What a long day, 320 miles for the gig; Haven Holidays Perrans Sands Owners Party 2014. And so the day begins the sun is shining, roads not too busy and its motorway all the way. Arrive in Perranporth for sound check and meet the Entertainment team Byron Scott and some Ihave known for a few years, so was good to catch up. The band that was on with me had already been in and set up - nice young lads good sound from Leeds called REEM.
The evening kicks off with the team and then the Bands first set, the theme for the owners party was School Daze and it was really good, lots of owners joining in with costumes. Then the food stew and dumplings followed by rice pudding! Dont think we enjoyed it back then ha ha, so now its time for the Funstars to take to the stage and perform their new show for 2014 - Girls On Film. Back to the 80s we go. The team were excited and nervous but it went off fantastic, some great songs and costumes - leg warmers and all florecent - oh I remember them well. They came off very happy with there performance but no time to reflect they had about 5 mins then back on to do the Holiday resorts famous party dances with the managerment team.
Then its my turn, took to the stage with loads of children sat around the dance floor, started to think oh no they will be running around but no they sat listened watched and joined in which was so nice to see. Also the age group of the audience was from babys to great grandparents which was nice, so gags for the older audience and gags for the younger then songs for all. Iwas very pleased with my performance and had some nice feed back, so quick chat with the team, then load the car and make my way home... another 320 mile!! Pleased that for the first time in a long time there was no road closures Result.
Finally just a really big thank you to Haven Holidays and Peran Sands Holiday park for making me feel welcome and a big thank you to Byron Scott and the rest of the entertainment team - have a fantastic 2014!
