Being asked back so quickly to play at The Arrow in Eastleigh, was fantastic news for us! As a fairly central point for all band members to get to, we were already unpacking the vans and setting up when the final band member arrived; having been slightly delayed due to chasing two escapee guinea pigs round the back garden! In true Take Note style though, with our fantastic team work and adaptability, we weren’t going to be phased. With the sound desk to lighting all set up in a short amount of time, we were able to take a few moments out and chill as a band.
Somehow, word on the grapevine had spread to our family and friends from far and wide for this gig. Bex and Tom’s parents had decided to ‘drop in’ (they had driven over from the depths of rural Wales), and Craig’s family and friends had made a mass turn out. From parents, brothers (what a resemblance you all have), aunties, uncles and cousins it was absolutely amazing to have such fantastic support. As soon enough as family and friends had arrived, 9pm chimed and we were off!
From start to finish we’ve never seen the dance floor so packed! With music from all eras, from Presley’s Hound Dog, Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer to S Club 7s Reach and beyond we had everyone up dancing. No one was ashamed of their dancing moves, and a big shout out to Grandma who took the lead on the dance floor, getting everyone up, proving that you’re never too old to go and bust some moves! With the crowd (a good couple of 100 people packed into the local pub) asking for more and more (and then even more), we sadly and regrettably had to finish at midnight. It was certainly a fantastic time had by both the band and crowd – although there maybe some sore feet for a few days! We can’t forget a shout out to Sarah’s Dad who even broke out his best move, “the worm” on the dance floor!
“It was an awesome night again guys, can’t wait until the next time”
“Had the best night last night, feet are sore though from all the dancing … Take Note were great as usual xxx”
