Organized for months, with an on line invitation and
password protected door access, it sounded like a big thing. And it was!
Hosted at the Fine Line in Holborn, the party started a bit slowly around
6 and heated up until late night! A great as always performance by Little
Harlem and a fab set by DJ Bitterjug, with not only swing classic but
everything from the Orb to Robbie Williams, to cha cha to rap. Every one
was there, almost! Swing friends, lawyers, relatives, mum and gran, teachers,
Katie from US, Michel from France and so on...
Great night Sian, well done and thank you! And here
is a message from the lady herself:
"And can I just say this.....
