After a journey that we thought would never end coupled with a flat tyre, we were happy to arrive at our venue for the evening. Jessica & Tom had hired us for their wedding entertainment 12 months before and we knew how special their big day was.
The venue was stunning. High ceilings, full of character and surrounded by beautiful scenery. A picturesque venue that we were excited to play.
After a thorough set up and soundcheck we were ready to play their first dance. This was a slowed down version of Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Inviting the bride and groom onto the dance floor while guests made a semi-circle around them. The groom had asked us through his nerves if we could invite guests to join them in their first dance after some time. As we gradually sped the song up to the original tempo and bringing in the kick drum the dance floor was full!
During the whole first set it seemed as though this enormous room was absolutely filled with wedding guests dancing their socks off!
We finished the first set off with Brown Eyed Girl getting everyone into the singing before heading over to DJ for the duration of our break.
As the second set was opened by Olly Murrs – Dance With Me Tonight the dance floor was filled again followed by a rock and roll medley of Tutti Frutti and Good Golly Miss Molly. We had a special request by the bride and groom to play I Love You Baby by Frankie Valli which was met by a prepared dance routine by the bride and groom.
Playing 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton seemed to bring out some spectacular dance routines too! At one point we invited the best man up ( we heard he considered himself a Freddie Mercury impersonator! ) for Sex on Fire where the crowd gathered at the front to join in with the best man. We finished the night on a medley of Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen and All Night Long by Lionel Richie.
This is what being a wedding band is all about. The crowd were fantastic and most importantly the bride and groom couldn’t thank us enough for providing their wedding entertainment.
We include a complementary Dj service with every package booked ensuring the dance floor is kept full all night long. We encourage our brides and grooms to provide us with a list of their favourite songs so we can ensure they are included in the DJ set. We are a completely self contained band providing a full sound and lighting set up for both stage and dance floor.
