I had the pleasure of performing my 1940s show ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’ recently at the RAFA Club in Prestwick as part of their celebrations to commemorate the Battle of Britain. What a lovely, warm, friendly club – special thanks go to Del Granger for his help during the evening.
Everybody had a great time, and boy do they love to dance in that club! The dancefloor was packed from start to finish, with some very smooth movers – quicksteps, foxtrots, jives, rock ‘n’ roll, plus even a bit of line-dancing thrown in for good measure. We also all enjoyed some good old fashioned singalongs – well, who can resist the lure of those classic songs by such popular performers as Gracie Fields, The Andrews Sisters, and of course the legendary Dame Vera Lynn?
I received some wonderful feedback for my 1940s show asking me to return soon, so hopefully it won’t be my last time at such a welcoming club.
Here’s a link to my rendition of one of the great 1940s songs featured in the show: “We’ll Meet Again”
