With weddings being bread and butter for a function band like us, it’s always fun to play something a bit different. December being Christmas party season gives us plenty of opportunity to break out from the wedding band mould and stretch our musical legs! SVA has a pretty youthful workforce, meaning we could drop many of the older classics and stick with a modern set, which is always fun.
Familiar Surroundings At Donington Park
This was the band’s third live performance at Donington Park, the previous two occasions being weddings, and it’s starting to feel quite familiar. The load in is straight forward, and as you can see from the photos below, there’s a great stage for us. Playing down a long room like that is good fun, and especially when the audience are as receptive as the SVA staff were!
The set had many great moments, but we particularly enjoyed bringing out the more modern. tracks. Happy, Locked Out Of Heaven, and Get Lucky were all lots of fun. It’s always fun to watch an audience’s reaction when we break out the vocoder in Get Lucky!
Looking forward to our next trip to Nottinghamshire!
