The Feelgood Summer Picnic Concert ROCKED!!!!
The first Feelgood Summer Picnic Concert at the Wellbedacht Estate in Wellington, on Saturday night ROCKED!!!
There is nowhere that I would rather have been on Saturday afternoon/evening than at at the Wellbedacht Estate in Wellington, home of Schalk Burger & Sons. The setting was stunning…. lush lawns, a dam, loads of friendly people, sunny skies, wine tasting, a delicious picnic platter and live music!! What more can a girl ask for?
We got there earlyish and just lazed around for a few hours (which LFCT NEVER does… always on the move), enjoying the sun (alternatively trying to duck it), and listening to the “No Name Band” 😉 doing their very professional sound-check… people watching and walking along the dam wall, watching a family of ducks going for their afternoon constitutional…. what BLISS!!
Then the band started playing and the peeps got into the groove – even though there was rolling load shedding, the band never missed a beat thanks to their foresight to bring their own generator with…. NOTHING was gonna stop us having a JOL!!
As the sun dipped behind the horison (or in our case behind the trees)… La Luna rose in all her glory and the party got going in earnest. Tommy, Tania and Mandie were presented with their “Supercapes of Gold” and Mandie had a live band and a few hundred people sing Happy Birthday to her….
We bopped and sang our hearts out to all the best numbers from Neil Diamond, Bob Marley, Elton John, Queen, ABBA, Tom Jones, Eurythmics, the Beatles…..and many more! WOOHOOO!!! The crowd was dancing in front of the stage and in the aisles, and EVERYONE was singing.
When it was time to go nobody wanted to leave and we BEGGED the band for an encore.. which they did YAY! 😀
All I can say is 🎵 I had the Time of my Life….🎶
For those who did not make it ~ you missed out!!!
BUT do not despair; this will be a regular occurrence, and the next Feel Good Event for Little Fighters Cancer Trust, will be in the first quarter of 2015.
MASSIVE thanks to Nicolette and Justin, the cast and crew, Schalk Burger & Sons and every person who bought a ticket to support LFCT….
