40th Party at The Rising Sun

It was a welcome return to the The Rising Sun in Colden Common for some of the band, and what a lovely pub it is too! Lots of friendly locals and we received a very warm welcome from all of the staff as well (sorry for making you move all the tables!).

Although it was a somewhat cozy affair, we managed to squeeze in and set up camp for the evening, both playing for the pub and celebrating Sam’s 40th birthday. The guests were in fine vocal form once more, and yet again executed some amazing (and somewhat eye watering!) dance moves that were a thing to behold, (no doubt helped by some of the delights available behind the bar!).

 

Our first set flew by at what felt like record pace, managing to squeeze in 17 floor fillers before a short break to wet our whistles!

Our return was marked by a rapturous Happy Birthday played by the band, and then it was back to business. After pulling out a melody of “Rock Around the Clock” and “Hound Dog” from our song vault, (as a special request from one of the guests; we hadn’t played it in ages; we had forgotten they are such fun songs to play), we cracked on with the set throwing in some Michael Jackson, Girls Aloud….. even S Club 7 made an appearance!

Another fantastic night, with a top class audience and amazing staff; what more could we ask for? Well a couple of elderflower gins after we packed up to be honest….. Perfect!
