The Swinging Bass Trio played at the National Trust’s Packwood House, near Solihull, in late July for a social evening thanking the volunteers for their time and contributions. The trio, saxophone, keyboard & double bass, played background music which was tuneful, allowing the guests to chat and enjoy the evening.
There have been two amazing Summer Parties at Lacock Abbey that The Swinging Bass Band has recently played at. One was for the National Trust Volunteers and the other for the village and parish. We played a mix of jazz & swing, with Sinatra & Nat King Cole hits.
The weather was perfect, the sun was out, not a drop of rain, and great to see so many people there!
