We've road tested 12 wonderful songs to make you feel happy on your journey. Help us to complete the project - put petrol in our tank!

We did it!

On 25th May 2017 we successfully raised £2,530 with 93 supporters in 56 days

We are making a new album and it's going to be the bees knees.     

As an example, listen to the first mix of 'Old hot club' here.

If you aren't familiar with the band we are a happy-go-lucky and feel good retro-pop-swing combo with endorsements from the likes of Jools Holland, Jamie Cullum and Hank Marvin and our last album was aired by Jools Holland on BBC Radio 2.  

I've got producer George Shilling on board.  He sure knows how to make hit records.  Like with The Soup Dragons 'I'm free'  or with Yazz 'The only way is up!'  Together we want to try and do something a bit different with my funny little songs to take them into the realms of pop hit.   (You never know.)  Listen to some of George's work here.

We are not on a major label and everything we do is self-funded and self-managed.   The best way to see videos and read more about us is at

We are planning to record the following 12 tracks;

Suzanna (Spade)
Old Hot Club (Spade / Guy)
Chain Of Steel (Spade)
He's Sound (Spade)
Tricky Woo (Spade)
Real Hot Mamma (Spade)
Drive Jonny Drive (Spade / Mattock)
Love Train (Spade)
Faith (George Michael)
It Must Be Love (Labi Siffri)
Just Can't Get Enough (Depeche Mode)
Mr Brown And Me (Spade)

By buying the album up front or by making a larger pledge, you will be helping us to fund the costs via our in-house record label.   Please support us by taking a look at the pledge options on the right to see what rewards you will get for your pledge.  If you are on a mobile phone, go to the top and click on the orange 'Support us' button. 

The lowest pledge is £10 which means that essentially all we are asking you to do is pre-order the album at the same price it will cost at our concerts.  

We will also send a you a free mp3 of our current mix of 'Old hot club' as an instant reward for your support.

(Album rewards!  You can receive these when you make a pledge)

I am holding a crowdfunder launch party on Saturday May 6th at Northampton's Vintage Retreat which could be a good opportunity to come and see the band and feel the buzz of the crowdfunder.  There will be Hair styling, vintage clothes, accessories, DJs, vintage goods, services of all kinds, bar and cafe, all topped off with a concert from the Sara Spade Trio and a big dance floor.   

My fans make my world go around by supporting my work in a world where even the most talented, passionate musicians and songwriters can find it hard to make a living.    Make a pledge now or, if you are interested in more financial details of how the money will be spent, please contact us via this contact page or call 07793542313.
