Fangs for the music

If there were any bats in the belfry, Cranberry Flick sent them packing, with two hours of top entertainment, raising a fair sum of money for Beeston Methodist Church as well. A very appreciative audience sang along to Minnie the Moocher and was lulled by the sweet...

Cranberry and Cream

I never knew there were two nine thirties on a Sunday? Crawling out of bed, I heard the distinct sound of Snap, Crackle and Pop, breakfast ? No just my legs preparing to walk to the bathroom. With most days in August being wet and chilly, I wasn't looking forward to a...

Exciting times in Cranberry land. We are planning and practicing to go back into the studio to record some new tracks. Predominantly they will show the flexibility of the band (although I still can't do the splits) and the wide range of music the band can cover. From...

Spread a little happiness

Β  Another fantastic gig at The Risley Park. The venue had forgotten to put the dance floor down, but our audiences are very brave and risked axminster carpet burns to boogie the night away. From waltzes to jive, everyone had a great time. New numbers trialled for...
