10th December,a good days gigging.

On the 10th December the band played two gigs. The first one of the day was an afternoon gig at the Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood. We were invited to play for the Paddington Churches Housing Association annual Christmas party. To be honest when the guests started to arrive we thought perhaps they had booked the wrong kind of band, but from the very first number they loved the rock and roll we played. The band and all the guests really enjoyed the afternoon and we look forward to playing for them again. The second gig in the evening was a charity gig for 'Crisis At Christmas' at the the British Volunteer pub in Weybridge. Suzanne and Debbie who had seen the band play at the Barley Mow in Shepperton asked us if we would be prepared to play for the charity event. We were very pleased to help out. It was a great night and almost £350 was raised to help feed the homeless over the Christmas period. Our thanks to Suzanne and Debbie for asking us to play and also to Martin and Dawn, the landlords, for making us feel so welcome. The band are looking forward to playing at the pub again in February 2010. All in all a very good day.
