Singing and playing things she can hit with a stick. Or shake.
Pete on Bass and technology
Bass is like air. You only notice when there isn't any
Mark on guitar and guitar technology
making noises you didn't think possible
Richard on drums and ethereum
Eclectic rhythm master of the universe
But we do!
So...here we are. You've made it this far so you might as well read the next bit.
We're a four piece band who specialise in weddings blah blah blah. There should probably be a load of stuff in here but everyone includes that sort of thing. So here's what I'm thinking. I'll just list the bits that make a difference and then you won't need to read through all the waffle and we can both get on with our lives. Deal?
Ok, here goes
- There are four of us in the band. We've been playing for years and we're seriously good. We have a massive live sound and we use technology in disturbing quantities to make it that way. Pete has a headache a lot of the time but he's only the bass player so it doesn't really matter
(Don't tell him I said that!)
- We play all over the place. Nationwide in fact. We truly recognise the value of a good Sat Nav. And it also means we don't get anywhere late. We turn up when you ask us to.
- The set list changes. A lot. So we might be playing Dizzy Rascal this week, but we might not be next week and we might be playing Taylor Swift instead. (Who do you think would win in a fight between Dizzy Rascal and Taylor Swift?).
Anyway, we do this all the time, so if you want to get the best out of us, then take our advice. Imagine, by John Lennon is a great song that you might love. But we don't own a white grand piano and we aren't married to a mad Japanese woman, and we know that you probably don't want it played at your wedding. Really. You don't. Even if your Auntie and Uncle from Bracknell love it.
- We've got really good equipment that sounds great. We'll sound brilliant when we play for you. No, your six year old nephew can't have a go on the drums. Why not? Because it's worth three and a half grand and he's been drinking neat Jack Daniels since he got here. Under the table in the corner. We've been watching.
- Still with me? Just checking
- You can get a pub band for £250. But you don't want one to play at your wedding. There's a reason why they're only £250 and it's because they play in pubs. No doubt there are exceptions, but in the same way that you wouldn't use a Mr Kipling jam sponge for your wedding cake, you don't want a pub band to play at your wedding. The moral here is to use specialists to make things special. That's why they're called specialists. And that's what we are. Wedding specialists
- Yes, Candy will tell you the secret of her lipstick. Frankly, the rest of us are getting a bit bored with the admiration it draws from attentive women in the audience. Especially when there are three gorgeous men in the band to look at. We've even been described as "Easy on the eye". No, seriously. I can prove it!
- I said I wouldn't ramble on. Now look what you've made me do. Pffft.
