The long trek up to Harrogate was made all the more worthwhile thanks to an afternoon acoustic and the addition of our delightful new female vocalist to the evening set. Views were spectacular (sadly we didn’t manage to capture them on camera) and the sun shone throughout the day… simply a wonderful day in Yorkshire!
Acoustic Set Over Drinks Reception
Thanks to the glorious weather, we were able to set up outside for the acoustic set. It made for quite a picture as people arrived and walked down the elegant white walkway towards the marquee, being serenaded by our very own Mike and his chilled out acoustic pop and rock tunes.
5-Piece Live Band
Tonight gave us a chance to demonstrate our poppier side with the 5-piece band. Still fully live, our front man was given a chance to rock out on synthesizers making the awesome backing to tracks by Lady Ga Ga, Rihanna, Jessie J, Adele, Katy Perry and many more! The first dance was Hysteria by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs – a great, and unusual choice. It set the tone for the whole night – the dance floor never once waned, packed start to finish.
Late Night – Long Journey Back To Coventry!
The reception went on until well after 1am – revellers still rocking out to the tunes the DJ was pumping out. We remained until the party was over before packing down – giving us something of a late journey home. Always better to be safe than sorry I think we all stopped at one point or other for a quick kip in a service station. The dawn chorus greeted us home, along with our warm beds… Lovely!
