2nd Taj weekend

Hooray - weather better [apart from a dodgy 15 minutes of rain yesterday]....
... and all went well.

Andy Massey joined us on piano from his usual berth at Lion King on the Friday, and Chris Hatt was back with us Saturday having safely showed his sister the way up the chancel the day before...
...his sister and brother-in-law somehow thought that watching us was a great way to celebrate their second day of married life... how lovely of them...

Talking of pianists, Gerard Kenny, who we had met at the Alan Jay Lerner memorial do a few weeks back, came with his wife Jenny to see us... fantastic; not only great to have him in our midst just because, but also they are such splendid enthusiastic people... a boon to any evening.

So our open-air courtyard evenings at the Taj this summer are done... lots of new West End repertoire learnt and many plugs for our new CD emoted...

We found that the best acoustic was to stand in the balcony bar and sing down into the courtyard; quite Elizabethan, but Chris told us that unmiked we filled the whole place and all surrounding buildings with noise... Let's see what they say when we suggest it next time...

Off to Qu├ębec on Thursday...
