The Casino Allstars had a busy festive weekend starting with a Friday night at The Oddfellows Arms, Swinton, the night went very well with a bumper crowd who turned out to support the band. John the landlord thanked the band and will be fixing more dates for us to return in 2014.
Saturday in Moston, Manchester, it was down to The Casino Allstars and Motown man Frank Byrne to keep a packed out room entertained, and that we did with style. Never before had a real Northern Soul band played in front of this crowd but they loved it, as it was uplifting, new and fresh. Frank ever the show man built the band up so much we could hardly fail to be honest, so we just played as we always do, from the heart which is what this music is all about. Looks like we will be back in April to do it all again, so watch this space.
We would like to thank the staff and everyone involved with the two venues plus the regulars for making the band feel at home. We hope we made their last weekend before Christmas most enjoyable.
