The Dove, Newport Pagnell

Another great night at this brilliant friendly pub. A very hot night and everyone had a terrific time. Loads of very nice comments during and after the gig and on our Facebook page.

Thank you to everyone who forsook the barbecue and garden chairs and came to see us. Big thanks again to John and his lovely bar staff for looking after us all night.

Were back again at The Dove in October.

Next public gigs are both on 15th July. Wing Fest in the afternoon, and Hare Fest in the evening. Busy busy busy.

See you all there.


The Ashwell Arms & The Dukes – Leighton Buzzard

What a great weekend!!

Saturday afternoon at The Ashwell Arms in Leighton Buzzard with a lovely crowd of people enjoying the nice weather and a barbecue in the pub garden (at least until the barbecue went up in flames and had to be put out with a fire extinguisher!!). Exciting. Lots of singing and dancing and a great crowd.

Nice to see our friends Chris Christoforou and Mick Hewett, at both gigs and Adrian Shale on Saturday – thanks for coming guys.

Then Sunday night at The Dukes, again in Leighton. A brilliant gig and an inspired Danny Fury decided that an impromptu pub quiz was called for, themed on the songs the band played throughout the night. Hilarious results and a great dance off at the end after a dead heat to decide the winner.

At one point the pub almost emptied as a long Conga line left through the front door out to the street and reappeared a few minutes later from the car park. Probably one of our best nights!

Thanks to everyone who again came to see us – you all make it so easy when you’re all so nice and enthusiastic. Thank you to Danny and Jackie who again worked their socks at both gigs to get everyone dancing and singing along.

We’ve now got a couple of weeks off, then we’re back at The Dove in Newport Pagnell on Saturday June 17th.

Hope to see you all there.


The Dove, Newport Pagnell

We had a brilliant gig last night at The Dove in Newport Pagnell!

First time for us at this venue and we had a fantastic time. A very friendly and receptive crowd with lots of audience participation and a conga line pretending to be a train during The Locomotion. Excellent stuff. Good sound and the band were right on form.

Thank you John (the landlord) for asking us to play at your great pub, and thanks to everyone who came along and made it a great evening. We hope you had a good time and hope John the landlord will ask us to come back again very soon.

Hope to see you at our next gig, which is on Saturday 17th December 2016 at The Stag, Leighton Buzzard – more details here or on Lemonrock


Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Presidents Ball

So this weekend we were playing for a black tie dinner dance at Leighton Buzzard Golf Club, so all on our best behaviour.

A terrific night with the band all dressed up for the occasion and playing well.

A fairly full dance floor from the first song until several encores and a later than anticipated finish and a conga line at one point dancing along the balcony outside.

Next gig is November 18th at The Golden Bell pub in Leighton Buzzard.

Watch this space for new upcoming dates soon.


Flitwick Manor

An excellent gig last night at Flitwick Manor, Flitwick – a beautiful country house hotel, for a 50th birthday party. About 70 people and a lovely evening so the doors from the function room were open into the gardens with people sitting outside and drifting in and out to listen to the band, sing a bit and dance. Really good sound balance and our wonderful two singers excelled. Well done Danny and Jackie.

We are hoping to make an appearance at this year’s Hare fest at The Hare pub in Linslade on Saturday 16th August, time slot to be advised, so watch this space – last year’s appearance was a blast with a huge turnout so bring the family along to enjoy three days of live music.


The Clay Pipe, Leighton Buzzard

What a great night Carnaby Street had on Saturday night at The Clay Pipe in Leighton Buzzard. A packed pub with lots of friends and much singing and dancing the throughout whole evening. We hope that everyone who came along had a good time.

Well done to our new band member Jackie, who has taken over from Karen, with only a very short time to get herself up to speed with 3 hours’ worth of material. A brilliant effort, and welcome to the band Jackie – well done.

We will be back in Leighton at The Crown for an Oxjam charity night on Friday 18 March – hope to see you all there.


New Year's Eve 2015-16

We finished at 12.45 am and the crowd was still partying hard at the end of the New Year’s Eve gig with Carnaby Street in Leighton Buzzard. Packed out dance floor, function room and two bars the whole night and everyone was having a ball.

Very sad though, as it was Karen, our backing singer’s, final gig with the band after about 10 years with us, as she’s off on new adventures abroad. We wish her all our love and good luck for the future.

Next gig will be at The Clay Pipe in Leighton in February.

Thanks to everyone for your support throughout 2015 and hope to see you again in 2016.

Happy New Year.


The Clay Pipe, Leighton Buzzard

A new venue for the band on Saturday.

A very late start as we had to wait for an England v Wales rugby match to finish on the TV as there were lots of very excited blokes standing around shouting a lot and we didn’t want to upset them.

We thought the pub would clear out after the match but how wrong can you be! Most of the rugby crowd stayed on and were joined by quite a few couples who had come to see us, plus our mates Mick and Chris from other local bands.

A bit weird seeing big hulking rugger types singing Do wah diddy diddy but hey, they all had a great time and so did we. A really good night and we eventually finished at 12.30 after two encores with the pub landlord joining us for Dance the Night Away.

Our pal Chris was a very happy man, being dragged onto the dance floor by a very attractive tall willowy blond lady for several dances and he obviously hated every minute of it (NOT!).

Big thanks to Adrian who helped out on drums for the night as Matt had to look after his brother’s stag do.


The Bell in Hardwick

Last night’s gig at The Bell in Hardwick could have been an absolute disaster but turned into one of the best nights the band has had for ages.

The newly refurbished and re-opened pub had booked a Marquee and put on a reopening event selling over 50 tickets for a meal and live band. On Tuesday the new ovens and extractor hoods packed up and they had to refund everyone and arranged for the people to eat elsewhere.

Carnaby Street therefore played the first set to three people and the bar staff.

Suddenly at about 9.45 all 50 of these cancelled bookings turned up in a mini bus and cars and the pub was suddenly packed out.

Loads of people on the dance floor all bopping to the music and the night ended up in a 20 minute encore and a huge conga line dancing through the pub and round the car park. Brilliant!

That’s what we call loyalty. Ian Tring and his wife, the landlords, must be really well thought of in the village for all those disappointed customers to come back after they’d eaten elsewhere en-bloc to support them and their lovely team.

We could all do with a bit more of this kind of local support for village pubs and family run businesses in this country we reckon.

Bit of a break now for a couple of weeks after a fairly hectic few weeks of gigs. Back in the Autumn with some new songs.


Rushmere Country Park

Last night saw the band perched on top of a big Artic lorry trailer in the middle of Rushmere Park in Leighton Buzzard playing for a lovely concert crowd who turned out for a night of 60’s music and a burger.

We were one member down as Karen had gone on holiday, so Martin, Nick, Matt (and even Brian had a mic) all lent a hand doing Karen’s high harmonies (well done guys).

Everyone in the crowd seemed to enjoy themselves and everyone was joining in and dancing on the grass.

It got a little cold towards the end of the evening but that didn’t seem to deter anyone, and most folk stayed until the end.

A good night and we had a great time.

Next gig is this coming Friday (21 August) at The Bell pub in Hardwick near Aylesbury (on the Aylesbury to Winslow / Buckingham road about 3 miles out of Aylesbury).
