After an extended break from live performance going back to December 1st, we were straight back to it with a wedding bash on the first Saturday of 2019.
The location was Orchardleigh, an estate so vast they have managed to find a whole new venue within its grounds. It is called “The Walled Garden” and has apparently been open for 4 years, so it was nice to finally perform there!
It took us a while to figure out where to park (it was very dark, in our defence), but once the vehicles were in place we were able to enjoy an easy load in. By 7.30 we were all set and ready to go, with a large and foliage-covered photo booth joining us at the edge of the dance floor.
The first dance was “Tenerife Sea” by Ed Sheeran, and the subsequent first set went rather well – our R&B/Hip Hop/Soul covers being particularly well received. During the break we had a nice chat with videographer Rob Taylor, and it was soon time for the second set.
