Last month we played a GREAT wedding at Ripley Castle in Harrogate near York for Fran and Adam. They are a lovely couple and it was a privilege to be your wedding band. The couple had Meghan Trainor- ‘Like I’m gonna lose you’ for their first dance which was great fun.
Ripley Castle is remarkable site of historical importance in Yorkshire and it’s always a great event when we play here.
So thanks again to Fran and Adam for having us and also to Wedding Photographer Tim Hardy for sending us the photos you see here. He is a lovely chap and well respected in his field.
Last weekend we played at a lovely wedding in the Lake District for Amy and Chris at the Merewood House Hotel. This is a fantastic venue with a great view and a lovely setting. We played and acoustic set in the afternoon followed by our 7 piece showband in the evening.
Amy and Chris had Finally Found by the Honeyz for their first dance which was a great choice. What a lovely couple couple and a great venue! All the best for the future!
We got to play at a lovely new venue this weekend – the Aldwark Arms near York who opened their doors to married couples last year. It’s a lovely rural venue and the marquee looked absolutely amazing.
We had the privilege of being Naomi and Tom’s wedding band and it was a cracking night with lots of lovely people. They had You and Me by the Wannadies as their first dance which got the dance floor going and which never stopped until right at the end!
The Aldwark Arms has a lovely outside area with chimineas and the food was great too. Well worth getting in touch with Pete and the team if you want a rustic, easy going venue for your wedding – https://aldwarkarms.co.uk/
So thanks again to Naomi and Tom – it was lovely spending the evening with you, your family and friends and we wish you all the best for the future
Wateraid are part of an active global network and work hard getting water, toilets and hygiene to the millions of people still living without these basic human rights.
While one billion people have escaped extreme poverty in the last 20 years, at least 10% of the world’s population still live without safe water to drink and one in three people live without a decent toilet. As a result, 500,000 children die every year. This wholly unacceptable situation causes untold suffering, holding back human and sustainable development. It particularly affects the lives of women, who carry the burden of collecting water and caring for sick children, and the lives of girls who often fail to finish their education because of a lack of toilets in schools.
We had an absolutely fantastic time and we would like to thank the folks at Yorkshire Water for having us on board at this great event. Lots of money was raised for a great charity with a fantastic cause.
We had a great time playing at a recent event for AEC at the Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel in Manchester. It was their 20 year event and special thanks to Tracey for asking us to play and being such a good host! The Halle suite is an amazing space – the sound was brilliant and the lighting just as good. We have been regulars at the Radisson Blu Manchester over the last couple of years are we always love playing here
The Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester is a 5 star hotel in the centre of the city which hosts lots of events all year round. The food was amazing as usual and the staff super friendly.
Thanks again to Tracey and AEC for having us at your event at the Radisson Blu!
This weekend we played a tipi event at a new venue in Pontefract, Yorkshire called Ackworth Grange. This grade II listed building has a private walled garden area and is in close proximity to neighbouring towns and areas of Wentbridge, Pontefract, Doncaster, Barnsley and Wakefield. It has hosted many private parties over the years and is now opening its doors as a totally new venue.
We were lucky to be involved with Juste Nous catering who provide great quality outside catering for all sorts of different events. Thanks to Clare for a fantastically well organised event!
Ackworth Grange will be open for events for the forseeable future and hopefully we will be back here at some point for another great event.
Last month we played a great event for the Ferrari owners club at the Queens Hotel in Leeds. The Queens Hotel is a really popular event venue choice in Leeds and they host many weddings, conferences and amazing events like the one we were invited to play for the Ferrari owners club!
The Queens Hotel is one of the most famous landmarks in Leeds with it’s beautiful Art Deco-style rooms and lovely restaurant. We always love playing here and the event for Ferrari was no exception.
Thanks again to the Ferrari owners club and the Queens Hotel Leeds for having us!
We were recently asked to play at the Titanic hotel in the dock area of Liverpool for Steve and Charlotte. We love this venue! From the HUGE main room with the big lights to the awesome staircase in the adjoining room, it’s a BIG venue with a great atmosphere.
The industrial history of the building is obvious. It is part of Stanley dock, designed by Jesse Hartley and opened on 4 August 1848 as the only one in Liverpool which was built inland, all the others being built out from the foreshore. The adjoining bar is especially industrial looking with its exposed brickwork, metal girders and pillars.
The happy couple had Ed Sheeran, Perfect as their first dance which was enjoyed by all. Thanks for having us to be a part of your big day!
The wedding season is now in full flow and this weekend we were at the lovely Coniston hotel in Skipton playing for Gemma and Robbie.
After a beautiful day of sunshine the drinks were flowing and the party kicked off with the bride and groom’s first dance – ‘Then’ by Brad Paisley. Gemma’s dad Peter was then invited to the dance floor for a fantastic daughter and father dance which was lovely to see.
We managed a last minute addition to the set list – ‘don’t stop believing’ by Journey which was great fun to finish with.
We had an absolutely amazing time and it’s great when family and friends are so inviting and want to bring the party!
So thanks again Gemma and Robbie and we wish you all the best for the future!
