(slightly late) PRESIDENTIAL UPDATE #3

Hi folks,

Apologies for the lateness but it’s been a bit of a mad week – finally settled down with a glass of wine and an oven pizza so I now feel relaxed enough to perform my favourite weekly presidential duty.

First up: gig tomorrow!

  • Please arrive at 12pm to help bring stands over from the MC and set up beforehand – we’ll be playing 12.30pm-2pm (depending on how many solos Tobie takes on the chicken);
  • If you have a gig shirt/any big band merch – bring it! If you’re not playing for one of the halves then please make sure you offer it to someone who is on stage (if they don’t already have one).
  • If you don’t have any merch, just wear a plain white/black t-shirt.
  • Check out JB’s Facebook post on the group for a players list, and expect a set list soon!

Next up: bowling!

  • Big Band is having its first sober (not compulsory) social (maybe ever?) next week on Tuesday – we’re going bowling in Leamington!
  • Meet at Old Lib at 7.30pm and expect to have a lovely wholesome evening – check out Immi’s Facebook event for more deets!

Finally: singers!

  • Thank you to everyone who came along to our singers auditions yesterday, including those who auditioned – every candidate was great and we really enjoyed hearing all of your performances!
  • A huge congratulations to our new singers Suvi and Naqib who will be joining us as singers as of this week – the band was very impressed with your auditions and we really look forward to having you with us for the next two years!

Thanks to everyone for another lovely wholesome Big Band week, and I can’t wait to see you all on Tuesday.

Also, if you’re interested in our minitour to Newcastle (happening on the weekend of week 7, 15th – 17th of November), please say you’re going on Kieran’s event so we can get a good idea of numbers!

So much presidential love,

Gabe xxxx
