It’s been a tough year for many, but we’ve still been meeting every week without fail…mostly on line, but occasionally in person, for a proper rehearsal…. when the tiers allowed!
Looking forward to 2021….and all those celebratory parties! And we thought 1999 was a biggie…..
Meanwhile, here’s a little something we’ve put together, enjoy!
Merry Christmas from room 10 xx
No…not that one…! But at last I’ve managed to edit Straighten up and Fly right and get it more or less glued together. This is probably my favourite yet! Such a fun song.
Fingers crossed that we can play together in room 10 next week, and start gigging again in the spring, but until then, here’s what we’ve been up to recently. Enjoy!
After last week’s rather unsuccessful attempts at playing together using Zoom, we decided just to have a chat today – and it was much better! So nice to hear and see everyone. And we’re making plans to try to do some remote recording, which will be fab…..fingers crossed!
Room 10 are looking for more gigs this year – it’s what we like doing best!
Please contact us on our contacts page if you’d like to discuss costs etc – we might be cheaper than you think! (And if we’re not…maybe we can sort something out….)
We had a longer rehearsal tonight, as it’s the last before Sunday’s gig. We wanted to go over our entire set, and we’re doing lots of new material – it needed work!
Lovely Rich, the bassist, brought along some extra equipment to help me with the vocals, so I’ll be actually able to hear myself – what a novelty!
I really enjoyed myself tonight, so if you come along to the Warmley Jazz Club on Sunday afternoon, if you enjoy yourself a quarter as much as I did this evening, you’ll have a great time!
We’ve started working on three new numbers; it’s funny, you don’t really know which you’ll like till you actually play and sing them…I was surprised! But they’re definitely stretching us. Loads of mistakes and loads of laughs (with me, not at me….I hope!)
We’re regrouping a bit – learning lots of new numbers, and going over old ones that we’ve not attempted for ages! Interesting…!
We’re also planning to have a promo video recorded – we’re still considering a good venue to use. (Any ideas?)
