Strictly Sunshine

Strictly SunshineLast Saturday Lisa Riley and Robin Windsor did the quickstep to our version of Bring Me Sunshine on TV's most popular show, Strictly Come Dancing (that's our version of "Dancing With The Stars" for you non UK savvy people!).

They did a fantastic job, full of fun and energy (just as we'd expect to one of our songs!) and were both even dressed in bright yellow! Check out the performance HERE. They both even sent us messages that they loved our version of the song and hope we liked what they did to it. We did!

Sheik, Rattle & Roll

We just got back from our first ever trip to the U.A.E. where we spent two days in Dubai with the London Season of which we are the official band. They transplanted the event to somewhat warmer climes in aid of charity and the ball took place right in front the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.

Check out our last Video Blog right from that spot (see above)!
