REPLAY Wedding and Party Band in France
As August comes to an end we'd usually expect the heat of the summer sun to be cooling a little... but no-one told the sun today and the barometer pushed towards 36c. Lucky for us, today's bride and groom had a great space for us to play under; a rather lovely marquee, complete with a lovely wooden dance floor.
Whilst we headed south, fellow musicians were arriving at my neighbours house for their daughters vin d'honneur (they'd wanted REPLAY but we were already booked). I heard later that our friends had suffered under the same sun... but with virtually no shade.
Please... when you're booking your band for your fabulous sunny wedding in France remember that the sun is just as bad for gear and musicians as rain. Speakers can overheat and of course the poor musicians can burn... so don't forget the SHADE.
Today REPLAY were booked for the evening party and a Jazz Quartet were booked to play during the meal.
The couple had wanted everyone and everything in place before any guests arrived which meant that REPLAY were on site for several hours before we played. But the clients were happy to pay for the extra hours so we were more than happy to oblige.
After our get-in we moved the car, changed into our party clothes and sat under a tree enjoying the fabulous hog-roast whilst listening to four very talented French musicians.
And as the sun set and the August super-moon rose we turned on our lights and got the evening party dancing... and dancing... and dancing... and at 2:00am we waved goodbye and went in search of the Agen Ibis for a well deserved sleep!
