13th April 40s/50s Swing Night, Halstead

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!
