With just my two regular holiday complex venues, Golden Park and Aqua Vista, to start in the next few weeks, my 2012 season has got off to a fantastic start ! So thanks to everyone who has so far shaken off the winter blues and come along to hear me and Glen perform.
Last night was our first night of the season at the Cavern in Altinkum. An appreciative audience gave us fabulous feedback about how enjoyable their night was, so thanks for your very kind words. I especially loved the request for some Engelbert given that I love singing his songs, and I hope he appreciates what I am doing to promote his quest for victory at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest :)
As for the dancing last night….. well the Duracell rabbit had nothing on the guy who danced continuously throughout the night. I was exhausted watching him as I sang, and he was still dancing to the disco tunes from the DJ desk an hour after I had finished and was downing my third alcoholic beverage of the night !
My other venues have been superb too. The diners at Lush Bar and Cafe have enjoyed delicious meals and then worked off those extra calories with some energetic after-dinner dancing. Two weeks now of a good crowd with some great movers on the dancefloor (as well as outside on the terrace), has given us a huge lift and raised our hopes of a good season.
U2 Leon’s Bar was packed last Monday night for our debut gig at this new venue. Always a popular bar with the ex-pats and holiday home owners, we had a superb night there, and enjoyed our usual mixing with the crowd afterwards for a laugh and a joke over a few beers. I am hoping this venue will be a very popular gig amongst our followers and the ‘locals’ as it is a really good atmosphere in this bar.
And of course, last but not least, there is the superb Pasa in Akbuk. Last week we were inside as it was still quite chilly outdoors. But this never deters the audience from getting to their feet and having a few boogies. This venue is definitely a favourite of mine, as the diners are always ready for a good night of song and dance after enjoying a culinary delight from Pasa’s fabulous menu, and watching the gorgeous sunset over Akbuk bay. Bring on tonight at Pasa, where hopefully we will be outdoors given that the sun has now decided to start warming up our Mediterranean air.
