Black Country Accordion & Music Club’s Film Evening, West Midlands - UK

Alexander KorbakovMalcolm GeeThe Black Country Accordion & Music Club held a club night with a difference on June 28th by holding a fish and chip supper and a film (video) show.

The evening began with a video of Russian accordionist Alexander Korbakov (picture left) in performance, which ran for 58 minutes.

This was shown on a large screen, with almost cinema quality, using a professional sound system consisting of two speakers and an amplifier, provided by Club Chairman Barry Smith.

The Alexander Korbakov video was followed by a fish and chips, which was much appreciated by all present.

After the meal the audience settled down to watching an unreleased video of the 1996 Caister Accordion Festival, filmed by the club’s Secretary Lou Ambrose. This was a tribute to the late Malcolm Gee (picture right), the founder of the Caister festivals.

Malcolm had sponsored the Caister videos but due to his shock demise the video was never officially released as he had never seen it. A special tribute to Malcom was made by accordionist Ron Hawkins at the beginning of the video. The video also showed the late Andy Anderson playing his own composition of 'Angelina'.

The whole evening went down very well with many comments of satisfaction from both members and guests alike.
