Happy Special Birthday

A few years ago we were asked to perform at a wedding… and the client loved the music so much he invited us back to perform at his 50th Birthday party… and the client loved the music so much he invited us back to perform at a very special 70th birthday party.

This surprise party was held in lovely gardens overlooking the fabulous Dordogne countryside, not far from the tiny village of St Victor. Rain threatened so a last minute marquee was arranged, which of course meant that a beautiful evening was guaranteed!  Nonetheless, we love a big marquee so it was a thumbs up from The Candies.

We arrived and installed and waited for the guest to arrive and surprise the birthday boy; what a joy to see so many friends greet each other and hug and reminisce on old times.

As they mingled we agreed that whilst we are invited to perform at a range of venues (from enchanting chateaux, to campsites bursting at the seams, to the odd boat show and oodles of fabulous weddings) being part of these small, special parties is a privilege.

We started the evening with an hour of Fabulously Vintage and after the speeches and Happy Birthday’s and cake, we finished with an hour of Motown and Disco… and these lovely people danced through both the Vintage and the Disco… they sang and clapped and generally made us feel so very welcome!

What a great evening!  What a great job we have!  Happy Birthday Mike… and many many many happy returns!
