Grab your moustache wax and saddle up for the Tweed Run

Cramming into the Star of Kings after a bracing Tweed Run An 'atmosphere' set for the splendidly turned out chaps and chapesses of the Tweed Run. After a rather bracing day touring London on vintage bicycles, they piled into the Star of Kings pub, where their vintage tweeds gently steamed dry to the sounds of vintage jazz.

Rather like the set at the National Portrait Gallery, I stuck mainly to older recordings and was pleased to give lots of nice up-tempo tunes an airing. I started with faster, high-energy stuff and then calmed it down later on.

These atmosphere sets were fun, but I'm looking forward to getting back to the dance floor. Next stop: Wild Times, 23rd April.
