Swindon Shuffle – Swindon Samba

Okay. So what sort of giant sized rock have I been hiding under that I’ve managed not to notice the Swindon Shuffle for the entire seven years of its existence?  I only got to know about it this year because Cidalia at U Piri Piri on Havelock Street sent me an invite on the ubiquitous Facebook.

So, to cut a long story short, Friday just gone saw me and a few friends on Havelock Street ready for the night’s shuffling. The evening kicked off with Swindon Samba  doing their thing – totally awesome. I absolutely loved them. They are just, to paraphrase ‘MIranda,  – such fun! Just vibrant and energetic and how the ‘conductor’ manages to do that and play a drum I’ve no idea. Impressed doesn’t cover it.

There were also other artistes playing inside the Piri Piri including a gypsy king!  Then later Swindon Samba appeared again and this time it was even more amazing.    Guys – this was just so fabulous. I absolutely loved it.  Ace, fab and brill!

There’s a few of my personal pictures on Born Again Swindonian’s Facebook page, but there’s more and better on the Swindon Shuffle Facebook page. And possibly too on the Swindon Samba page.

So thank you Swindon Shuffle and Swindon Samba for quite the best fun I’ve had in a long time!
