 It is good to see this event is getting busier again, after a quiet spell in the summer.
The next visit to The Crown Inn will be on 10th February.

An unusual gig.

Well it's not often that your audience is in a  lift!

We were playing in Ashton Art Gallery, the audience were members of Tameside Dementia Support Group.

After a successful first set, with plenty of audience participation - singing, shaky eggs, clapping and even dancing, everyone was ready for a short break to consume tea and mince pies.

We became aware of an intermittent alarm bell, which turned out to be the lift. Six members of our audience were stopped between floors.

The organiser asked us to resume playing in order to distract everyone else and we ended up playing on for an extra 45 minutes until the fire brigade arrived to rescue them and then used an evac chair to take the less mobile people downstairs.

As far as I can tell they were not particularly upset by the incident, certainly some considered it a great adventure, especially those who used the evac chair.

Apparently, they were able to hear us playing and were singing along to the Christmas songs.
