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?)
What a great night! More pics to come – but I couldn’t resist sharing this instrumental snippet – aren’t they cool?!
room 10 are delighted to announce a change of venue! We’re now going to be in the lovely, friendly Greyhound in Tetbury on Saturday. And it’s free!
No comedy acts now though, sorry, unless…no. You wouldn’t be so cheeky!
See you there!
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 had a fab gig on Sunday night, I’m still compiling the photos – here’s one from before we started (taken by Simon, the drummer…that’s why he’s missing!)
Everyone was lovely, and all so welcoming – thanks Janet (who’s birthday party it was) – it was terrific to see everyone up dancing the night away!
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!
Our new bassist Rich brought along both of his electric upright basses to rehearsal the other evening, instead of his bass guitar – he’s a man of many talents! He’s playing a different one each week, so we can decide which suits our music best – we think they look so cool, and sound even better!
And that extra one, in the middle? That’s Mark’s stick…wearing his coat! (What else?!)
Thanks to Hazel for the pic…and the headline!
….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…..
