When you get busy performing at huge corporate events or even large weddings, gigs like this are a joy to be part of. Performing at a private party is different to any other engagement. Sometimes it can even be in a person's own home, even if it is not, private parties are full of people who are the nearest and dearest of the person or persons who are having the celebration.
This means that by the end of the performance I feel like I know that family and groups of friends pretty well. It is always touching to be brought into someone's life for an event that they are cherishing enough to celebrate.
In this case it was a joint 70th birthday for John and Jackie at Warren Lodge in Shepperton. There is not much I can say about John and Jackie apart from they are two of the most lovely, friendly and caring people I have ever performed for. Such a great celebration for such great people.
Thank you John and Jackie.
