Eel Pie Birdwood Tonight 11/7/19
Tonight, Birdwood (Video Of The Day) are playing The Eel Pie Club, The Patch, 67 London Road, Twickenham TW1 3SZ. They are a thrillling all-star combination of three bands that played on Eel Pie Island in the 1960's - The Birds featuring vocalist Ali Mackenzie (which in the 1960's featured Ronnie Wood on guitar), guitarist Derek Griffiths of The Artwoods (which featured Art Wood on vocals) and Keith Grant of The Downliners Sect on bass. Mark Freeman (Rollin' Stoned, Downliners Sect and Art Wood All-Stars) is on drums and Chris Parren (Strawbs, Rocky Horror Show Band) is on keyboards. Tonight's peformance will be dedicated to the late Art Wood (brother of Ronnie) whose assistance, enthusiasm and encouragement in the Eel Pie Club's early days will never be forgotten, which will also see a raffle in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. Doors open at 8.15pm with music from 9-11pm. WRC members are reminded that they can use their cards to get discounted admission.
