The Moonies’ hectic spring schedule continues! May was definitely one of our busiest to date with gigs every Friday and Saturday, and we’ve already notched our first June wedding. Here’s a quick run down:
30th April – Coombe Lodge, Somerset
This was a marvellous night – one of those weddings where everyone gets into the party spirit without feeling the need to get (a) violently drunk or (b) just violent! The first dance was “Wonderful World” by Sam Cooke, which Stu does a splendid job of singing, but the real highlight was the bride’s father interrupting our 2nd set to sing a couple of songs to backing tracks. Sinatra eat your heart out!
5th May – Coombe Lodge, Somerset
Same venue, completely different night. The first dance was another soul classic, this time “Stand By Me”. The rest of the evening went smoothly, with things properly getting going once the disco kicked in with a selection of French songs requested by the bride. The playlist we put together seemed to work rather well and I think we kind of got the songs sequenced in the right order…
