All Set To Go On Stage with Paul!
Getting Ready for My Second Set!
Hello every-one I’ve just got back today from working Saturday night at Woldingham Golf Club. I had been engaged to perform a show in two halfs for a 1940s Diner Dance and Paul was able to join me on stage not only as my sound engineer but as singer too. The room was a very long one with a dance floor at one end so I placed myself in the middle and daisy chained four of my larger 300 EV speakers down the room so the sound could be evenly balanced throughout. I also used my walk about radio mike which worked splendidly for my first sing-along ATS set. This tied in beautifully with desert as I was able to entertain the room while the kitchen caught up with the last courses. For my second set I changed into an evening gown and sang all those wonderful swing favourites for dancing while Paul delighted audiences with the tunes of Frank Sinatra. Keep up the good work Paul they loved you! Saturday’s show was a private function and a really lovely audience to entertain so thank-you Claire for inviting me. I hope you all enjoyed your evening as much as we did and it was a pleasure to sing for you all.
Me in My 1940s Evening Gown!
This week I have a few more ATS shows but on the 21st I shall be swapping my army uniform for Wrens as I’ve been booked to perform for Trafalgar Day. Oddly enough out of all the uniforms I wear the Wrens is the one I wear least as the Navy don’t seem to invest in entertainment as much as the Army and Airforce do. The Airforce seem to stage more social events and most of the Mess dinners I sing for are through the Airforce although many MOD places are now combined forces. On Friday night Paul and I will be at the Assembly Hall in Walphamstowe for The Royal British Legion Poppy Dinner Dance. The Tod Miller Joe Loss Show Band will be performing and I shall be dashing over after my afternoon show in Aylesbury. Once again I have shows all this week so I had better get to bed as I’m off to the gym first thing tomorrow morning. Elliot has been putting me through my paces and it’s good to see my figure knitting together as we work to sculpture my desired shape. It’s great having a trainer!
That’s all my news for now Keep Watching and Toodle Pip!
