Breaking Up Is Hard to Do
No, not us, silly! Our latest tune for the Halstead Bop on 13th April is a 5 part version of Neil Sedaka’s classic from 1962. Don’t forget, tickets are £7.50 and are available on the night or by ringing 01787 476480.
Halstead Parish Council have asked us along to provide music for dancing on Sunday 13th April at Queens Hall, Chipping Hill, Halstead from 7.30pm.
We’re polishing up our swing and 1950s numbers, including this 1958 ditty from the Maguire Sisters which we reckon is the sugariest tune ever!
