Raising the roof!

Well, what a brilliant Prohibition Party it was.

A hundred or more dappers and flappers making full use of both dance floors and the joint was jumping so much we kept playing well past the advertised 12.30 cut off point. Lovely mix of our usual 30s/40s swing with plenty of 1920s Charleston thrown in.

Check out all the photos from the night on Facebook and on MySpace (thanks to Lorna, Claire and Karl).

Ringo from Rhubarb Radio’s 10 o’Clock Rock show was there and went round collecting all your quotes for his Sunday morning show. Only he got so drunk on our special Hot Ginger cocktails, he couldn’t read his own writing! Here are the few he could decipher:

Ringo – Great nite had by all. Absolutely bostin’!

Sally and John – When is the next one? Can’t wait!

Karl – Thanks for another great night, already looking forward to the next one.

Claire – Thanks for another great night!

Jon – My third visit to Hot Ginger and it was absolutely amazing. The West Midlands is really lacking in this kind of venue so you guys have done a great job!

We’ll see you all again on 10th April for our Easter Hop.

We’re going dappers and flappers!

This weekend sees our fourth big night Upstairs at the Cross in Moseley, and this time it’s a Prohibition Party.

Er…. what’s a Prohibition Party? you ask.

Okay, it’s a Gangsters and Molls night, but we’re betting it’s the only one you’ll ever go to with authentic music from the Roaring Twenties.

So guys, get that pin-striped double-breasted suit from the back of the wardrobe, and girls, think feather boa! We’re going dappers and flappers.

And we’re opening up a second front!

The dance floor got so crowded last time that we’re opening a second dance floor space on the mezzanine level. It’s the perfect place for beginners to practice their moves. So now there’s two dance floors for the price of one.

See you Saturday!
