The First Dance
Samantha and James' first dance was one of the biggest we have played in 2017! "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" is an 80's classic and is a huge amount of fun to play. If you don't know it click below for the official, all 80's, big hair and motorcycles video!
We couldn't write this blog without doing a piece on the venue. Ashdown is a stunning, and we do mean stunning, venue based in Sussex. The venue grounds are immense and will be perfect for all your wedding photos and guests to enjoy during the drinks reception.
The main reason why we love Ashdown though is the area where you eat your wedding breakfast and where the evening wedding party takes place. Here are some photos to show you what we mean! #nofilterneeded
The inside spaces lend themselves perfectly for entertaining and the staff, catering and everyone at the venue know how to get the most out of it. They were great to work with, being really helpful to the band, and were great to Samantha and James too.
The space lends itself really well for a band, framing the musicians and with a purpose built dance floor means that performing live with the band for the guests is a joy to do.
James and Samantha had a few requests that they wanted us to learn for the big day. We love learning an extra few tunes for our couples, as it really makes their day their own. We like our clients putting their stamp on the live sound of the band and asking us to learn an extra song or 2 is the perfect way to do this.
Here are the 3 extra the happy couple wanted us to perform live at the wedding.
These awesome songs allowed us to tailor the rest of the live band set around the happy couples prefered styles of music. We added in Teenage Dirtbag, All The Small Things and a few others to keep the set with that skater feel.
It was a fantastic to play for James and Samantha for the wedding day, we wish them all the best and hope to see them again on another gig sometime soon.
