Birthday Party Entertainment in Devon!

We had two fantastic gigs last weekend. One was in Tuscany and the other was birthday party entertainment in Devon! We’ve been lucky enough to play all over the world – Monaco, Las Vegas, St Moritz, Dubai. For the fabulous, rich and famous, but this birthday party in Devon was up there with the best. It was in Dartmouth (which we had never even heard of). We all went down there the night before, because we needed to sound-check early afternoon the next day. It was so far that we didn’t trust the English Saturday traffic. The family put us up in a beautiful 5 bedroom chalet that they own, in a place called Hillfield Village which is a development of luxury holiday homes set in farmland and woodland just outside Dartmouth.

The party was for a gentleman’s 60th birthday. And it was held at his incredible house set on a piece of headland high above the River Dart Yacht Harbour just in from the English Channel. We had been told that we were performing from the top of the “garage”. We had pictured this before the day and hadn’t expected anything like what we saw! Part of the house opened out onto a roof terrace on top of a spectacular garage where a stage had been constructed. The view from the stage was one of the best that we have ever seen.

Steve & Julie were so lovely to us, inviting us into their house and telling us to enjoy the party like all the other guests. The venue was beautiful, the band were on form and our set went down perfectly. We couldn’t get off the stage at the end of the night!

The line-up

Stuart Anning on drums
Holly Madge on percussion
Nick Owen on bass
Ben Lochrie on guitar
David Brooks on keys
Simon Kaylor on sax
Matt Robinson on trumpet
TJ Davis, Patrick Reis and Natasha Andrews on vocals

There was a wide age-range in the audience from 20s – 80s so we did a set of crowd-pleasers. From the 60s to the current charts. Everything from Stevie Wonder’s “Signed Sealed Delivered” through to “Giant” by Rag n Bone Man. We got birthday boy Steve up on stage while the whole party sang happy birthday to him an then he and Julie were on the dance floor right to the end of our set.

One day all gigs will be like this!!
