Summertime Swing SuccessSt Hill Charity Concert SPECIAL OFFER
Still Spreading the Sunshine USA TourMini Silent EpicGig Guide

Hello there,
It's been such a crazy month that there wasn't a spare minute to send out an August newsletter. In the past few weeks alone we have been to Bulgaria, Serbia, Sicily, Spain, Edinburgh, France and Belgium as well as up and down England! It doesn't stop there either, in the next couple of weeks, after a mini tour of the West Country we're "Off on the road to Morocco, like Webster's dictionary we're Morocco bound!" and then Florida in October then back to the USA in November! WOOHOO! Be sure tofollow us Twitter, Youtube and FaceBook to get up-to-date, um...updates!

Summertime Swing Best Ever!

A massive thank you to everyone that helped organize, promote, sell tickets for, or anything else to do with Summertime Swing which was held on 7th August this year. A special thanks to Chas McDevitt, Toni Elizabeth Prima, Si Cranstoun, Rebecca Grant, Keith Ball, The Swing Kids, Jiveswing.com as well as DJs Rob "Be-Bop", Strollin' Steve and MC Adam Hoffman for taking part.

It was the best ever in all respects including attendance and especially money raised for charity. We have raised about £7000 for the Sussex Air Ambulance (about double last years' total!) and this will be presented at the Saint HIll Charity event in October (see below for details).

We were also presented on stage with our Silver Telly Award by songwriter Sir Guy Fletcher OBE who is also chairman of the PRS (Performing Rights Society) and the only Brit to be commissioned to write songs for Elvis. As a further suprise, the Kala Ukulele Company sent us a special yellow "Bring Me Sunshine" signature semi acoustic ukulele. Thanks Kala! Check out their website for some lovely ukes!
