#55. Private Party, Sandhurst. 30.06.12.

The Phantoms go to the Ball.
The venue for the evening was Sandhurst’s historic Old College Dining Room and after the band had eventually worked out how to tie a bow tie (OK, so some of them were clip on’s!) we took to the stage and instantly enticed the diners away from the remains of their cheese plate and up onto the dance floor. For the next few hours the Phantoms (interspersed with a little help from the disco) kept the troops in the party mood with the revelers dancing late into the night. And even when it was time for the Phantoms to finish their final set with a rousing rendition of the Beatles ‘Twist & Shout’, there was still more entertainment to come! The hard core were then treated to a fantastic end to the evening (or early start to the morning!) when the bands sound man (Sam Wansborough) found himself leading an impromptu drunken sing along on the piano in the bar! Yes, we really did manage an acoustic version of Bohemian Rhapsody! A great night was had by all and after plenty of complimentary comments from both party goers and the event organisers we may even get to do it all again next year. Let’s hope so as it would be nice to get some wear out of our brand new dickie bows! The Phantoms had never looked so smart!

The Phantoms were: Mark Gibson (lead vocals & keys), Kevin Rogers (guitar), Jason Biggs (guitar & vocals), Jon Novice (bass & vocals) & Alun Westoll (drums & vocals).
