February -
It's great that the band has built up a loyal band of supporters over the years. Stephen Coleman is one such as he's been to
countless of our gigs, and so it was lovely that he asked us to play for his special birthday celebrations in St Thomas' church
in Kendal. He really likes our brass section and asked for it specifically, so it was another outing for the Tumbling Tom Big Band.
The band have played there a few times, and its a great venue, with a decent size stage and lots of room for dancing. Fiona
had other engagements and so couldn't make it, so Les called and Iain drummed.
Thanks to Stephen for a lovely evening, with great food and dancing. Happy birthday!

January -
Poynton is a fair drive from our home base in South Lakes, but the ceilidhs are such a delight to play for that we looked forward to
our third visit to their series of monthly dances. The great crowd of near capacity were on the floor the whole time. Starting with our
version of Jon Harvisons song 'Turning of the Year', the evening was non-stop dancing. Thanks to Steve and his team.
Steve said afterwards - Thanks for playing at Poynton again. I thought it was a really good night. I had to leave soon after the
interval, but reports are that it continued being a really good night!

The band, with Les hidden.
