2010 Events
This year has been full of surprises. One minute we were thinking dancing had been outlawed and the next we were receiving enquiries so quickly we couldn't cope! We played for 37 events and every one a gem. Only a small increase on 2009, which we put down to the general recession, but people really are enjoying our lively and infectious style of playing and it seems like we're getting noticed too.
Thank you so much to everyone who danced to us, I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did playing for you. It's what makes us tick so spread the word! A big thank you to 'the few' who are all worthy of a special mention for their services to our cause: Laurie, Gary, Roger, Sid, Derek, & Liz. Thanks for helping to keep me sane. And a much broader thank you to everyone else who helped us along the way. Go on...take a bow, you deserve it.
