To play in a stately home, is a privilege….to play in it twice is an honour. Kelham Hall deep in Robin Hood country is a magnificent building, set in acres of beautiful grounds. Two weeks previous we had played for a vintage wedding Fayre, setting up in a smaller room. Yesterday, we all hit the road at 7am to play for the Vintage Festival. Armed with gallons of coffee, we set up on the stage in the magnificent domed hall. Acoustically astounding, we started our first set at 10.30am as the public flocked to browse the Vintage wares. They sang along to Minnie the Moocher. Jived to Jumping East of Java.. and pleaded with the organisers for us to do an extra set!! Only willing to please, we went back on and did more great numbers. A jive demonstration class in a room further in the hall, decided not to dance to backing tracks, but to join us in the main hall, giving an outstanding display of jump jive. A few of us went back with empty wallets, after buying shirts and coats and cake and sausage cobs. A great day for the Band.. a truly entertaining day for the public. Cranberry Flick.. coming to a town near you soon.
