Variety Show, which also featured some light humour and just a touch of audience participation, was compered by a ‘resting’ Rivertone – Kevin Coughlan, who had travelled up from Devon.
