Jagger Off!

Jagger Off!


September 5th, 2013


As expected the Bank Holiday Weekend was a busy one for us. It started at Ramside Hall, County Durham where we played the wedding of Katie and Andrew. It’s the first time that we’ve had missiles thrown at us by the audience but thankfully the missiles were balloons and those doing the throwing were of a pre school age. Thankfully the rest of the crowd weren’t as hostile and even had us up for a second encore!

On Saturday we headed to Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club just outside of Hexham, Northumberland for the 40th birthday party of Jonathan. An open bar and a BBQ to rival the Gateshead TA were laid on for the guests that had travelled from throughout the UK. All that was left was for us to provide the music which we think we did a pretty good job of judging by the crowds reaction. We witnessed out first ever Jagger Off, a dance off but where only Mick Jagger-esque moves are allowed. Come midnight it was time for us to grudgingly leave despite Jonathan’s generous offer for us to stay and make the most of the free bar and food.

On Sunday we headed to Halgarth Manor, Pittingman, County Durham, a new venue for us that we were yet to play. We’d only been booked to play an hour by the Bride and Groom but we went down a treat despite the short set and early start time. Our work done we headed off and left them in the capable hands of The Wedding DJ.

Friday just gone was one of our ever fewer public appearances, this time at The Falcon in Prudhoe, Northumberland. The Pub’s layout meant that we were tucked into the far corner of the building playing across a void to the punters stood at the bar. Despite a slow start we managed to coax them from the bar, ever closer and onto the dance floor.

On Saturday we ventured out of the North East and down to York for the wedding of Kirsten and Dave at the rather nice Churchill Boutique Hotel. In the run up to the wedding the couple had requested songs by Bloc Party and Ian Brown so we knew that we were the right band for the occasion and we were pleased to say we weren’t wrong.

We’ve only got the one public show this weekend which is at The Annitsford Irish Club, Cramlington, Northumberland, on Sunday. It’s a 5pm start and the venue can get pretty busy. If you want a seat we suggest you head there now and take your camping gear, One Direction Style.
