Clay House Halifax

Whilst the Royal Wedding had the world’s attention, we took a trip down the M1 to another very special day in an amazing historic venue. We were performing at Natalie and Rob’s wedding which was taking place at Clay House in West Vale near Halifax.

The venue looked amazing as we arrived in the sunshine. It’s a Jacobean hall with parts of the building over 400 years old. Now, as a wedding band from York we’re pretty used to historic venues, but this one looked particularly great next to the some lovely gardens.

One thing the original architects did overlook was where exactly a modern party band could set up… We did look at the minstrels gallery but we weren’t sure if the floor would take the weight! Luckily, we’re experienced at fitting into to pretty much any space so we were soon set up and ready to party.

Natalie and Rob had opted for our full evening package which includes our live DJ option, so Tom got straight to work to make the atmosphere as hot as the weather. By the time we started our first set everyone was ready to celebrate.

Our couple had asked us to perform two longer sets rather then three – which really worked well around the rest of their evening. We started with Natalie and Rob’s request – ‘You To Me Are Everything’ by The Real Thing and then went through our musical odyssey covering every decade form the 50’s until today!

We had a great night – everyone was up for a great time and celebrating Natalie and Rob’s wedding in style. Congratulations and best wishes from us.

UPDATE: We were so happy when Natalie and Rob posted this review online just a few days later:

“Absolutely fantastic band! Very professional in terms of contact and organisation before our event. Fabulous sound , really understood the guests and responded accordingly! Absolutely made our evening wedding reception go with a bang with so many guests commenting about how fabulous they were – and believe me they are not easily impressed! Highly recommended – no nerves or stress just a fab band !!!”
