This is always one of our favourite gigs and last Thursday’s was no exception.

We were very lucky to have Rachel Musson guesting with us on tenor sax, who played some great solos.

There was a good crowd who seemed to enjoy themselves, inclduing some regulars. And Roger, the sound guy, is one of the best we ever work with.

We had two sets – and this was what we played.

  • Chinatown
  • Guns Of Navarone
  • Latin Goes Ska
  • Tide Is High
  • Mood For Love
  • My Baby Just Cares for me
  • Work Song
  • Mambo Number 5
  • Enola Gay
  • Mad World
  • London Calling
  • Monkey Man
  • One Step Beyond
  • Hall of the Mountain King
  • Come Dancing
  • Simmer Down
  • Pata Pata
  • 10 Out Of 10
  • Tainted Love
  • Rudy A Message To You
  • Baggy Trousers
  • My Boy Lollipop
  • Gangsters

And it’s always good to see our name (almost) in lights. Let’s hope we get to play there again soon, and that by then the owners have stopped victimising their staff and pay the living wage.
