A Belated Happy New Year!
Thursday 23rd February 2017
A very belated happy new year to you all!
Here at Vintage Roots we absolutely love being the vintage wedding band for your big day or event. In between performing at weddings, being the party band or corporate entertainment, we like to keep ourselves amused in a variety of ways. So we thought we'd fill you in on what the band got up to in 2016 (besides filling dancefloors!)
This month, Nina has been over in Los Angeles, writing and recording with Grammy nominated songwriter Steve Duberry, he's been a part of 10 million record sales so he know's a thing or two about how to craft a song!
Rob is a highly sought after Guitar tutor and teaches at ACM in Guildford, among other colleges and schools. He is also 1/5th of Goldbirds, a melodic rock band, who recently recorded a live session for the BBC. Check out their awesome sound on their Soundcloud page.
John is widely regarded as one of the very best bluegrass banjo players in the UK. Already this year he has been touring and running banjo workshops throughout the country. His playing is even more astounding when you realise Banjo is his second instrument and he's actually a classical guitarist!
Ben has been busy teaching music and composing soundtracks for short films. He also somehow got selected to be an extra in a Brad Pitt film and will definitely show you the photo evidence if you ask him...
Callum's day job is running outdoor survival classes, he loves nothing more than harnessing his inner Bear Grylls and living off the land. He's also pretty tasty on the drums and is a well respected tutor.
So there you go - we do keep ourselves rather busy!
We've always got time for performances, though! So if you would like to book Vintage Roots for your wedding or event, please get in touch with us - we'd love to hear from you!
Until next time...
