We played at a delightful Diamond Wedding Anniversary last summer. A surprise garden party was organised by the family of the couple celebrating their anniversary. All their friends, including some who were at the wedding 60 years ago came.
To keep the band sheltered from the sun (or was it the promised rain?) a small number of gazebos were linked together in the garden. The rain did keep away and we were treated to a lovely sunny August Sunday afternoon.
We were asked to play swing music and that we did with a lot of Sinatra and Michael Bublé songs. As the afternoon developed we included some pop covers from the 1960’s and some rock and roll favourites.
It was a wonderful afternoon and we are looking forward to going back for the couple’s 70th anniversary!
