In something that has become an almost annual tradition, Eric Clapton sat in with Gary Brooker’s band, No Stiletto Shoes, on Friday 21 December 2007 at the Ex-Servicemen’s Club in Chiddingfold, England. Eric joined in after the band played a few numbers. Eric was on stage for just over an hour. The band also included Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze and Frank Mead.
As usual, the set list was quite eclectic. Eric played on the following songs:
Santa Claus Is Back In Town
Get Up (Stand Up For Your Rights)
Hand Jive (featuring E.C. on vocals)
Old Black Joe
High School Hop
Bright Lights, Big City
You Can’t Judge A Book
Good Night Irene
This also turned out to be the last “Christmas Gig” at the Ex-Servicemen’s Club in Chiddingfold as the club will close in Spring 2008. It was announced last week in the “Surrey Advertiser” that the club will be torn down to make way for new homes and a smaller club. Because of the smaller scale of the new club and it’s proximity to housing, it will be unable to host live bands.
