Photoshoot

Hey there Harmonites!

 

Well once again, I have been useless updating the site but it’s been a busy few months with gigs 🙂

We had an awesome night last night back at The Grecian Taverna. We were booked for a private hen party and were joined by the lovely Tracey and her entourage as well as Michelle’s hen night and other friends. It was an incredible atmosphere and the girls partied the night away. Thank you so much for having us there to celebrate with you. We loved every minute of it and also a huge thank you to Sarah and her fabulous team who always do such a great job looking after everyone.

We are off to Launceston town tonight for plenty of big birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate with our loyal and amazing Harmonites! Be ready for a crazy night even if Donna is now on Slimming World and making do with a limited number of gin and slimline tonics…..

Those of you who follow us on Facebook will now be aware that around a month ago we had a photoshoot on the Hoe with a professional photographer and we are now pleased to release a few of these pictures for you to take a look at. Take a look in the gallery and see the brilliant work that Glimpses Photography did with us (thank god for photoshop!)

Keep up to date with our gigs in the gig calendar guys and we will see you at a gig very soon 🙂

Bank Holiday Madness

Hey there Harmonites!!

Here I am again with some more website updates!

Well it has been a crazy Bank Holiday but such a fun one. We are completely shattered from our three gigs but you know what, I wouldn’t change it for the world! We always have the best time!

So, Friday we were thrilled to be back at the Post Office Inn, Plympton now under new management with the lovely Fiona at the helm. We’ve been popping in there now and again as a venue to practice in and we are always made so welcome by Fi. A big thanks to her and the staff of the Postie for allowing us to make a load of racket in there. We’ve learned several new songs for our set in there and there will be many more to come! Also, we should say a huge thank you to top Harmonite, the lovely Alan for supporting us and for taking a few pictures which I shall include on this post.

Then, Saturday we nipped back to the Plymstock Bowling Club and it was great to see so many of the usual faces. They had a very busy open day there that day but still managed to come and join us for a boogie in the evening! Thanks again and we shall see you all towards the end of the year.

Sunday we were back in good ol’ Launceston town livin’ it up with our amazing Launceston Harmonites. What a fab night, lots of familiar friendly faces and as usual we had a lot of fun. Looking forward to our next catch up in a month’s time.

Next weekend is a quiet one but we are thrilled to be back at Raffles on Mutley Plain so make sure that you are there.

Just to finish this off, I’m not normally one for posting things like this but I really want everyone to know that we love this job. Singing is my passion and I’m so thrilled that I can spend each weekend sharing that with such amazing crowds of people. We have so many wonderful supporters who give up their time to come and see us and it really does make us feel so great! Seeing people liking our performances and sharing our social media posts always makes me so appreciative so, thank you harmonites and we will see you again really soon x

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Harmonites! Comin’ atcha live from 2018!

Wow what a busy few weeks we have had culminating in an amazing night at the Sportsman’s Inn, Ivybridge seeing in the New Year. We were very excited to get the chance to dress up again, this time as literary characters. Take a look at the picture and click on the video link (dancing-queen) to see what we decided on wearing. The Sportsman’s put on a fabulous three course meal and there were plenty of whistles and noisemakers to really kickstart the party mood. We really did all have an amazing night, thanks so much to the staff there for taking very good care of us.

As you will be able to see if you take a look at our Gig page, we have another busy year to look forward to. Almost all our Saturdays are booked up already and we are really pleased to have been booked by a few new venues. Make sure, if you are thinking of booking us for your event or you know of a venue looking for something new, that you get in touch. You can contact us through the website, e-mail, Facebook, phone….the opportunities are endless!

Our first gig of 2018 was at Plymstock Bowling Club and we were thrilled to be a part of club member Sheila’s 80th birthday party. We have never seen such a packed dance floor! A fantastic atmosphere and an incredibly fun gig, thanks for having us and Happy Birthday Sheila! We will see you guys again soon in March.

We are off to Raffles next weekend and what will be a double celebration for us as our lovely Emma will be enjoying her own birthday drinkies! Can’t wait!

See you soon, Harmonites. Make sure you’ve added those gigs to your online calendars! 🙂

The Royal Oak on 02/06/18

A busy weekend and a little announcement….

Hey there Harmonites!

We have had such a busy weekend of gigs which is just how we like it! Saturday we were at our New Years venue – The Sportsman’s Inn, Ivybridge and Sunday we were back at our Halloween venue – The Walrus!

So on Saturday it was great to head over to Ivybridge and check out the newly revamped Sportsman’s Inn. What a change since last time we were there, the place is looking absolutely fabulous! Definitely worth a visit if you fancy a meal guys and a great place to book a Christmas party if you haven’t done so already! It was great to see so many people there enjoying the cosy atmosphere and the music. That dance floor was full and hopefully we will be seeing you all again at our New Year’s party….expect more details here very soon….

Then we headed over to The Walrus in town and straight away bumped into many familiar faces. Another great night with Karen G and the usual fab Sunday Club. We had a great chat with some people in our break who were thrilled to have discovered The Walrus and hear some 80s tunes!! Thanks to all who came along for a dance!

So….little announcement time….

For those dedicated Harmonites who put up with our relentless live videos on Facebook, you will have been waiting to hear the news of our most recent merchandising which will be available to purchase RIGHT NOW!

Drum roll please (Click on the question mark to see for yourself!)

The Newmarket Inn and RBL Plympton, Nov ’17

Good morning Harmonites, comin’ atcha live from the dining room….

I started doing the ironing 5 minutes ago and then decided that updating the website would be a far better use of my time than ironing school uniforms….that and I promised to update the site after each gig and already I’ve fallen behind!

So here I am to update you on past goings on in Launceston town and Plympton!!

Well, this month we had to move our usual Saturday slot in Launceston to a Friday due to other commitments and were very pleased to be joined by several of our usual amazing Launceston Harmonites! Dan Gannon, as ever, was full of energy, busting several moves on the dance floor and entertaining the crowd! He had Gwen, Mike, Lauren and Dawn in stitches and, being professional, we tried to keep a straight face but it was impossible! A lot of fun all round! Thanks Dan Gannon! Jo had made a start on the Christmas decorations too, well done that girl! Tinsel all around, can’t wait to see it all finished when we head back in December.

Then last Saturday, we nipped over to RBL Plympton. Now, I have recently been bitten by the shopping bug and have acquired a few new outfits for each gig (you may have noticed). It just turns out that the dress I wore to Launceston was torn in several places when we arrived at the gig 🙁 . I was gutted as it was a new dress (surprise) so decided to take it back to the shop the next day. They very kindly agreed to let me swap it for another dress and so, I ended uo with the sparkly number I wore to Plympton.

No tearing of this dress, it just scratched the hell out of my arms! The things I do for gigs! COMMITMENT!

Anyhoo, I’m gonna have to find some arm protectors next time I brave that dress…..do they exist?!

Don’t forget guys, we have a busy line up this weekend. You can find us at the Sportsman’s in Ivybridge on Saturday and at the Walrus on Sunday. Come and ‘Live it up’.

I shall now leave you with some pictures from Plympton and dress number 2…..

Halloween ’17

Hey there Harmonites! Halloween updates comin’ atcha

So, normally I’m not one to get overly involved with Halloween but mainly thanks to my 5 year old, we’ve been swept up by everything haunted and spooky for the last couple of years….oh and obviously we have to trick or treat! Pretty sure we still have sweets left over from 2016…..

However, if there is a chance for me to buy a new fancy dress costume, I’m there 🙂

So, a few weeks ago I was sent a photo of Andy’s plan for his Halloween costume and immediately I was in hysterics. The costume had been suggested to him by Emma as it was something she had spare from a past Halloween party and Andy wasn’t sure. After a lot of begging he agreed to brave it and I hit eBay looking for a suitable costume for myself. We were heading for the Walrus Halloween Party and we knew that we had to be dressed to impress.

We arrived Saturday night and were welcomed by the fab bar staff all embracing the Halloween vibe with fantastic costumes and makeup – all expertly done by Becca. The Walrus had had a makeover too with cobwebs hanging in every corner and spooky ghosts and figures hanging from the ceiling. When we made it over to the stage area we met some new scary friends to share the stage with who sang along and moved to the music (check out the pictures in the gallery!)

The Walrus was packed and it was great to see so many people there enjoying the Halloween atmosphere. Once again, an amazing night and my best moment of the night was witnessing Andy’s arrival in his pumpkin costume!

Thanks for joining us Harmonites, and we may see you in Launceston on Friday

Happy Thursday, Harmonites!

Hey there Harmonites!

Thought I’d take the opportunity to write a new post for the website as I have been hit by the dreaded lurgy and am going slowly crazy sitting still all day (not like me at all!) I would much prefer being out and about but there we go….must be fit and well for our exciting gig this coming Saturday!

Why do I get ill at half term?

So this Saturday we would love you to join us for our big Halloween gig at The Walrus. We will be comin’ atcha live from 9pm in our very finest fancy dress. Now, a LOT of thought, time and effort has gone into preparing these outfits so don’t miss your chance to see for yourself!! In fact, I shall leave a few clues as to Donna’s nail ideas and outfit on here (exclusively on the website only!)

So throw on your finest and spookiest fancy dress, plus your dancing shoes and join us at The Walrus this Saturday 28th October from 9pm!halloween nails-2halloween-dress nails-1
