Tom sang during dinner, and going late. Not surprisingly, everyone was up for a party, and it wasn’t long before the guests were up on the dance floor, and it stayed that way all night! Very kindly, at the end of the night, one of the guests took the microphone and thanked Tom for his hard work.
It was a great way to let in the New Year. Guest comments included:-
Leigh “Had a fantastic night, in fact, the best new year party I have ever been to! Thank you so much”
Mary - “Thank you so much for a wonderful night...We enjoyed it so much”.
Ellen - “We had an amazing time!!! The best New Year’s Eve EVER!!”
Check out more of the photos from the night here. What more can we say, but wish everyone a happy and healthy new year?
There was a late start, with some large parties in, but, as ever, Tom had everyone dancing by the end of the night. He is very much looking forward to 2014, so watch this space for details of further bookings!
In the meantime, he will be back there on Saturday 18th January 2014. Meanwhile he, and we, wish you all the very best for the new year.
Tom had the bar area packed with dancers, and also had a couple of conga’s trailing right round the restaurant. If you were there last night, thanks for helping make it a good night. If not, why not? You can catch him there next Saturday 28th December - but be sure to book!
In true Gareth Malone style, Anna invited listeners to turn up, only about nine weeks ago, to form a choir that could sing in concert to raise money for North East Charity “Cash for Kids”. Unsure of what response she would get, Anna arrived to the first rehearsal, to find 70+ people, who went on to commit to rehearsing each week and deliver the fantastic performances we enjoyed last night. Directed by Mark Deeks of Music Newcastle, the choir sang impressively and were joined in the first performance by the pupils of Hadrian Primary School, South Shields.
Tom sang a solo of “Love Changes Everything” - a video of which will appear on this site very soon. He also sang “All I Ask Of You” with Anna, and again, a video will appear here very soon. Other soloists included tenor, Paul Smith, Laura Graham, and Mark did a lovely Christmassy duet with his girlfriend Angela Lawery. It all added up to a wonderful evening’s entertainment. Tom sold his CD on the night, and donated £80 from the sale proceeds to Cash for Kids. Who knows, but let’s hope they do it all again next year?
Afterwards, people took to face book to say what a good night they had had....
“Great night Tom, Well done!” - Judith Piper
“Brilliant Night. Thoroughly enjoyed your singing. Thanks” - Julie McGaughey
“Brilliant Night” - Elaine Thornton
Take a look at the compilation of the last couple of Christmas nights at Marabini’s on the home page. Now, to paraphrase Chris Tarrant (Who wants to be a millionaire) - we don’t want to make that the best night. We can do better still, so come on and join Tom this Saturday at Marabini’s in Morpeth. Booking is essential! See you there!
