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.
