I’m back, singing with (some of) the band! Only six people outdoors, so far. But we’re getting there! This is the first time I’d sung with them in nearly eight months, so as the the song goes “I found a thrill…”
…well, 6 at a time
Six members of the band managed to meet in the car park of our rehearsal rooms for an outdoor practice, the first in months!
Hopefully it’ll get better and better now – no going back!
If you were disappointed today, on Valentine’s Day, this’ll cheer you up!
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!
At Last I’m back too! First time in a Blue Moon…six months. S’Wonderful to be singing with the band again, only six of us today, but still an absolute joy…and They Can’t Take That Away From Me…!
Most of the band, just missing Adam (keyboards) and me, Pat (vocals) met up for the first time in nearly six months, for a rehearsal in the car park at Ridgewood, where we normally meet up – room 10 isn’t big enough for social distancing.
I think they sound great, bearing in mind we’ve not played together in such a long time. Simon (drums) said it was like we’d never been apart.
Of course, there are drawbacks to playing outdoors…! (Look our for Dan (trombone) and his fancy footwork!)
I’ll be there too next week, weather permitting! I can’t wait….
I’ve just uploaded my part for our next ‘Zoom’ video…..Richard, our talented bassist is doing the honours this time.
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….)
