Friday 13th April 2018
So, on Wednesday the 11th of April, we decided to take a trip to the “Big Smoke” to perform at Old Fashioned Live. This is a fabulously vintage Open Mic night held at The Old Queens Head near Angel. You are only allowed to perform songs from pre 1965, so we thought this was right up our street!
We’ll get to the performance a bit later (which was fab by the way), because we equally had a great time during the afternoon. We decided to make a day of it and treat ourselves to a spot of lunch. We then headed over to The Vivien of Holloway shop to take full advantage of the amazing sale that is STILL currently going on! Seriously, like nearly 80% off some items. We got some very pretty outfits that we cant wait to show you at our upcoming summer gigs! So many colours! This is a shop only sale and there’s still a few days left! Sale ends on until the 15th of April, so what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a bargain!!
Vivien was also kind enough to let us try on some of the new lines coming VERY soon! Victoria and had so much fun getting to play dress up! It’s given us some great outfit inspiration. Our particular favourites being the Palm Print Sarongs and Bombshell dresses, the Kitty Check in Blue and Rust and some very tropical Lana’s! Keep your eyes peeled for those.
Feeling particularly glam, we had a whistle stop dinner and made tracks over to The Old Queen’s Head. Old Fashioned Live is held in the upstairs function room of the pub and everything about this venue oozes sultry jazz bar. Low lighting, private booths, misty mirrors its every Jazz lover’s dream.
Our ears were treated to some wonderful talent on the night including The Old Fashioned House Band, adding their spin on some great standards. We were delighted to play one of our favourite songs with them! It was certainly “Too Darn Hot” on that stage! Watch a video of our performance here.
We can’t recommend this event enough! What a great way to fill your Wednesday evening? Even if you’re not a singer, kick back with a drink and be entertained by London’s finest. Make sure you follow the Old Fashioned Live Facebook page for more details on upcoming events, and also check out their Instagram for insights into the wonderful people that have performed there.
We’ll definitely be going back! x
