More Musings (?!)

Filed under: What's going on — Old School Band @ 7:25 am

That great Musician Sir Thomas Beecham once said “The English dislike Music, but they love the noise it makes”. This might explain how we manage to win the day on many a “difficult” booking by having a very powerful and focussed ensemble sound, courtesy of our state of the art Bose Public Address system, plus our playing skills honed over decades.

Let,s face it, not everyone likes traditional music, but belted out with finesse and style, most will concur that we “sound good”.

When it comes to microphones, we insist that all our Callers use ourUHF Radio mic. Cheaper ones can pick up Taxi channels with embarrasing effect and vice versa.

The first time we used our radio mic, we were at a Manchester Airport Hotel, all went well, with no signal leakage, or so I thought, till I looked in the sky and saw several Jumbo jets doing a “Dos y Do” (pronounced Dozy Doe in Chorley), only joking !!

Anyway we are near the Airport on Thursday night for a wedding Ceilidh, good,  I can  sleep through the Royal Wedding, next day and not have to work thanks to my Eton befrocked mate Dave.
