Lido Modern Movement 2012 official promo & late add - live music weather permitting!
The Modern Movement at the Lido is just days away ... will the weather cooperate!??! It seems last year at this time it was dry and warm! See the official MM promo below. Also breaking news is that after their well-received performance at Dulwich Leisure Centre's inaugural Members' Evening last week, Herne Hill's Ingham Swing Ensemble will be on hand lunchtime (between noon and 1pm) on Sunday to play Cole Porter classics outside in the patio of The Lido Cafe. They'll back onto the pool so folks on hand for Modern Movement can listen. See photo of their expanded ensemble below last week at DLC. They'll be doing the likes of 'I Love Paris', 'Night and Day', 'I Get a Kick Out of You', 'I've Got You Under My Skin' and many more. Cole Porter got his start writing his classics in the 1920s just as the original Modern Movement got its start in Paris in the 1920s and spread throughout Europe during the 30s. So it's a good fit for what we hope will be a great weekend. But sadly it is all weather permitting - the musicians will make a decision at 11:30 am on Sunday as to whether they play or not. The forecast is not ideal, so keep your fingers crossed.
