As gigs for live wedding bands go, this one was pretty special. On September 10th this year, our 6 piece band travelled to St Austell, Cornwall, to perform at a Wedding at The Eden Project. It took us 5 hours but it was well worth the effort – The Eden Project was amazing and such a unique and wonderful venue for a wedding!
Whilst we were all setting up and sound checking, the excited wedding party were sipping champagne and having canapés at the Mediterranean Biome – a stunning backdrop for any special celebration. We started to play background music at 6.30pm as people began to gather into the big function room called The Gallery which overlooks the Eden Garden with its spectacular gardens and Biomes. There were balloons and flowers everywhere and this together with our professional lighting system made the atmosphere warm and inviting.
Following the all-important first dance, we played to a packed dance floor all night, performing hit after hit of popular songs and everyone loved it! There was a lot of dancing and singing along and at 1am when the party was coming to a close, so many people came up to say what a fantastic night it had been. We had the pleasure of performing with our new backing vocalist and sax player, Natasha Willis who did a fabulous job on the night! Both female singers are extremely experienced singers and performers and they love doing what they do – encouraging everyone to have a fantastic time!
With all members in the band being able to sing, the sound is dynamic and exciting. We also played with Tom Denton, our keys player and vocalist who managed to get some time off from his tour with Cee Lo Green! Robin joined us on bass and he really got into the groove! We are so pleased that Tom, Robin and Natasha have joined our line up – they are fantastic musicians who all went to the same music college and who all share the same huge passion about live music and performing!
