Wow, what an amazing place! York castle museum is one of the coolest venues we can remember playing at. It’s a full Victorian street complete with shop fronts, lampposts and a handsome cab! What a venue for Jason’s party and boy, did we have a good time. After speeches from the youngsters and the lovely Rachel, it was time to kick the night off with DJ Oli. A couple of band sets from our 5 piece band followed with plenty of dancing on the cobbles. We absolutely loved this night and thanks to Rachel and Jason for booking us in!

Hull Collegiate School was the venue for Clare and Ben’s amazing wedding in August this year. Now, this was a serious good fun wedding.. From the first dance (Kiss the Girl from the little mermaid) through to saxophone solos at half time and one hell of a party in the second half, by the end we were totally wiped out! The weather was perfect and this was one of the best nights we can remember! Thanks again to Clare and Ben, you were both awesome :)

Rivington Hall Barn was the venue for Bexs and Carl’s amazing wedding this year. What a fantastic looking venue! The green foliage looked absolutely stunning and what a great evening. The couple had ‘Happy’ by Bruce Springsteen for their first dance and then our 5 (or sometimes 6!) piece band played to a fantastic crowd for the remainder of the evening. Thanks again to Bexs and Carl for a great evening and all the best for the future!

Thanks very much to Innovative Photography by Kirsten Jane for the pictures!

The West Mill in Darley Abbey near Derby is a fantastic wedding venue and this summer it played host to the lovely Rea and Dean. We were lucky enough to be your wedding band for the night and it really was a blast! The special couple chose ‘Heaven’ as their first dance and then our 5 piece band carried the night through. There was a special dance for Rea and her mum which was lovely to watch :)

Originally built as a cotton spinning mill, the West Mill played an important part in history and the industrial revolution. Having laid empty and derelict the four-storey building has been lovingly restored back to life. It’s now a fantastic wedding venue and we were super happy to be there to play for you.

All the best for the future from all the guys in the band :)

2 weeks ago we played an awesome wedding at a new venue to us – Larkspur Lodge in Knutsford for the lovely Zoe and James! Larkspur Lodge is a lovely rustic barn venue with lots of exposed brickwork and a fantastic vibe. Zoe and James had Chasing Cars as their first dance – take a listen to a very short clip below :) The whole evening was great fun and all the guests got a good shot at the dancefloor!

Thanks again Zoe and James for having us and all the best for the future!

In June we had a blast playing for Lyndsey and John at their wedding at the Crowne Plaza hotel on Liverpool’s Albert Dock. We started off in the afternoon with an acoustic set whilst guests arrived after the ceremony. It was a lovely day and Liverpool was heaving!

After the acoustic set it was on to the evening proper with the couple’s first dance and evening dancing.

Last weekend we played a rustic themed tipi wedding in the grounds of Giggleswick school for the lovely Cat and Dave. Tipi weddings always have a great laid back feel and this was no exception. From the moment we arrived everyone we met was smiling and having a great time so we knew we were in for a good one!

As soon as we kicked off, everyone jumped on the dance floor and there they stayed for the rest of the night. Our photo pod was a big success and got plenty of usage during the evening :)

There was an interesting end to the night but we managed to finish the last song before wrapping up after a raucous evening. After some good chats with family and friends the bride and Groom headed off and we enjoyed the last part of the night.
