The BlueBelles are always delighted to be asked to sing at events in the local community. People often ask where we are from. There is no simple answer to this. We rehearse in Easton Royal in Wiltshire but none of the BlueBelles actually live there! Most of us hail from Pewsey, Burbage and the surrounding villages but a couple live further afield.
Nevertheless our local community is essentially Marlborough and the villages to the South which include Burbage. We were therefore delighted when we were asked to sing at a monthly meeting of something called Burbage Good Companions.
The event was set to coincide (replace) our weekly rehearsal on a Thursday evening. However, it also occurred right in the middle of half term which is potentially a tricky time for some of our members with family who tend to go away. Nevertheless, five BlueBelles could be found who were able to come and sing to the lovely people of Burbage and fortunately we had at least one from each part! It’s never pleasing when Jules attempts to replace anything other than the bass line!
In the video below you can see 5 BlueBelles plus Jules performing ‘The Way you Look tonight’ for Burbage Good Companions.
As well as providing entertainment for the evening, we were also invited to join the good companions for a supper of Cheese and wine. I’m not sure that either of these are particularly conducive to singing but the BlueBelles are always delighted to be fed!
Before going on stage we snuck out for a quick warm up in the car park and then embarked on our 30 minute set which was well received.
