World’s Strongest Men

World’s Strongest Men


July 31st, 2013


Last weekend saw us play just the one gig, but as they say, it’s quality and not quantity.

We were back in north Northumberland at the very beautiful Doxford Hall near Embleton. Despite being beautiful and the perfect backdrop for wedding photos it has a notoriously tough load in. Just ask any DJ or wedding band. It’s like a stage from the world’s strongest man competition only we are musicians and not the world’s strongest men (some people would say we aren’t even men). Anyway, a lot of puffing, panting and cursing later and we finally got the gear in and played for the wedding of Hamish and Jo. We had a great night made all the worthwhile when we chatted to the lovely couple and were thanked by them at the end of the night. We’d like to wish them all the best for the future and hope to see you at a gig in the not too distant future.

This week we are playing a wedding at Lartingdon Hall in Teesdale, Couny Durham and have our first public gig in what seems like an age. It’s at The Marquis of Granby in Sunniside, Gateshead on Friday. We’ve never played at this venue before so not sure what to expect but we hear it has a good reputation for live music so are looking forward to it! If you find yourself with nothing better to do then come down, we start at nine. We’ve just bought some new lights to add to our collection so if the music doesn’t impress you at least the lights might.
