What a fantastic wedding! The Swinging Bass has just provided quiet background music during drinks at a wedding at Nuthurst Grange, Warwickshire!

Nuthurst Grange is in Warwickshire and also convenient for Birmingham, Coventry, and Leicestershire – all in the Midlands.

So many people came to ask for requests and to say how great and suitable the music was. The hotel has also taken our details to add us to their list of recommended bands.

We played a mixture of tunes the guests knew, and also from the Michael Bublé, and Sinatra swing music song books. We are looking forward to returning to Nuthurst Grange very soon!

Wedding at The Pavilion, Branston Golf Club, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire

 

It was a very hot July day when The Swinging Bass band played at The Pavilion, Branston Golf and Country Club, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire. The six piece live band had been booked to play for the evening party.

Our vocalist and guitar wiz, Dave, was still on holiday, so again we invited John, a great friend and Sinatra and Bublé vocalist, to be with us. He is no mean pop vocalist too, and guaranteed to get a party going!

It was decided to play 3 sets and the first dance was medley of You Make Me Feel So Young, Fly Me To The Moon and Come Fly With Me. This was followed with Moondance, all as Michael Bublé would sing them.

As the evening developed we moved from swing music to rock and roll (Blue Suede Shoes, See You Later Alligator), onto include hits like Dance the Night Away and Rocking All Over The World. We finished with New York, New York.

It was a hot summer night, and the guests generated a lot of their own heat too dancing and enjoying themselves!

Wedding at Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire



 

It was a January wedding at Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire, and the band was booked to play for the evening wedding party. Prestwold Hall is a magnificent venue where we have been to several times. In December and early January the Christmas decorations give a fantastic seasonal atmosphere.

We played three sets and not long into the first set we played the first dance, Close To You, by the Carpenters. We kept the dancing going with some of Michael Bublé’s best swing music. Then we were into pop covers and the like of Ladies Night, Play that Funky Music, Good Times, and Mustang Sally.

By the third the dance floor was packed and we were into Jail House Rock, Rocking All Over The World and finished with New York, New York.
