Rainbows Charity Night at Sytner Leicester

We've performed in some unlikely places and unlikely situations before. On our list of random, but great shows, the charity night for Rainbows at Sytner Leicester was definitely a new entry!

When we were approached by Gina from Sytner BMW Leicester about a charity performance for Rainbows, we jumped at the chance to help out. We've performed for Loros on numerous occasions, sung at charity events for individuals, several breast cancer gigs, opened up large scale events like Relay For Life and Oxjam and Adam has even performed with Jasper Carrott for the Variety Club and Alexander O'Neal for Legends of Sport! Rainbows was a charity that had always been on our wishlist and so it was a privilege to join them for their 2012 Ladies night!

Ladies night

The Sytner showroom was emptied of cars and, in their place, stalls of exhibitors (including fancy cupcakes and the National Space Centre!) set up in preparation for a fantastic evening.

Once the managing director had made everyone feel welcome, Adam Thomas and the Souljers performed a 15 minute (in your face!) set to really get the party started. The lovely audience soon warmed up and, despite the strange surroundings (for a show at least), sang along and cheered all the way through!

Fundraising

Following a catwalk show and auction, Adam took to the stage once more for another 15 minute blast! We had so much fun and were so proud to be a part of the evening (raising in excess of £4,000 no less!).

Congratulations to Gina and the team for such a succesful event! Check out the article in Countryside La Vie and look out for another Rainbows performance blog post coming soon :)

Mr and Mrs Chawner, Bradgate Suite at Sketchley Grange

Jodie and Matthew had booked Adam to perform at their wedding very early on in their planning and I had met and chatted to them at several of the

Sketchley Grange wedding fayres

after that too. Their wedding had always seemed so far into the future that, when their Big Day finally arrived, I couldn't believe that it had finally come around!

Lots of couples take at least a year (sometimes two) to plan their wedding and, when we arrived to set up for their

evening entertainment

, we suddenly realised just how much planning this lovely couple had needed to put in!

The Bradgate Suite

at

Sketchley Grange

had been fully decked out in white and hot pink with huge ostrich feather table centres, table runners, balloons, chair covers, fairy lighting... The works! To complete the 'fairytale princess' look, their cake was a sparkly Princess castle!

Their evening guests were treated to casino tables to kick the evening off, a delicious buffet, a chocolate fountain and a fully stocked candy table too! In between munching on all of this and having a flutter on the casino, guests were invited to leave video messages as well as sign the interactive guestbook... Never a dull moment!

'Fun-filled' would be the word that best describes the finishing touches that this lovely couple sprinkled over their big day... They then spoilt their guests with two live sets by

Adam Thomas

:)

A Very Different First Dance...

Their chosen first dance song was

Earth Angel (The Penguins)

: this was the first time that we'd ever had this song requested so it was a really nice change to see this used for a first dance (the

lyrics

are surprisingly apt and the tempo is perfect) :)

Following on from this, their wedding entertainment really kicked off with Adam's live performances: a little bit of

Michael Buble's Everything

to get everyone singing and swaying along!

This was then followed by a full-on

Pop, Soul and Indie

second set for dancing: Soul Man to

Valerie

, Paolo Nutini to Mr Brightside! Act two also had one or two numbers from Adam's

new soul show

thrown in for good measure (Forget You (Cee Lo Green) still proving to be the evening's favourite!)

The atmosphere was electric and the bride and groom had a good boogie too. The dance floor was full all night long with the wedding party jigging away to everything from Take That to The Human League, Hot, Hot, Hot to Dirty Dancing! They even requested a springling of reggae, which is always something we like to accomodate - we love a bit of Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Musical Youth!

(One of my personal favourites, however, have you ever seen dancing like this before!!)

A gorgeous day weather-wise was rounded off with a fantastic evening entertainment-wise. Here's to Jodie and Matthew: we'll miss you at the wedding fayres guys! Can't wait to see the photos though... Congratulations!  :) x x x -- This is just for Jodie! :) ...

Christmas 2010 with Adam Thomas & Leicester Tigers!

As I don't have many events that can be attended by the general public, I thought that it would be nice (if not a little early I agree!) to spread the word of Adam's huge Christmas shows at Leicester Tigers.

Adam Thomas will be accompanied by his stunning Dancers and legendary 8 piece Swing & Soul Band from the end of November until the first week in January in the 1000 capacity Caterpillar Stand at Welford Road, so get planning to become a part of the biggest Christmas party in town this festive season!

 

SIX MONTHS UNTIL CHRISTMAS DAY - BOOK YOUR PARTY NOW!

Join us to celebrate Christmas 2010 at Welford Road, the home of Leicester Tigers.

Whether you're looking for a private Christmas party or to be part of a bigger event, whatever the size of your group we can make it a night to remember with Tigers.

Following the success of our 'Fire & Ice' themed parties in 2009, this year we'll be 'Putting on the Glitz'.

Join the biggest party night in the East Midlands, enjoy a sumptuous three-course dinner and full entertainment package in our 1,000-seater suite.

Or, if you are looking for a more traditional evening, then join one of our Christmas party nights where you can enjoy a three-course dinner with disco and dancing till late.

Putting on the Glitz

Think big-band sound with saxophones, trumpets and trombones, think showgirls, then add music from our DJ to round off the night and you have the makings of a fantastic party.

Our reputation for great food and first-class service goes before us and this night will be no exception. This is your invitation to the most sought-after party in town.

Christmas menu

Warm tartlet of feta cheese, watercress, sun blushed & cherry tomatoes

Turkey escalope wrapped in bacon, filled with a spinach & apricot stuffing
Vegetarian option: Medley of vegetables served in a sweet red pepper topped with a tarragon sauce
Main course accompanied by roasted roots & braised potato

Marbled dark & white chocolate mousse set on chocolate sponge served with a fruit coulis

Freshly brewed coffee & after dinner mints

Christmas Party Nights

Take a delicious three-course dinner, great sounds from our DJ, a splash of Christmas spirit and maybe a few glasses of Christmas cheer, and mix them up into a fantastic evening.
Meet friends in the bar before you are seated at your table for a traditional Christmas dinner, then dance the night away to some great sounds. Great food, great party atmosphere, great value for money.
