We have had a fantastic weekend of celebrations. Along the way we have played with and met some very interesting and very pleasant people.
It all began on Saturday 2 June at the Branston Over 60s Jubilee Lunch in the Village Hall. We got the chance to enjoy the BG Acoustic Jazz Duo before we took to the stage to entertain approx 150 or more people. Some of which got up and did a spot of dancing.
We then went straight to Langworth Community Hog Roast and Ceilidh, which although it was cold turned out to be an excellent evening. Many people of all ages got up and danced well into the night with just one light to help us all to see. We had the pleasure of working with Jimmy Smith (again) who called the dances for us.
Sadly my phone lost all battery when I went to take the photos at the Langworth Hog Roast and Ceilidh and I have not yet received any from the organisers.
The afternoon of Sunday 3rd June we headed to Metheringham Playing Field. Sadly the rain poured all afternoon and although the weather was horrendous the turn out was amazing. It was great to see so many people not letting the weather dampen there spirits. We entertained everyone for the majority of the event and in the middle the Primary School had a Children’s Choir which was delightful to hear.
In the evening we moved on to Timberland Village Hall to play a Barn Dance and again was delighted to be joined by caller Jimmy Smith. The evening was wet however inside the extremely nice and full village hall a great time was had. Lots and lots of dancing and a very appreciative audience. It would seem that the people of Timberland do have a problem with knowing their left from their right but it did mean that the evening was superb.
Monday 4 June we played at the Donington Community Centre and entertained approximately 300 people. We were one a very small stage in front of the Disco however thankfully we do like each other so it wasn’t too much of a problem. We didn’t get chance to eat anything but the 2 Hog Roasts did smell extremely mouth watering.
Finally Tuesday 5 June we performed an acoustic set at Sutton Bridge for the Tydd Gote Social Club. A scary moment for Tom when it was mentioned that the ladies had been talking of what a good voice he had and that he should sing a solo! Still the evening was extremely enjoyable and we look forward to returning in the near future.
Thank you to everyone who has booked us, listened and appreciated our music over the Jubilee Celelbrations, we have thoroughly enjoyed being apart of all the events.
God save the queen and may she reign for many years to come…
