Just back from a great gig at Coventry’s newest live music night at Escape. It proved an ideal opportunity for a few couples looking to book later in the year to check out the band. The vast majority of our work is at private functions and playing as a weddings band, which made this a rare opportunity to see the band play live.
These nights always run later than our usual evening entertainment; tonight not starting until after 11pm. The shorter sets we play and the narrower demographic allow us to put together a high impact set, more like those we pay at corporate functions.
Set highlights tonight included Superstition (such a great Stevie Wonder vocal to aim for!), Sweet Child of Mine and Forget You by Cee Lo Green. Forget You is one of the latest additions to the repertoire; its first outing being at a recent corporate event for Coty Prestige. It’s got such a great vibe that song, and never seems to fail to get a dance floor excited. Looks like it could be one of the tracks of this summer’s weddings season- with one of tonight’s wedding couples insisting we play out at their wedding later in the year. We’ll be more than happy to oblige!
Right. Off to bed now to rest up for tomorrow’s wedding at Donnington Park in Derbyshire.
