Hey everyone! Sorry it's been a while since we posted on here but we have been super busy with lots of lovely events up and down the country! So we thought we'd give you the low down on everything we've been up to in June and July so far....supposed to be the 'Summer' but we'd be reluctant to use that word!!! Mr Sunshine where have you been on all those outdoor gigs?!
We then had a smashing wedding reception to perform at. Trying to sneak in through the back door, so as not to spoil the surprise for the guests was FUN! Love the random things we need to do sometime! We LOVE a good wedding and now that Cupcake Lynne is engaged to be married next July..eeeeeek....we are super excited at the thought of another Cupcake wedding!
As we ventured into the last few weeks of June things got a little crazy-mental!!! With Stirling, Glasgow and Edinburgh's Armed Forces Day celebrations and The Glasgow Mela, The Cupcake gals were working hard in rehearsals prepping for all the events! All the events were SUPER! Highlights included.....
1. Playing Tug-o-War with some army and RAF lads at Stirling's AFD! They reeeeeeally needed our assistance!
2. Meeting our friend the bishop, Ronnie again at Glasgow AFD, who we met this time last year! He was soooo charming!
3. Seeing a RAF flypast up close at Edinburgh AFD! Wow!
4. Getting such a great crowd reaction at the Glasgow Mela!
5. Having the Sea Cadets join us in a Cupcake Stroll! Excellent!
We then went on to perform at Ayr Town Hall to open for the Ayrshire choir and got a great response from the crowd! Crrrrrrrazeeeeeee quick changes side-of-stage and one which resulted in Carol wearing the wrong trousers, but we got through it with poise and grace (just!) and had a blast in the process!
And before we knew it it was July!!! We entertained the RAF boys at their Summer Social at a gorgeous sailing club at Dalgety Bay on 4th July and even had some competiton on our hands when the 'Beefcakes' challenged us to a dance off! Soooo funny and we're raging we didn't get any pics!!! Grrrrrr! We then hotfooted it to Dundee on Saturday 14th July to take part in the Dundee Dance Walk! Another awesome day of music and dance! Was so inspiring to see people of all walks of life enjoying various styles of dance and having a go! We completed the day with everyone outside the stunning McManus gallery dancing a Cupcake Stroll! Memories are made of this kinda stuff! x
And here we are, nearly at the end of July. We have another 4 events before the month is out and then some of us are off on holiday!!!!!!! Paris here we come...can't wait to see Cupcake Eva in her new home!
Let us take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support, the well wishes, the love and all the laughs! We couldn't do it without you and we will always look back at every gig fondly beacuse you were there!
