I first met Sam & Michelle through playing at another wedding one year ago for Emma & Paul when they were both guests. Their initial request was for me to play for approximately one – 2 hours in between the end of the wedding breakfast and the beginning of the evening celebrations. However, much to my surprise I met another couple at the wedding for whom I am booked to play next December 2017. I had no idea they even knew the newly weds!
The groom-to-be for next December is a vocalist in a band and it wasn’t long before we found ourselves performing a duet. The night then took on a life of it’s own as a female vocalist stepped forward and suddenly the three of us became an improptu act with songs being chose at random in front of the audience of guests who by now had all congregated in the bar. We even had a solo rendition of Jingle Bells by a very young girl who received a fabulous round of applause.
A number of people commented on how the coming together of all of us had made their day and, pleased to say, the newlyweds were very happy with us too!
