  • Zigged The Zag!

    The Hills Big Band performed for "Walk The Zig Zag" on Sunday 18 October.

    The weather was ideal for a stroll down the historic Zig Zag on Gooseberry Hill; mostly cool with a few breezes, a few sunny spots, and the only rainclouds in sight staying on the distant horizon to the east.

    Hundreds of walkers made the most of the lovely outlook, the live entertainment, delicious food and great coffee!

    The Hills Big Band ripped through some favourites, including "Front Burner" and "Peter Gunn".

    Solos all around!

    Our vocalists Mel and Lennie brought a selection of wonderful songs to stage.

    The beautiful ballad "Over The Rainbow" was a big hit with our audience. And "Just Friends" got everyone tapping their feet to the Latin rhythms.
