‘…if you love what you’re doing, you can’t stop. It’s obsessive.’
Sunday 25th October saw Funky Blue back on their first gig since Lockdown in March. Held at the Grove Theatre in Eastbourne, East Sussex in front of an invited audience this intimate gig showed that nothing had been lost in Lockdown.
Many of us have missed live music in 2020 and this felt like a small step in a positive direction. The venue felt safe to be in with all Covid measures in place. Thank you Grove Theatre Eastbourne.
Women proposing on leap days originates back to the 5th century and an Irish nun called St Bridget. Weary of women having to wait around for their man to propose, she lobbied St Patrick to allow women to do it instead. She sort of got her way. St Patrick gave her every four years. Mmmmm…!
Funky Blue are the resident band on the Braemar cruise ship. They’re a covers band playing Rock, Pop and Motown from the fifties right through to the present day. As well as sail away and deck parties they also play three or four sets a night in the Coral Club Lounge. I’m slightly biased- my partner is the band leader- but they are a fabulous feel good party band that immediately gets the audience on their feet dancing the night away.
When not on the ship they are available for weddings, parties and anything else requiring fabulous live music.
