My Previous life, intrigued? You should be!

Well you all know me as either just me on this blog, or as Mrs Notorious Kitsch or some of you know me personally!

Here we have another bit of me, I really thought twice about sharing but I am kinda proud and it was a really fabulous time in my life.

I used to be a singer in an R'n'B band, for years and years, we toured around the UK and Europe and basically had a ball! We were called Red Peters and the Solid Senders and here we are on video!

The sounds quality is pretty poor but you get the idea. We had such a ball, such a laugh, looking back it was fabulous and I wouldn't have swapped my time doing it for the world! I got to work with some talented, fun and hilarious people. There were some wild times and there were some times when we were just in a minibus for whole days on end! Life on the road, fun but hard work

I love this first one, partly cos I remember the after show party, whoops! But partly cos it shows us just being on tour, great memories!


I was encouraged to share these by both Helen who runs Pin-Up Parade and Natasha who runs Natasha Bailie Vintage Clothing, thanks ladies for reminding me about my 'previous life'!



If I remember rightly the place caught fire the night this was taken, we ended up doing part of the show outside in the snow as in our youthful enthusiasm we thought it was rather romantic and the show must go on! We were allowed back in to finish the show, it was quite an eventful night!

I hope you enjoy!

Brilliant, I am so envious, as I am tone deaf and couldn't sing my way out of a paper sack. :)

Yes Natasha I am in touch with most of them, well the trumpet player is Paul my husband so I'm definately in touch with him! And the rest apart from the bass player who's french and back in Nice, yep I see them occasionally! Good times
