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…”
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’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?)
Mark, Hazel and I (Pat) popped over to beautiful Tetbury today, to check out the venue of our next gig https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/southwestlive/1940s-sweetheart-ball/e-zzopyy
It’s all looking fab – we’re very happy with the hall, and it’s a good sized stage too. It’s very central – this famous building is just round the corner!
Such a pretty part of the country, we’ll enjoy visiting.
We’ve been booked to do our set in a 1940s event at the beginning of June, in Tetbury. It sounds like a fantastic night out!
More details as and when we have them (I don’t think this one is a private party, so you might be able to come along!)
We’re doing our first Welsh gig, a private party in Cardiff at the beginning of May…yay! We’re international! A bit more planning required for most of the band, as most live in Bristol or beyond…what’ll work best…car sharing? Even a minibus is being discussed..! But for me (Pat) it’s brilliant…I could walk!
Cymru am byth!
….bride…..and groom, because we’ve been booked to entertain at our first wedding! Yay! How exciting! We’ve got lots of new numbers ready to learn, and maybe a new one for a First Dance, which will be delightful.
It’s not till August though, hopefully we’ll have loads more gigs before then…..
