Surprise 40th Birthday

Who doesn’t love a surprise birthday party? Take Note were lucky enough to be invited to play at Jo and Tina’s 40th celebrations at Mettricks near Southampton Guildhall. The event was held on the mezzanine so the atmosphere was really nice and intimate.

When Tina and Jo walked in the door, they were greeted by some of their dearest friends and family who had traveled from all over to join the celebration. As soon as the music kicked in did we notice, boy, do they know how to party!

As the band played some of the crowd favourites we even slipped in a few new tracks such as Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feelin’”, Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” and SClub 7’s “Reach”. The reaction to Reach was unbelievable – the roof was nearly blown off with the guests singing so loudly!

The night ended with Jo singing “Valerie” with the band as she had always wanted to sing live and what better place to do it?! We received some wonderful feedback and it was our pleasure coming to play for you.

“Thank you so much for an amazing night last night. You really did make the party go with a bang. Had the best time ever dancing away and sorry for my drunken version of Valerie though it made my night singing with you guys. Fab band, fab atmosphere, fab evening all round.”


“Thank you so much for making our night the best ever!! Will certainly recommend you guys to our friends”


“Take Note you were fantastic last night! My feet hurt from all the dancing I did. Fab fab fab. Loved the girls playing the saxophone & trumpet. Sarah you were brilliant. In fact, you were all brilliant! X”
