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 Swing to Jazz and Ballad to Rock, we provide a plethora of perfect positiveness! We are also very excited to be asked back,...

The party’s over. It’s time to turn off the lights? Never. Cranberry Flick’s lights are glowing warm and bright. Cranberry is for life, not just for Christmas.

Armed with gallons of coffee, we set up on the...

Spread a little happiness

  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 first time and you could sense the concentration in the orchestra pit, ‘Fever’ and ‘It Had To Be You’...

Big Chief Success

Sunday started grey and miserable as I rolled out of bed. I heard the sound of snap crackle of pop in the morning and that’s just my knees. After a cold shower, I leapt into my Cranberry outfit (no not red, but the clothes I wear in the Band) loaded the car with bass and bone… and set off for the gig… returning 5 minutes later to collect my amp.
