Thanks for the Memory 2015

50 years of Music 1920's - 1970's with Dave Egerton Big Band

  The Concert was held on Sunday May 10th 2pm Hosted by Cranage Hall Hotel & Conference Centre

 

We had a great afternoon of Big Band music and songs from the 1920's to 1970's with the Dave Egerton Big Band bringing back the memories and laughter of the past.


Dame Vera Lynn also supported us again and wished us luck.


This year writer/singer/radio host, Jan Eberle, also supported us. Jan is the youngest daughter of singer & music pioneer Ray Eberle. Ray, of course, is remembered as the original male vocalist for the fa
med Glenn Miller Civilian Orchestra from 1938-1942. 

Jan strongly believes that: 'music is the universal language that transcends all. While time and disease may rob us of so much, including our memory, it is music that knows no bounds.'

The audience sat back while we took them down memory lane to the Swing era, from Glenn Miller to the Beatles; Fred Astaire to Vera Lynn to Van Morrison; Frank Sinatra to The Temptations … and much much more.

Through this great afternoon of entertainment we raised money for Nantwich Dementia Friends Group and the Alzheimer’s Society.

The concert was sponsored by Cranage Hall Hotel and Conference Centre and Oakmere Wealth Management
