Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy

Saturday 4th May 2013

We had the pleasure of performing at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy as used for the sailing events at the 2012 Olympics. Cheryl and Simon Easton contacted us in December last year to ask if the band and our DJ were available to play at their wedding in May. We were very pleased to be booked to play at such a prestigious venue and even happier that it was a relatively local one.

We set up as the guests were busy chatting away during the wedding breakfast and did a quiet line check so no one heard us. The venue staff at the Academy were very kind to us all and we were treated to some quiche an other food bits that all 6 of us munched on to fuel us up for the evening. Our man DJ Jim was on hand to warm up the audience when the evening kicked off at 7:30pm and did a great job of entertaining the band too with some top tunes.

The happy couple hadn’t picked a first dance and chose something from our setlist. We played Signed Sealed Delivered by Stevie Wonder for them and all their guests joined them on the dancefloor for a great night of dancing.

Great night, great venue with lovely staff. The balcony at the back of the venue has some fantastic views over the harbour and the bay of Weymouth. We’ve had some more enquiries for the Sailing Academy come through to our email so hopefully we’ll be back soon.
