News from the world of 'Andy B Goode'.
Discounted gig pricing is currently available for 2019 for some local events.
This year I am giving a few FREE gigs to local worthy causes (Hospices, Charities, etc) so inquire soon if you represent a organisation that may enjoy some Vintage Rat Pack / Rock n Roll / 1940s fun.
Since I started, I have always sang a few Sinatra and Nat King Cole songs amongst the Rock and Roll hits. These were always very popular and folks often asked for more of the same. I oblidged. In 2018 I launched a specific Rat Pack set. So if you enjoy a little Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and other Crooners, do talk to me about a Rat Pack gig ... Songs

Snippets of many of my songs can be seen in my 'Summer Showreel 2016', which was recorded live at St Pauls Church Dosthill Summer Vintage Fete.
Themed nights are always enjoyable, as the audience comes ready to enjoy the experience. Some like to dress up.
Over 2018 I performed at a few local festivals which was a blast. 'Church Gresley Proms in the Park' and 'Coleville Music in the Park' were particularly fun.
The Loughborough Loves Vintage Good Friday Vintage 1950s Tea Dance was a big hit. I sang Rock n Roll while fabulous Red and Ginger lead the dancing. They are a pair of top quality dance teachers who defy gravity with their fancy footwork. I can whole-heartedly recommend them. Can't wait for them to arrange more events!
I sang at the 'Curly Magpie Vintage and Handmade Fair'.
The day was sunny and Calke Abbey was a beautiful venue.
Live entertainment also came from the lovely female vintage soloist 'Rebecca Jayne' and the skilled 'Kevin Goodall Saxophonist'. The fair was bustling with 1000s of people enjoying the day.
Loughborough Loves Vintage Vintage Fayre.
A lovely little vintage afternoon.
As it was nearly Valentines day week, I sang Rock and Roll and Crooned some Love songs. Also live entertainment came from the talented 'Eleanor Mattley'. There were Vintage stalls selling: clothing, accessories, homewares. The 'Pop up tea room' served amazing cakes, milkshakes and afternoon Teas.
Outside the lovely 'Curly Magpie' vintage shop. I sung classic Rock and Crooner tunes while people danced in the street. It was energetic 1950s Rock n Roll and tasty food from all over the world...What more could you want? I've sung in the town centre many times this year and it has been fun meeting loads of vintage fans.
It's great singing at care homes. See their faces light up as they recognise a favourite song from their youth. You just watch them sing along enjoying those classics and know all that practicing is worthwhile. At Christmas time, I do a special themed set that includes seasonal sing along tunes.
Every year I do birthday parties for those who require something a bit special. 50th Wedding anniversaries are always great fun. People normally sing along and dance and their time away.
Food Gusto Fayre in the Tamworth Castle, Pleasure Grounds. A Food Festival in Tamworth. I performed with 'The Jays Vintage' multiple times during the day.
What a lovely sunny day it was so the beautiful 1940s Andrews Sisters style Vintage Harmonies and Energetic 1950s Rock n Roll really added to the upbeat atmosphere. The food was so really varied and most tasty. So many spicy flavours. One for next years diary... I need some of those amazing meat pies and samosas.
I provided live music beside the swimming pool as people had a cream tea. This included: barbecue, cream teas, coconut shy, skittles competition, vintage steam engine, delicious home made ice cream, stalls and the annual dog show.
I performed "Teenager in Love" live on the top local radio station TCR FM (www.tcrfm.co.uk).
This was a great local vintage fayre in Poleworth. Loads of stalls with Dresses and other collectables. I sang for a couple of hours to add a retro touch. I even bought a few xmas presents!
St. Pauls Dosthill: A classic British summer Fete in Dosthill at the pretty Church. Loads of stalls, a barbeque and yummy cakes were available. Many friends came and I sang lots of new songs (while avoiding the light showers). People joined in on some songs, which was lovely.
