Gig report: a trip to the West Country

On Friday night we were thrilled to be performing in Bristol with a fantastic crowd of experienced Rock 'n' Roll dancers for a private booking. The band had a fantastic night and we were treated like kings, fed and watered to our hearts' content. We have recently given our repertoire a bit of a shake-up, and given the abundance of experienced dancers we decided to give our hour and a half set a 50s twist with some classic Elvis Presley favourites. Here's the setlist in full:

  • Hound Dog - Elvis Presley
  • Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison
  • Sway - Dean Martin
  • Gimme Some Lovin' - Spencer Davis Froup
  • Never Too Much - Luther Vandross
  • You Really Got Me - The Kinks
  • Just The Two Of Us - Bill Withers
  • Jailhouse Rock - Elvis Presley
  • A Little Less Conversation - Elvis Presley
  • Georgia On My Mind - Ray Charles
  • Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry
  • I'm A Believer - The Monkees
  • Everybody Needs Somebody - Blues Brothers
  • (Encore) Let's Get It On / You Sexy Thing - Marvin Gaye / Hot Chocolate

We were also thrilled to have Mark Tomlinson standing in for Huw Jeremy on the drums and the fabulous Brad " The Doctor" Augstein on keys standing in for Henry. We're looking forward to many more upcoming gigs in the coming weeks. Here's a quick reminder that our availability for Christmas and New Year is quickly filling up! If you are looking for great festive entertainment don't hesitate to get in touch today.

Update: we have kindly been sent some footage from the evening, including some warm testimonials from party guests and our client. You can watch the video on YouTube:
