S.O.S. Bush Hall London

Swing Out Sister was quite a show !!!!
Such a fun night with unexpected surprises!
You go Gina .... Andy's faces crack me up !
(Love this blur the more I look the more Faces I see)
Swing Out Sister is currently promoting there new album "Beautiful Mess", (which is great btw) along with doing the classics you may remember , Break Out, and Same Girl

Patrice is a huge fan and so when we arrive we scoped out a good spot to photograph and enjoy the show. We found this great space just right of stage as we moved  over to the spot this lady looked like she was going to the same place, we looked at each other and laughed  and said " Looks like we both have the same idea ?!huh:-)" 
At one point Corrine (lead singer) shouted out to the crowd and we being Fabulous Americans .... Shouted Back ( it's not funny until you've been in a room with a bunch of reserved Englishmen) She immediately acknowledged us :-) Anyway everyone in the room loosed up and soon their was dancing and singing along. 
After the show the lady and her friend whom we had shared space with asked if we had really come from USA to see the show, we replied, "yes" to which she said to her friend, "I think Corrine would like to meet them "
As it turns out she was a dear long time friend of Corrine and her family.We were escorted over by our new Lovely English Lady friends (Liz and Anna) and introduced. 
Go Figure, Corrine recognized Patrice from the Swing Out Sister Fan page on Face book , So we were welcomed into the private upstairs bar at the club and closed the place down with the band! 
We had an amazing night , thanks to our new friends Liz and Anna and a wonderful time meeting Corrine Drewery , Andy Connell, Gina Foster,  Jody Linscott and all the other privileged  fans and friends.

Anna and Liz .... and some crazy stalker fan Bill or Phil in the back there :-)

What a beautiful group of photographs. I had the pleasure of spending nearly three hours with Corinne,Andy and the band. What wonderful people.I got to converse one on one with both Andy and Corinne and watch their soundcheck.I was so impressed by their kindness and down to earth manner. I felt like I was leaving friends at the end of the night. I am going to share a link with the two websites dedicated to Swing Out Sister. Beautiful work.Thank you.
