This was the first visit to Layer Marney Tower, and it turned out to be a very fine venue indeed! We played at the end of a long hall, and setup in the afternoon.
First dance was Country Road, played by the band. However, the remit was to create a ‘Live Lounge’ vibe on this country classic, so we had worked on the arrangement to come up with something new, and appropriate (in fact, we will be recording this version, as it worked so well). After this, the crowds danced away, and after a short break, we pushed on and played a full on second set, breaking for the New Year’s countdown. We then played on until 12.30, and left the crowds wanting more (the the arrival of various taxis meant the party had to end).
It was a wonderful wedding to be playing on New Years Eve – thank you so much for looking after us – best of luck in the future!
