Last night, I went to watch a local 20 piece swing band - The Managers.
It was at a delightful northern working mens club (!) - and although the band were fantastic, the venue ruined it by hiring a "comedienne" for the interval. Cue bawdy jokes, badly sung Meatloaf and Cher covers and a blow up doll party game. Completely and utterly random, hideous and not at all suited to the brilliant big band performance. The band were all mortified as were most of the audience (me included!) thank goodness the band played a brilliant second set to make up for it!
