Performing at the Ship Inn first was Mike and the Mechanic who had become, for the evening, Mike and the Mechanics singing songs of the sixties and seventies. They had a most appreciative audience who wanted them to continue far longer than time allowed.
Krystal Mills sang with huge energy giving a powerful performance. She occasionally encouraged everyone to join her – especially when it came to Happy. Her experience singing to a larger audience than the Ship could ever hold was very evident.
