Thanks to plenty of sunshine over the summer, people have been in  a party mood.

I have had gigs at a garden party in Blaby, which even though the weather looked a bit suspect, managed to stay dry until about 11pm.

It was nice for me because I knew a lot of the people at the party so in between sets Carole and I had a chance to catch up with friends.

 

The second gig was at a dinner party on the Isle of Wight.  I always take a sax with me on holiday and try and do a bit of busking.  Well this time, whilst busking I was asked to play at a dinner party.

The venue was a lovely house built in 1820 over looking the sea at Ventnor.

As you can see from the picture, the house has a large conservatory built at the same time as the house, which is were the party was held.

It was a very relaxed and informal affair with only about 8 guests, loads of conversation, some lovely food and dancing.  It was something they decided to do at the last minute to celebrate Cowes week.  I really enjoyed this type of gig and would love to do more.

They have asked me to contact them again if I am on holiday in the Isle of Wight next year so it could become an annual event!
