Photos from our Great American Songbook Dial Up!

What an evening it was! Thanks to everyone who came along and made it such a special night, and big thanks to Colin McLeod for the following photographic evidence...
 Jon Medcalf and I prepare for take off with our usual vigour, and the Duke Ellington classic 'Take The A Train'
 The hilarious Fongphu Tran and his glove puppet with a number from Avenue Q!
 The wonderful Helen Green adds a little culture to the evening with a bit of Bach
 Our resident poet Jim Connor gave us the appropriately seasonal 'September Song'
Did someone say Maltesers? This way, please...
 Me looking surprisngly bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!
 The wonderful Jenny Branch makes her Dial Up debut...
 ...and it was our pleasure to welcome back her performance partner, the irrepressible Sam Marks!
 Liza Keast performed three American Songbook classics with Jon Medcalf on piano
Shimmering and splendid from top to toe! I want that hat!
As ever, we close with our fabulous farewell track Bye Bye Blackbird!
See you all at the next Dial Up, our first birthday bash, on Friday 21st October! xxx

Take a look and let me know what you think! Much love, Alex xx
