Cocos Garden Centre were planning their grand re-opening in Port Andratx, Mallorca. They wanted a party band that could get people’s attention and create an exciting and relaxed atmosphere! The owners had seen Con Gas at the Bar Cubano Christmas Eve party and so asked us to headline their big spring garden party!
It was great to be playing outside after the winter and the sun shone down on us all. There was free food and drink for everybody there, a bouncy castle for the kids and of course, all the things you would expect to find in a big garden centre. It was an all day affair and we were only supposed to be playing 2 sets but the owners liked us so much that they offered us more money for more time on the spot! So we carried on playing into the late afternoon to a growing crowd.
So there was me – Holly on piano and vocals, my dad David Lowe switching between bass and acoustic guitar. Simon Fawcett on drums and Miguel Ramon on sax. We played a mixture of modern songs like Ed Shearen’s Shape Of You, Pharell’s Happy, Lorde’s Royals, Taylor Swift’s Blank Space and classics such as My Girl, Under The Boardwalk, Maggie May, Saw Her Standing There and lots of old rock and roll and some swing and jazz also. A few ballads including one that is perfect we thought for a garden centre – The Rose
