PJB concert with TapSwing

Last night we did our first concert of 2012 at the Salle Bellegrave in Pessac in association with the TapSwing school of dance. We did a concert with them some years ago and it was wonderful to blast out our swing numbers while people threw each other round the floor.

Last night was a bit more low-key, though the Salle Bellegrave is a BIG HALL. Concerts can be frustrating experiences. There's lots of waiting around for the sound engineers, for example. But having a snack laid on helps (!) as does the chance to chat about stuff in general.

We were one singer down - no François-Marie - so Laetitia had to carry the sung items including the grand finale - As long as I'm singing, which ends with a real blast. She rose magnificently to the occasion, and the TapSwing folk were easily our most appreciative audience ever. Also we fielded five trombones and we played well.
