The Captain’s Summer Ball – Aston Wood Golf Club

It’s always a pleasure driving up to a great golf course. The feeling of space and nature that envelops you as you make your way onto the grounds is always a delight. Aston Wood Golf Club in Sutton Coldfield is no exception – the 18 hole course set in 300 acres of rolling West Midlands countryside really is idyllic.

A Spectacular Room

A recent addition to the facilities at Aston Wood Golf Club is the Fotherly Suite – and truly lovely it is too. Wooden construction around a modern, yet elegant room made not only a wonderful space to be in, but the acoustics around the dance floor made it a great place for us to play.

Once again playing alongside a DJ – this time the Club’s House DJ – the band were there to set the tone and keep the diverse audience moving. Comprised of Golfers and self proclaimed Golf Widows, the demographic was pretty much as wide as they come with all manner of guests there. And so, to play a variety of tunes to please them all – this was the challenge!

Lively Dancing Songs

With the full 5-piece lineup, the set list could stray into the popper end of the spectrum, though it’s safe to say that the classics were what really got this audience going. We love playing all manner of music, but when a particular track – this time one of Michael Jackson’s finest – brings everyone to the dance floor it makes for a really fun night. Check out our photos from the night below – taken by our good friend the DJ!
