James and Lucy's wedding in Evershot near Dorchester.

"We are just sitting in our hotel in Rome talking about the wedding (again!) and realised we hadn't thanked you properly. We were bowled over at how good you guys were, we couldn't have asked for a better band. Our guests loved you, and couldn't stop telling us how good you were, even the next day at breakfast! Our first dance was amazing and you had everyone up dancing the night away! Thank you again for helping to make our day so special. Let us know when you are next playing in swanage we would love to see you play again. Love Lucy and James x"

We were to be performing in the function room/skittle alley at the back of the pub. We were told that we would have to unload our equipment and then park down the road and we soon saw why, the car park had been turned into a mini golf course. A fantastic idea!

The weather was so good that, after setting up and sound checking, we decided to travel down the road to village green to warm up our playing fingers and vocals. The staff at the pub later entertained us with a whole host of meat selections and a pint to wash it down. We chatted to some of the guests that were keen to know what type of music we'd be playing as some of them were musicians themselves.

All the wedding guests were in top form, dancing all night long and we played a lot of encores. They also kept our DJ busy for the rest of the evening requesting everything from Dusty Springfield to One Direction.
