Summer Songs Concert – Bawley Bush Retreat February 15 wrap and more….
Mostly our function room is hired out to people to use it for their own event but we love it when we hold events of our own there. We get to use our own electric rising stage, sound equipment and stage lighting to create the ambiance we love. On Sunday 15th February Rachel and Richard organised a Summer Songs afternoon that attracted a large crowd of local musos and music fans. The afternoon started with the Pigeon House Jazz band, a local 6-piece band that has played traditional jazz at several weddings held at Bawley Bush Retreat. The happy mood created by this excellent band stayed with us all afternoon.
It was terrific to hear Richard and Rachel play their own bluesy numbers and well known standards. While the sun shone outside and wine flowed freely inside other bands followed in quick succession. The most applauded group was Tidal Groove consisting of Himani (keyboard), Sean (uke), and the golden voices of Nicole and Scott (also guitar) but it was also terrific to hear the other local identities…….
Herman and his fantastic band played some sweet tunes, Gary Asanga Bryan and the boys belted out some all time classics, Greg Orphan and friends shone with their beautiful songs and harmonies, not to mention Hard 2 Find, the much needed and appreciated youth in the room, pumping out their own fantastic songs along with their own brand of well loved covers. All in all an absolute musical feast! We need to have another concert asap for those the other talented musos who missed out!
Though everyone brought their own wine and food we were grateful for the assistance of the ever-efficient Denise. Always ready to help our event guests, this time she helped us with the food and cleaning up afterwards. Yes our function room is the truly multi-purpose room we intended it to be. If you know any one who is thinking about a wedding or holding a major birthday event …perhaps even a Sunday afternoon concert.. click here to get in touch.
Keep those good vibrations happening!
