REPLAY Wedding and Party Band in France
The last few weeks have been a testing time for the band, not least because in June we learned that our drummer was leaving. This was a huge blow. We're a busy gigging band and we spend months rehearsing so finding a replacement was not going to be easy.
REPLAY started life many years ago as a trio (Oui-Three) and we still book a number of gigs each year as the trio. Because we simply couldn't replace a drummer at such short notice we decided to continue as a three piece for our summer bookings.
We spent a couple of weeks working every day with new arrangements and customising and recording drums and bass backing tracks to ensure that we were ready and that we wouldn't let down any of our clients.
This incident taught us a few things :
We've recently been approached by another drummer and he comes highly recommended... hopefully we'll be back as a 5-peice in the autumn.
In the mean-time... we LOVE what we do... and we take it very seriously. All of our current clients have been brilliant and we'll make sure they all have fabulous parties... and for all our future clients... book REPLAY and you won't be disappointed!
A few clients have sent us some lovely emails with some rather lovely reviews... it's good to feel loved!
Thank you very much for letting us know you will be playing without a drummer. Don't worry that is not a problem at all for us We have only seen you once playing as Replay (with the drummer) and, to be quite truthful, we can't say we really noticed a great difference from your playing as a trio!
We welcome the original trio back! It would be a very different story if you had told us that either John or Stu weren't playing or, indeed, that you weren't singing!
If anyone who didn't know you as a trio is worried at not having a drummer at their party, don’t hesitate to give them our number.

And we also had these kind words from NEDWA
I have seen these musicians on several occasions both as a three piece band and as a five piece and at each event they have been brilliant. They played the type of music that got everyone up and dancing and singing along, ensuring a great time was had by all.
I am on the Committee of a local organisation, NEDWA, and we have booked both bands for various functions and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment and were up and dancing which is great, given the vast age range of 30s -80s within the NEDWA organisation.
I would have no hesitation in booking the trio for any function in the future as a great evening is guaranteed!
p.s. we're really really sad that Ben our lovely bass man has to sit out the summer after all his hard work! We really hope he's back with us again very soon!
