What do they say about never working with children or animals…. ????
Well next tuesday we will definitely be breaking at least one of those rules, (without even starting to think about the rhythm section… 😉 )
About 4 years ago I got asked by the Head Teacher of on of the school I teach at, whether we would be interested in putting on a concert performance with the school. I wasn’t quite sure how it would work out, but the children all put together dance routines for our music, and some of them worked at some material to play alongside us. Some kids and staff turned out to be really excellent singers, and put on a great show alongside the big band. It turned out to be a great event which the players told me they really enjoyed. My highlight had to be seeing Gary wearing a scuba suit, dancing amongst the kids who were dressed as fish, singing La Mer….. now if only Bobby Darin had thought of doing that…..
Anyhow Felbridge School recently asked if we might be interested in doing the event with them again… and … err … we said yes. So we will be taking on the kids again this coming Tuesday at the Hawth in Crawley.
Not our normal sort of concert and it will probably be a sell out, but if it takes your fancy give The Hawth Box Office a call and they may have a ticket left for you.
