Congratulations Yorkshire Water in raising over ONE MILLION POUNDS for the amazing wateraid charity! We were very honoured to have played the wateraid ball for the second year in a row at the New Dock venue at the royal armouries in Leeds. As usual it was a great turnout and people gave generously for this very special cause.

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.

The lakeside cafe is a lovely spot in the historic Roundhay Park in Leeds. As the name suggests, the cafe is next to the lake so expect glorious views out over the water. And THIS weekend it was the venue for Jamie and Jane’s birthday celebration. What a lovely couple, and we were really glad to be part of your special day!

Christmas was fast approaching and one of our last weddings of 2018 was for the lovely Lucie and Scott at Middleton Lodge near Richmond in North Yorkshire. We started the day with an acoustic set in the afternoon during the drinks reception in the main entrance hallway. This is always a favourite part of the day for us and it’s great to see family and friends getting together for drinks and chats!

Last weekend we had an great time playing for Sam and Georgina at the amazing East Riddlesden Hall in Keighley near Leeds. East Riddlesden Hall is national trust grade 2 listed barn near Keighley who specialise in weddings. The barn is a blank canvas allowing you to put your own stamp on the day and always looks great with a rustic theme. The new glass front has really added a great focal point to the venue.

Georgina and Sam had The Maccabees – Toothpaste Kisses as a SURPRISE first dance played for them by some friends which was a great touch.

It was our 7 piece show band out for the evening playing two sets with dj playlist music in between which really fills the space in a big barn like this.

Last weekend we had the privilege of playing at the New Dock Hall in Leeds for the fantastic charity WaterAid.

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.
