Shock news arrived at the TS desk this week – accountants dance! Yes, unable to resist the magnetic pull of rock and roll, members of the London Society of Chartered Accountants boogied to the strains of society chairman Richard Joseph’s electric guitar at a recent concert (or as Richard likes to say, ‘gig’).
Crikey, looks like TS will have to get rid of our Perry Como 78s and invest in a couple of those CD things if it’s going this way.
Mind you there was also a bit of a stand-off during the performance at the Chartered Accountants Hall, Moorgate Place. While Rocking Richard wanted to whip the crowd into a frenzy with hot guitar licks, fellow LSCA member ‘Magic’ Mark Lee wanted to woo the crowd with his David Copperfield stuff. Good Lord, competition for the spotlight!
Mind you what institute members really want Magic Mark do is make the erstwhile members of the troublesome South Essex District Society disappear. Now there’s an act!
