I enjoy learning new songs and harmonies, and our weekly practices are a tonic after a hard week at work. The highlight of our year is the Christmas show, where we have other guest performers and some bants with our loyal fans. Although it involves a lot of pre-show practicing (and me barking at the rest of the band "let's do this one without the music") it's really rewarding when it all comes together.
We’ve played a load of songs over years and probably have about 30 in our back repertoire now, given the speed we play most numbers we could almost fill a whole hour. My favourite right now is probably ‘I’m too Sexy’, not just because it was my suggestion to do or that it mentions sexy shirts!
On the subject of which…my day job is making shirts that fit different bodies well. Although I do own a whole wardrobe of Hawaiian shirts I was pleased when it was suggested that it was time for a new look and perhaps GFW Clothing could supply the shirts. We choose a stunning black and white lips short sleeve shirt - the perfect outfit to perform our song ‘Lucky Lips’.
