REPLAY Wedding and Party Band in France
Not all of the couples that book REPLAY are planning a large wedding. Many of the very beautiful chateaux in this region of France are perfect for smaller, more intimate events. The very lovely Chateau La Durantie is one such venue. Whilst it can host very large events it is also perfect for a smaller gathering.
Today's lovely couple booked us last year to play during their champagne reception and also again for their evening party. However over the last year their plans changed and instead they wanted us to provide a portable PA and a playlist of their memorable recorded songs during the champagne. They also asked, after we had played at their party, if we would stay on site for an additional 2 hours to extend their day.
We arrived at mid-day and set up on the terrace and then we disappeared into the marquee to set up for the evening.
Overnight we had had some terrible terrible storms (so much so that our previous evening's gig was cancelled) but today the chateau's marquee was dry and beautiful and by mid-day the clouds were clearing on another fabulous Dordogne summer day.
We're often asked to leave our PA and lighting in place, as many couples want their party to continue after the band finishes. Whilst we won't leave our gear behind, for a small extra charge we are happy to stay on site for an extra hour or two. We leave the full lighting rig, hazer and PA in place and a universal connection for a phone or mp3 player.
Guest are then free to dance the night away for 2 more hours... and this is just what we did today. As everyone danced the night away we sat outside in the gardens with a very nice cool glass of wine and we planned next years new songs under the starry sky.
All weddings are different but we love them all nonetheless!
