Action For AT are a great charity. At the moment, they are small, but the grow in size every year… and this was the second fundraising event we had played in the space of a year. We choose a charity each year to support, playing for a reduced fee – and this year it was the very worthwhile Action For AT!!!
We hit the stage around 10.45, and played through until 12.30. Up until that point, the guests had been enjoying fine food and drink, with Rollercoaster’s Alex Keys playing his own blend of dinner jazz. It was a 20’s theme for the night – cocktail duo Rob and Chris had played during the drinks reception earlier, knocking out the perfect blend of gypsy jazz. It was a fundraiser, and third song in, it was great to announce that the guests had raised £37,000 for the charity!
It was a top night – the crowd were dressed to perfection, the dancing was a pleasure to witness… and venue looked lovely. High thanks for looking after us, and well done to all involved, and to all who helped contribute to such a worthwhile cause.
