Update: Here’s some lovely feedback from the client:

Thank you all so much for coming all this way. Everyone has been saying how brilliant you all were and loved the music.

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year. It was a perfect day to play a party in a garden deep in the country near Petworth in Sussex – easy to find on some sat navs, challenging for others.

The photo shows the set up – a dance floor on the grass and a platform for the drums and vocals.

It was still warm when we finished playing at 11pm after extending our second set to keep people dancing.

It was isolated  enough not to worry about noise and neighbours, and our PA was just right for this kind of gig.

This is more or less what we played as we threw in a few encores to keep the second set going:

  • Chinatown
  • Guns Of Navarone
  • Latin Goes Ska
  • Tide Is High
  • Mood For Love
