A splendid wedding bash at the Mount Somerset Hotel

January is normally quiet for us gig-wise, and this month we have just the one wedding in the diary.  It took place at a new venue for us, the Mount Somerset Hotel in, you’ve guessed it, Somerset.

We were booked for both the evening and daytime, so we arrived bright and early to set up for the drinks reception in the lounge area.   Once the ceremony had finished we played a solid set of tunes that the guests seemed to enjoy. The advantage of the chilly weather was that there wasn’t much chance of them abandoning us and heading outside…

After the meal Stu joined us with his drums and we set ourselves up in the swanky evening room at the back of the house. We were especially pleased to see lots of carpet and curtains to help with the sound!

Instead of having a first dance, the newlyweds opted to sing for everyone, and they nailed “Night and Day” to provide the perfect start to the evening.  The rest of the night was great, with the dance floor constantly busy.  Given that the bride is in a choir, it was no surprise that the sing-a-long moments featured some high quality vocals – makes a nice change from the norm…

So there you have it, 2018 off to a good start.  Congrats to a lovely couple.
