Surprise 50th Birthday Party

The band is absolutely buzzing after such a fantastic surprise 50th birthday party for Darren organised by his wife Sam. In the morning Darren was sent out while the back garden of their stunning home in Southampton was transformed with bunting, marquees, atmospheric lighting and yes – Take Note UK.

Our first set was played to a dance floor full of children and mothers who were boogieing to tracks such as “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5”. With a bouncy castle and hog roast in the background we performed music that kept the party atmosphere high whilst waiting for the all important Euro 2016 football match that was scheduled to start at 9pm.

“You are the best band everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!”
– Sophie (Age 8), Isabelle (Age 12)



With full a stomach and the guests having enjoyed all the cakes and puddings on offer, we resumed our second set immediately after the football. Having played the obligatory “Celebration” and “Happy Birthday” we moved on with more of our crowd pleasing anthems. The dance floor was absolutely jam packed with people of all ages, as the music carried on into the night. The guests and Birthday boy requesting more music – it was great having everyone singing along with the band – fantastic audience participation!

“Thank-you to Take Note – the AMAZING band that even got ME up dancing on the dance floor!”
– Darren
