The Function Band for Weddings, Private Parties & Corporate Events

The RAF Take the A Train and the biplane!

We had a great little outing last Thursday to the Swindon Steam Museum where Paul Weinreb, Olly Blanchflower and myself (Jeanie Barton) played a function for the RAF.  As a trio (Paul on piano, Olly on double bass and me warbling) we played two one hour sets; the first of which was probably our most unusual location yet – a full sized indoor steam train platform – of course the obvious song Take the A Train had to complete that set.

We then carried our kit through to the next room – a big event hall which was laid out beautifully by the organiser Planet Pursuits Event Management who had even brought in a classic biplane earlier that morning to complete the look.  I think you can see we had some fun and so did the RAF, we were particularly chuffed (excuse the pun) by the compliments paid to us by many of the American guests as we were after all playing their music…
