"Thank you again for performing such a wonderful set for us at The Savoy last night. You were exceptional."
A 7 Piece swing orchestra evoking dance gigs of the 1920s 30s & 40s
The 7 piece outfit has been booked to play the Twinwood festival in Bedford this summer. Twinwood is the biggest and best vintage festival of them all and one of the largest vintage music festivals in Europe. With an outdoor arena, 11 venues and over 60 acts, The Silver Ghosts will be sharing the stage with such musical luminaries as The Kings Cross Hot Club, The Picadilly Dance Orchestra, and Benoit Veillefont and his Orchestra.
The outfit was recently hired to perform for Go Ape - forest adventure experiences - for a treat for their 5,000,000th customer. The stunt was videod for their social media.. lets see if we go viral!
The adventurer had no idea what was in store for her when she completed her course at the Go Ape forest adventure course at Trent Park. Strolling towards the finish point after her stint, The Silver Ghosts and a dozen guys in ape suits sprung out from behind the trees. The monkeys presented the astonished customer with all sorts of goodies to our rendition of King of the Swingers, before we all disappeared again into the wilderness, leaving the encumbered trekker somewhat dumbfounded! What a fun gig...
The full house performance at Café in the Crypt - the underground venue at St. Martins-in-the-Fields in Trafalagar square - surprised the management who said of its near sell out that they were "impressed with [The Silver Ghosts] audience numbers as not often new bands [to the venue] achieve such a high number" and that they "truly enjoyed the evening". The historic venue intends to program the 7 piece outfit again as part of their Wednesday jazz night later this year. A similar response was given by the management at The Royal Albert Hall to positive feedback from the recent sell out gig in the Elgar Room; the outfit are working on additions to their repertoire and endeavour to perform anew in these hallowed enclaves.
