What a fantastic gig last night! After almost a year of planning the big band played to sold out venue of happy christmas revellers, all dancing to a swing and latin set from the band, which to be honest was playing in absolutely top form.
The band was joined on this occasion by singers from the local area, including the fab trio Just The Three of Us, and 2 male singers: Tony and Gary. These singers have worked with the band at similar occasions in the past and did some truly wonderful singing. Of course as ever the girls: Siggy, Rachel and Karen really stole the show, with their gorgeous three part harmonies, solo tunes and great dance moves and stage presence.
We did manage to take some videos of the performance, and they are being edited as I type, and should be posted up on the internet very soon. If you were there, you might even spot yourself dancing in the crowd… so please watch this space!
We estimate that around £4000-5000 was raised during the evening for the Martletts charity, so it really was a success on all counts. We are currently planning similar events in the new year and I will post up here as soon as I know more.
