"In the Mix" is a relaxed and social singing group with singer and voice coach Sheila Daniels and professional pianists Jon Spanyol and Mike Kenton. With words projected onto a screen, sit back and sing along to the most popular songs from the 1920s to the 1970s, covering Hollywood films, West End musicals, Rock and Roll, Pop, Rat Pack, Big bands, Jazz, Swing, Blues and more. It's good for the mind and body to sing so why not give it a try?
No need to book or commit .... or sing well or learn anything!
“I have spent many years singing with a band at weddings and events and my repertoire covers many well known songs from the 1930s, 40s and 50s, so I thought it would be fun to sing these songs with others who loved them as much as I did – in a relaxed setting without pressure, expectation or commitment. I decided to set up the group back in 2012 because I felt there must be people who would like to sing together socially without having to join a choir or amateur dramatics group, but instead something more like a traditional sing along .
We sing everything and anything from the 1920s through to the 1970s and occasionally before and after! What we have in common is a general love of great music from many genres – and an open mind to have a go even if I throw in Chuck Berry when they’d rather sing Matt Monro – or vice versa. Above all, singing should be fun and it should make you feel good just to set your voice free, it doesn’t matter what you sound like – and to be honest the more you mentally and physically relax about it the better it will be, that's a fact :)
There is much in the media about the health benefits of singing, either for yourself or in a group, including lowering blood pressure, relieving stress and anxiety, boosting the immune system, improving lung function and it is the best kind of anti-depressant.
The one thing we share at “In the Mix”, however, is that we all leave feeling better for singing and sharing our love of music. Come and join in with us – the more the merrier!" ~ Sheila Daniels
