Straight No Chaser are back from the brief summer break and straight back into action!
A quick catch-up on our performances to date…
The SNC big band are proud to have played at the wedding celebrations of Jo Eagle and John Hinton on Sunday, 26 July. Playing a rapid sequence of song and dance numbers at the Old Market in Hove, nothing pleases us more than seeing groovers enjoying our music—yeah, we saw your dancing! Jo is Ali’s (baritone saxophone) sister and we’d like to extend as a band our very best wishes to Jo and John. Special mention goes to Susanna Alce for singing with us and Phil Laybourn (bass trombone) for not singing, but being our compère for the set.
We’re also very grateful for the terrific welcome at the Forest Row music festival on Sunday 20 September—our first gig since the summer break. Most of us didn’t expect the expert sound crew that managed to provide us each with our own microphone—that was a real treat, thanks! Again, the enthusiasm was infectious and we greatly appreciate being joined by the combined vocal talents of Gary Wright and Jacqui Sampson. We look forward to being back soon!
