Dawn and Lee had a some very specific ideas, and were drawing some total blanks on what they wanted for their music. We were able to help them choose some great songs for the processional, register signing and recessional as well as arrange and play their first dance.
The Ceremony Music
In mid 2017, I (Matt) put up a short video of an acoustic version of Toy Story's You've Got A Friend on Instagram Dawn loved it and asked me to play it as one of their songs for the signing of the register. It is a brilliant song and one which I am sure the band will be playing again. Dawn and Lee walked in to How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You and out as husband and wife to Jackie Wilson's Higher and Higher, a fitting end to a lovely wedding ceremony.
For their first dance Dawn and Lee had this classic tune......
This is actually not a song that the band has played before so it was great to learn something new and perform it live with the 4 piece band for Dawn and Lee.
This is the second time we have played at Shenley Cricket Club and it is a venue that we love.
There are so many great areas that you can utilise on your wedding day and we absolutely love the conservatory area where you will have your wedding breakfast. It is gorgeous and even thought the weather wasn't quite on our happy couple's side, the venue still looked stunning.
We have a few more booked in at Shenley over 2018 and into 2019, and we can't wait to be back there for another awesome celebration.
Dawn and Lee had our Aisle To End Package. We covered everything musical from the start to the finish of the day, kicking it off at the ceremony with our acoustic duo which then followed the guests upstairs to the drinks reception.
The duo was then joined by the rest of the band in the evening and became our full 4 piece band. Dawn and Lee also had our manned DJ option to make sure that the dance floor was full all night long.
Huge congratulations to Dawn and Lee, we hope you have an amazing life together and we know how happy you will be!
Happy New Year! We hope that you all had an awesome Christmas and end of year celebrations full of family food and fun.
We had an awesome final gig of the year at Manning's Heath Golf and Wine Estate in Sussex. This is quickly becoming one of our favourite venues in the county.
The spaces on offer, the food and of course the wine are second to none and the level of service and standard that they provide is exceptional!
We had our acoustic duo performing for their wedding ceremony and drinks reception and then the 4 piece electric band and DJ for their evening party. We worked with Daisy and Steve to create the perfect wedding soundtrack to their big day.
Massive congratulations to all our summer Bride and Grooms. This summer AKA have played some seriously amazing weddings at wonderful venues all over the UK. We've played Castles, Marquees, Farms, Hotels, Schools, Galleries and Motor Museums!
It has been an amazing summer wedding season for the band with gigs all over the country. It has been easy to see why people want a good summer wedding with amazing sunshine and being able to make the most of the outdoor spaces that are now more and more common with the great venues that we play. One of the best of this year was Sophie and Kevin's wedding at Gate Street Barn on one of the hottest days of the year.
Sarah and Neil's wedding was held in a lovely marquee at their family farm. We love marquee gigs as they are so relaxed and chilled out and this is exactly what Neil and Sarah had for their special day.
We then had background music playing for the wedding breakfast buffet and provided microphones for their speeches. Just as well as they had 3 best men!
“Absolutely brilliant! Booked on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. Great communication throughout and really lovely friendly guys! Very talented and got everyone dancing all night! Thank you so much!”
