This year, more than ever, we’ve been booked for birthday parties – and it’s been great fun! Tonight’s was a rocking 50th – with requests from Mud to Slade – tracks taking us back (to before we were born!) and bringing us right up to date too.
Doing It For The Kids!
In his wisdom, our organiser recommended we played some tracks to get the kids up and dancing first off and that the parents would join once they’d had a drink or two – and he hit the nail right on the head! At weddings almost the opposite logic applies – get the parents of the bride and groom and their friends up first, and the ‘youth’ will follow. But tonight was quite a different audience makeup, and actually, bashing out some McFly, Outkast and Scouting For Girls really got the party started!
Kenilworth – A Great Place For A Coventry Band
It’s always great in this job to know that you’re not 2 hours but 10mins from home! It can often give us a real boost through the gig, and tonight was definitely one of those. We had a lot of fun, especially with a couple of new tracks to us – including Tiger Feet By Mud – it made a really refreshing change from much safer sets that we’ve played in the past!
No photos sadly from this show – time to set the camera up ran away from us… perhaps check out another blog post to see the band in action!
