Well what a summer it's been! We have had the most incredible time being the wedding band for some awesome couples up and down the country. We've performed at some fantastic venues, met some brilliant people and seem some pretty funky dance moves!
So we thought we'd share with you a few of our summer highlights... and it's not even over yet!
Although we're based in Winchester, we frequently travel across the UK and love discovering new places - it's always a great excuse to check out different parts of the country! So one summer highlight definitely has to be discovering the beautiful Devon seaside town of Salcombe. We performed at the gorgeous Cliff House and are pretty confident that it's a contender for the 'most scenic gig location' award of 2016!
We were pretty excited when we heard that Haselbury Mill is often described as "probably the most beautiful setting in the South West of England" and we have to agree it was rather lovely. We had a wonderful time performing at a wedding here and the guests were absolutely brilliant - there were some amazing shapes being pulled on this dancefloor!
This picture in no way does Highcliffe Castle any justice (you need a helicopter for that!) but we had such a great time performing here, that we absolutely had to include it in our Summer highlights. You can't help but be wowed as you pull up the amazing drive - we felt like we were about to appear in a period drama! And our sets went down a treat - that checker dance floor got some serious use!
Another absolute favourite barn venue is the stunning Norman Court Barn, right on the banks of the river Anton in Andover. We loved performing here and managed to snap this fab panaromic shot before any of the guests came in for the wedding breakfast.
So there you have it, chaps! So many highlights to pick from this summer and these are just a few of them! Thank you to everyone who has booked us this year - we hope you've enjoyed having us as much as we have enjoyed playing for you! Although summer is fast dissapearing, we still have some availability, so please do give us a ring and book us if you would like us to perform for your wedding or event, this year or next!
Until next time...
