We played last year at the Bucks County Farmers Ball. They were a great crowd to play to – and we must have been doing something right, as they asked us to play again for the 2017 event. This year, we had the full 7 piece band – including two fiddle players, female vocals, and our new keyboard player, Tim Pearne.
The venue was the Doubletree Hilton at the MK Dom’s Stadium in Milton Keynes. We arrived early, and made sure we were setup in time. By 7pm, the guests were arriving, and we were chilling in the green room (taking band photos, which is the usual thing to do).
By 10pm, the guests were fed, and the charity auction had finished… and its was time for the band. We hit the stage and the guests hit the dance floor. They partied on into the night, and we threw in tracks from all the eras – relatively new songs like I Got That Feeling and Shake It Off went down equally as well as the Beatles songs. Basically, these guys wanted to party, and it was great to be able to provide the sound track!
Last song, at the request of the organisers, was God Save The Queen… which we played in the style of… Queen!
Absolutely great night – thank you so much for looking after us, hopefully we’ll see you guys again soon!
