What a night!

A great time was had by all last night in Later@Resound, including us! So wonderful to be entertaining an audience again, we’ve really missed it.

In fact, it was such a success, we’ve been asked back next year! I fancy a Valentine’s Day ball, how about you?

I’ve compiled some of the pics and videos here, enjoy!

Sound check done….

All welcome!

Our gig is a week today, and we’re all getting excited!

Friends often say “I’d love to hear you!” …so here’s your chance!

Only 50 minutes from Cardiff, much less from Bristol, of course, Resound is a fab venue – professional sound and lighting, just a token entrance fee (pay at the door) and BYOB, so a cheap night out…what’s not to love?! I might even have space in my car for a couple of local friends!

Don’t forget your dancing shoes!

A recce…

Trying out the foldback, singing a song we’re NOT doing in the gig…complete with mask, bag and brolly….

Mark, Hazel and I popped over to Resound this morning, for a recce before our gig on the 11th March. And we all agreed – what a fab place! The very helpful Bob showed us around, and talked us through his lighting and PA plans. This will be our first gig with the venue sorting out our PA mix – how exciting! Anyone who knows me will know how, as someone who’s worked in broadcast sound for so many years, I find it hard to trust anyone else(!) but the lovely Bob reassured us completely. It’ll be fun! And such a joy, to not have to hump all my gear in, wearing a fancy frock and heels…

We’re a band again!

A few weeks ago Kathy joined us, playing alto sax, and she’s had a very steep yet successful learning curve! She’s doing brilliantly, and fits in so well, it’s like she’s always been one of us!

And more recently, Pete the double bassist has joined too. He’s still in the process of learning all our tunes, but he’s fitting in fantastically well too, it’s so lovely to hear such a great, smooth bass sound again.

We’re so lucky to have found two such great musicians, and such lovely people too!

So we’ll soon be ready to start gigging again (no pressure, you two!)

I wonder when we’ll play in public again? Fingers crossed it won’t be too long – we want to show off our new musicians!
