On Saturday I played with Chris Dean’s Syd Lawrence Orchestra up in Glasgow for a huge function…it was at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow, and was for a massive charity event in the style of Strictly Come Dancing. The band played as people came in, and then played throughout the evening for selected couples who had practiced a certain type of dance. Then two pros from the show itself came on, and danced incredibly! We played a dance set to finish off the evening, playing a fun selection of classic bigband repertoire. Worth noting the Bon Accord pub across the road, a famous pub in Glasgow, and full of plenty of lovely real ales and whiskies! Afraid I didn’t get to try very many, but the local Cart Noir brewed in Glasgow was seriously dark, and filling! haha! A fun trip up to Scotland with a great band!
