We've had the opportunity of playing the amazing Childerley Hall in Cambridgeshire a few times over the last couple of years for weddings and parties. This time, the family who own the estate chose the JONNY HEPBIR GYPSY JAZZ QUINTET with violin, clarinet and saxophone to help with their personal celebration and anniversary of this incredible venue.
It was a fantastic afternoon with a gathering of friends and family, delicious food, chilled beverages and hot swing jazz to keep the party going well into the hot Summer night.
It was also the 370th #anniversary when King Charles the first stayed in the hall for a couple of nights. Apparently he met Oliver Cromwell on the very lawn we played for a chin-wag.
Things maybe didn't go as planned as soon after, the English Civil War kicked off.
Records show that Charles had a nice time at the hall and was a good guest. His dog however was not so well behaved. Chewing furniture and leaving 'gifts' around the place.
What better way to honour this memorable occasion than by listening to pumping Gypsy swing and drinking cocktails! It's what Chuck and Olly would have wanted.
Here's a few pictures of this perfect afternoon on the beautiful Childerley estate.
It's possible to have the Quintet with the instrument choice to suit your event requirements.
Here's a video of the JONNY HEPBIR GYPSY JAZZ QUINTET with saxophone and female vocals playing 'I'll See You In My Dreams'.
