RAF Benson and Beaumanor Hall

2nd March 2019

RAF Benson Summer Ball Haiwian night

All looked good for this Spring ball,  held in the Helicopter hanger at RAF Benson. Our guests made numerous sorties to the Cocktail bar ( sorties to the bar , get it )  which kept the drinks flowing and the SUPERFUZZ kept them dancing. The order of the evening was high energy, high tempo songs . Bet you look good by the Arctic Monkeys sent them delirious, whilst Don’t look back in Anger by Oasis had them singing and swaying. Thanks to Jess for getting up on stage and singing Mr Brightside with us.

Events for the forces can be a bit raucous,( we always expect a fight )  ; this one passed off peacefully. The only injury happened in the final 10 mins when Jess stood on a shard of glass from a broken pint glass, Ouch! Keep your shoes on girls !

By the way , I would never put one toe in a helicopter , so hats off to you mental whirlybirds !

One of our happy haunts is Beaumanor hall in Leicestershire . We have performed there several times and always enjoy it.

Jess and Adam, the bride and groom booked the band back in January 2018 , their attention to detail was spot on.

Beaumanor Hall in Leicestershire  has a super function room and although the guests were scattered all over the place early doors , they were all good enough to come and dance with the band after the food and join in.

Our groom Adam,  even had a go singing  “Sex on Fire ” which sent the audience into raptures and the best man set the place alight with a rendition of Mustang Sally . Are we turning into a bandeoke outfit , we don’t mind folks , it all adds to the evening.

The disco ran to well after 12.30 am with some unusual song requests coming from the younger guests. If I hear “Baby Shark” once more I might just cry.  Cotton Eyed Joe seemed to be a favourite with the assembled , as they all danced in unison which looked just amazing. How do you follow that , I asked myself ? Macarrena obviously , doh .The allure of Abba Dancing Queen never seems to pass either , moths to a flame !!

Last song on the decks was Franks Sianatra’s  New York , New York , you know— the dance circle , kick your legs all together , left then right  , never fails .  It’s up to you NEW YORK — NEW YORK !!!!!

We have had a cracking start to this years wedding season 2019 , long may it continue
