The band headed to Thief Hall recently for Steph and Michael’s wedding. It was a special night as this was our first wedding in over 18 months that hadn’t been rearranged at least once. Plus, this particular little bit of Yorkshire was new to us – and we love to see different venues!
After receiving one of the friendliest welcomes we’ve had from any venue we quickly got to work loading in and setting up. Thief Hall is a really flexible venue with different spaces, so we were able to get sorted without disturbing proceedings too much.
It was soon time for the first dance and then straight into the first of our three sets. We always try to adapt what we’re playing to the audience rather than simply coming out a doing the same set every night. When we started there was a range of ages in the crowd, so we mixed up the decades to make sure everyone heard something they could dance to.
As the night went on the party just kept going so we were pulling out the big numbers all the way through the last set. We even got a few crowd singalongs! We loved our time at Thief Hall, and it was so great to celebrate Steph and Michael’s big day with them.
We were in party band mode in Leeds recently. This was Rebecca’s much delayed big birthday bash that was supposed to happen in 2020. She’d hired us back in late 2019, nearly two years before we got to play the actual gig!
We were at a venue we hadn’t visited before, The Mansion at Roundhay. The guys from Dine Venues who run the venue had been super helpful in the lead up to the party so we knew exactly what we were doing as soon as we arrived. After quite a few flights of stairs we were inside and all set up.
The event had been meticulously planned and we were very well cared for whilst we were waiting to play. It took a lot of willpower not to completely indulge ourselves, but we didn’t want to be too stuffed whilst trying to perform…
Showtime came and we were treated to some amazing performances on the dance floor. It turned out several of the birthday girls guests were pro and semi-pro dancers so their moves were better than ours! It has to be the first time we’ve seen guests pasodoble to a White Stripes number!
We had a wonderful night, and we were so glad we were finally able to celebrate Rebecca’s birthday in style.
We’re really pleased to announce that the band will be bringing the party to The Grand in York this New Year’s Eve. After a year off – because of you know what – we’re super excited to be back at York’s only 5 Star hotel to see in 2022 in style.
Our relationship with The Grand goes back a long way and we’ve been fortunate enough to be their house band on New Year’s Eve for more years than we can remember. We’ve also performed Christmas Parties, Corporate Events and weddings at this fantastic venue.
