This was a truly unique venue to be playing. We arrived with the setting sun playing across the Thames, with the London O2 on the opposite bank. The building itself was a large room, which in the past could have been a warehouse at the docks… though it had been converted to be a prime London venue, for weddings and corporate occasions.
With our regular caller Jason not present due to previous commitments, we had the very able Alan Simpson handling the calling for the Ceilidh section of the wedding. First dance was DJ’d Bruno Mars song – and later we slipped in Shut Up And Dance – which we would be playing as the first dance the next night – for the first time. The crowd danced away, and it went smoothly. At one point, the groom jumped up to the stage to sing (during a DJ section) to Teenage Dirtbag – which was great to witness!
It was a lovely wedding to play – thanks for looking after us – best of luck in the future!
