Recently we were lucky enough to be a part of the 10th Birthday celebrations for Cupitt's Winery. We've gotten to know the Cupitt family and their staff well, having performed at the venue for weddings, and at their weekly Sunday Sessions. Tom Cupitt is also the trumpet player in The T-Section. The family has a passion and a reputation for creating incredible wine, beer, food and ultimately atmosphere.

The days leading up to the gig had us eyeing the weather apps, the winter winds threatening to be a real deal breaker. But with true optimism, Tom set about preparing a surprise for both the crowd and ourselves, building a new stage in front of the vines. This has quickly become known as the 'Cupitt's Amphitheatre'. Backed by the famous view, we were the first band to grace this new addition to the property.
The winds weren't as furious as feared, but they did blow...and the crowds turned out in overwhelming numbers, enjoying the sunshine in all it's glory. They ate, they drank, they danced. The T-Section got rave reviews, and we had a blast.
Thanks to all those that came along to support us, and a massive congratulations to the Cupitt's crew. We hope to see you all again soon.
