Carl and Laura, Harleyford Golf Club, Marlow, July 2017

This was our first visit to Harleyford Gold Club, though a most pleasant one it was!  First dance was ‘Your My Best Friend’, by Queen, played by the band.  We had Holly singing the girl songs for the evening, so harmonies were in full flow, as was the quality ale form the Harleyford bar.

A break for bacon baps, served by the friendly catering staff, the we pushed on into the night – finishing with a couple of specially requested DJ tunes.  Band happy, venue happy, and most importantly, bride and groom very happy – which made for a great night!

Thanks for looking after us, best of luck in the future!

David and Tamara, Wedding Reception, Gate Street Barn, July 2017

We have the perfect setup for Gate Street Barn, and this wedding was no exception.  Rob wowed the guests with his skilled guitar playing during the ceremony, then later he was back with the band playing the first dance, Too Good To Be True.  The crowds danced, came in and avoided the rain, danced some more, and sang quite a lot!  David and Tamara were a lovely couple, with a great bunch of friends who made the night what it was!

Thanks for looking after us – best of luck in the future!

Laura and Dave’s Big 40th Birthday Bash, Marquee, West Horsley, July 2017

This was a lovely looking marquee, in a the family garden, and with it being a joint 40th birthday, was set to be a great event.  Laura and Dave, and family, were super welcoming, as we setup, and as we finished our sound check, the evening guests arrived.

We played all the classics – we’re doing quite a few 40th birthdays, so the music moves along similar lines.  Jason fiddled on his fiddle, Holly sang and swayed, and the rest of us simply did  what we do… and the crowd danced the night away.  Before we knew it, it was midnight, and the music had to stop.

They were a great crowd – and a lovely family to play to (very cool little dogs in our ‘green room’).  thanks for looking after us, and happy birthday Laura and Dave!

Lexie and Jamie, Wedding Reception, Loseley Park, July 2017

Great to visit Loseley Park again – such a beautiful venue, with lovely grounds.  Jamie and Lexie were the young bride and groom whom we had the honour to play to, with the first dance as Your Song (played by the band).  We pushed on, throwing in a Gay Gordons for the Scottish contingent at the halfway point.  Cocktails were flowing – we could see them being brought out as we played – and the guests were up and dancing, despite it being one of the hottest evenings this year.

Great crowd – best of luck to Lexie and Jamie in the future – thanks for looking after us!

Sarah and Mark, Wedding Reception, Marquee, Send, Wiltshire, June 2017

Back to a marquee wedding, which is great to play, as the sound is second to none.  Sarah and Mark had seen us at a previous wedding (Katie and Dan), so they knew what to expect.  First dance was played by the band, with Chris Hughes doing his awesome Van Morrison impression – Somone Like You.  We had the very wonderful Tim Pearne on keyboards, which sounded great.  The night pushed on, the guests danced away, breaking to enjoy the fireworks.  Brilliant crowd – lovely to have Sarah come up and join us to sing Son Of A Preacher.

Thank you so much for looking after us – and thanks for the gifts of quality wine at the end – to was much appreciated.  Best of luck to Sarah and Mark in the future – i’m sure we’ll be seeing them soon at another wedding 🙂

Fiona and Tim, Lurgashall Village Hall, West Sussex, June 2017

Tim and Fiona were married last year, so this was the big party to follow.  Out in the quiet village of Lurgashall, we unloaded our gear into the village hall and setup on the stage, behind the curtain.  The food was mini tortillas – Tim’s business is catering, providing this blend of street food for corporate events… so it was a wonderful treat.

First dance was DJ – ‘La Cienega Just Smiled’ by Ryan Adams … going into the band – ‘Let’s Have a Party’ by Wanda Jackson.  And the guests partied on.

It was an absolute pleasure to play to this crowd – congratulations to Tim and Fiona – many thanks for looking after us!
