Retirement Barn Dance 24/11/17

Great time at Totton and Eling cricket club for the retirement celebration for Vanessa. Barbara calling with Mike (accordion), Stephen (guitar) and Luke (drums). Customer feedback……..

Hi Mike,

Just thought I’d send you a quick note to say thank you very much for the great entertainment last night.   Many of the guests hadn’t been to a barn dance before and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thanks to you all and I hope that Barbara’s voice recovers soon from her efforts to encourage dancers onto the floor!
Best wishes,
Vanessa and Dave

Club Social Event 16/9/17

Social barn dance at Brockenhurst village hall. Feedback from customer…………..


Just wanted to say a huge Thank you to your fabulous Band and Caller Dick for all their fabulous music and hard work on Saturday night. Our Barn Dance has been a great success and we couldn’t have done it without the brilliant Woodsiders. Dick was absolutely wonderful – he has the patience of a saint! so many people forgot their ‘right & lefts’ but he was brilliant with them.

I have received so many messages of Thanks from people who have said they had such a good night out and when is the next one!!

A couple of pictures attached showing how many people were up on the floor enjoying themselves and having fun.

Thank you to you all for sharing your talents with us and giving us such a brilliant fundraising night for our local senior citizens in the village.

Many thanks

Sailing club social 21/7/17

Report written for club magazine….

On Friday July 21st a large group of Cowboys and Cowgirls gathered for a night of dancing, great music, good food and good company. We gathered in the Port House, having braved the stormy elements that were clearly determined to drown our steeds, at 7pm.

The band The Woodsiders, were already in position, sitting below the Burgee bunting, on the hay bales, in true ‘barn’ style – plucking hay out of their instruments. And truly fantastic they were – Amanda, no relation, our singer and caller had us all dancing on the floor until our feet wore out. The band were absolutely great – true talents with wonderful playing and singing, getting everyone up and dancing in a lovely, unpressured way. Our thanks to The Woodsiders for making it a very special night.

Feedback from everyone who attended – once they could speak again after all the dancing – was ‘great event – lots of fun, more fun than they had expected with the dancing, a great workout, so gym memberships being cancelled, and a lovely meal – When can we do it again?’ Special mention Valerie and John – RAPs members who joined us and put us all to shame dancing every single dance with great style!
