Happy Birthday Nicky . We played Nicky and Anthony’s wedding 5 years ago – and now we were returning at a different venue, to celebrate then then-bride’s 40th birthday. This was our first visit to this venue, and we were to be the first band they had ever had performing in the space. There was nothing to worry about though, as the guests seemed up for a party, and with the erstwhile Chris Haigh on fiddling duties, we pushed forward. We moved through the musical genres from slow dancing, to sixties rock’n’roll, then moved on into the more recent tracks by The Killers, Daft Punk etc The crowd built throughout the evening, and as the drinks were flowing, so were the quality dance moves in front of the band. A top Celtic solo dancing accompanied Fleur De Mandragor… and by the end there was much merriment to 500 Miles, followed by the anthemic Champagne Supernova – and important song for anyone who’s generation would be hitting the 40th Birthday parties at this moment!
A fun crowd, warm and welcoming – thanks for looking after us, best of luck in the future! [flickr-gallery mode=”photoset” photoset=”721576343495827300″]
