Live Music for Hannah & Stuart's Wedding, Sevenoaks Kent

An idyllic setting on 20th June 2015, so close to the longest day of the year... And the first time we've ever played in a giant Teepee! 

The wedding was set in a marquee in a family member's beautiful garden, full of flowers in bloom (photos to follow!).

We played their first dance live, Ed Sheeran 'Thinking Out Loud' - a great song, and popular choice in recent months; followed by 2 sets of live music with DJ/disco (by me) in between, and a full dance floor all night. Very happy band and a very happy Bride and Groom and guests.

Tonight's wedding reception is best described by the pictures I took (below), which really set the scene and atmosphere of the night - despite some initial torrential rain and exciting thunder storms, once subsided, the night was peaceful and warm.

We were always very well looked after by the amazing caterers too, so many thanks for that! It was a treat to not only get a large dinner, but also a selection of two deserts... wowsers! I couldn't fit into my dress afterwards but who cares. ;-)

Thanks very much Hannah and Stuart for a great gig - I'm so glad you both had a wonderful wedding day and night too!

All best wishes

Harewood Downs Golf Club, Chalfont St. Giles - Fancy Dress Party Band! Hertfordshire

A fun, fantastic, Fancy Dress gig!  We were all made to feel so welcome at Neil Buckley's Fancy Dress Party @ Harewood Downs Golf Club, Chalfont St. Giles, Buckinghamshire for a joint celebration of Neil's 70th, his wife's 65th and his daughter's 40th Birthdays  - where we played some marvellous live music if I may say so myself. ;)

The costumes were amazing, Neil as Elvis, his lovely wife Lorraine as Scarlett O'Hara and many more very impressive getups!!

Neil and his friends had put a surprise live band together to play a few numbers in the break too. I do believe they called themselves 'New Balls Please'.... (tennis joke). 

Thanks to Neil for booking CandyStripes as his live band for the party, we got a further booking for Chalfont St. Giles Tennis Club Ball! (More Fancy Dress to come)!

The moral of the blog is, fancy dress parties are great fun.
