We saw in the New Year in style at Champneys Henlow. Thankfully the usual very healthy style was relaxed and plenty of champagne flowing to get everyone in the party mood and dancing till the early hours.

WEDDING BAND IN RUISLIP
Congratulations to Joanna & Leo – very happy to be chosen to play for their wedding party. What a great crowd on a very warm evening at the beautiful 700 year old Great Barn. Possibly the oldest venue we have ever played at (dates back to 13th century) – there are strict regulations on sound levels but we managed to create a good atmosphere and had guests dancing all evening.
Although I’ve lived there all my life we don’t work locally that often so was great to get a booking for our wedding band in Ruislip.

We are delighted to have been selected to play for a Grand Black Tie Ball in October 2017 as part of the celebrations of the tercentenary anniversary of Freemasonry (300 years). We are well known with our trio (and often quartet) as one of the established bands for Masonic Ladies Nights but as the ball is for around 600 guests this will be our full five piece band line-up including female vocalist and sax player.

Although Freemasonry is thought to date back to the stone masons of the Middle Ages this anniversary celebrates the founding of the world’s first “Grand Lodge” in 1717.

Another change of style for the jazz & swing band - we were asked to play for a 1920s / Great Gatsby themed corporate event recently at the luxury Beaumont House in Windsor. Even though not a totally "authentic" 20s line-up (no sousaphone or banjo!) the client thought the sound and style were perfect. With a possible repertoire of around 80 tunes from the era and massively experienced Pasadena Roof Orchestra regular Ben Cummings on trumpet the evening was a great success.

Rather behind in news from Summer events but one of the most enjoyable to be involved with was playing outdoors at the Olympic rowing venue at Dorney Lake on 30th June.
This was with a 5 piece jazz & swing band line-up (including trumpet and sax) playing for family and friends of British Gas employees who were swimming a mile in the lake as part of  "British Gas Swims Britain" a nationwide event raising more than £250,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.

Unusual event last week for the jazz trio playing for one of London's oldest private banks in the "square mile".

Although one of the busiest parts of the city we were outdoors in their large garden - just missed the rain thankfully.

Another new top class venue in London's West End for us last night with the jazz and swing quartet playing for a computer company's 10 year anniversary party at Home House on Portman Square.

Very warm and sultry evening but everyone seemed to be having a good time.

First time visit for us as Masonic Ladies Night Band to the Pavilion at Luton on Saturday.

Compact but tasteful venue hidden away in the outskirts of the town. We had the four piece with girl singer line-up - crowd was up and dancing straight away - just a shame that the evening seemed to fly by and was over all too soon!

Usually masonic ladies nights bands are required to provide accompaniment for The Ladies Song. Our pianist would usually do this or it can be the full band if preferred.

These days it is usually performed by a member of the Lodge, the toastmaster or a "choir" of Lodge members seems to becoming increasingly popular.

We have played for several different version of the Masonic Ladies Song over the years and the words for the more popular ones (including several variations) are on our Masonic Ladies Song page together with the words for The Masonic Grace.

Shame to hear the news that Gordon Ramsay will shortly be leaving Claridges.
Have played for several very nice events over the years both with the jazz duo and as solo pianist in the private dining part of the restaurant. The Amaryllis Room was particularly classy although a very tight fit for us!
