Grand Final Eve 2009
with JVG Guitar Method, Biller Miller, Jane Clifton, Jack Howard, Ian Bland, Tracey Harvey, Ted Hopkins
Anyone from Melbourne won't need to know how big a night Grand Final Eve is, a lot of blokes look forward to it more than Christmas every year.
I had written this gig down ages ago and so was able to brush off the requests from every man and his dog to come to their Grand Final Eve show at the last minute, not that they wouldn't have been good also.
JVG Guitar Method was great during the night and they did short brackets with breaks for the raffle, handball comp, Ian Bland reading poetry, Billy Miller, Jane Clifton and Jack Howard doing songs. Special guest for the night was Ted Hopkins who had an interview with JVG and read from his book. In his honour, highlights of the 1970 VFL Grand Final were screening on a screen behind the band.
It was a very entertaining night and I look forward to next year to see if they can top it.
