Alice & Daniel’s Wedding
Alice and Daniel had invited us along to play a few tunes at their wedding last night – cheers guys, thanks for asking us to be part of your wedding plans. We were back in the Armagh City Hotel, and the staff were on the ball, as everything was ready to go when arrived. The room was sectioned off, so we could setup while everyone was finishing their teas and coffees. That was great, as it allowed us to setup without annoying everyone! lol
It’s not like us to pick an obvious blog title, but we couldn’t resist it for this! lol As our bride was called Alice, we obviously were asked to play Smokey’s ‘Alice’, which went down a storm, and filled the floor. Just in case you don’t, ‘Sally called’ is the opening lyric to the song! The song went down that well, we even played again as the last song of the night!
Alice and Daniel had requested Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ for their first dance. We had talked about learning it, so that was a good excuse for us to bump it up the list! Last night was the first time we actually played it as a first dance (although we did have a wee practice during the night at Thursday’s wedding), and it’s definitely a great first dance song! After that it took us a while to suss out the crowd and get them dancing. However, sometimes that’s just how it is, as people aren’t really for a pile of dancing until the food settles and/or the drink kicks in!
Thankfully it didn’t take too long to get the craic going, and (amazingly to us!) Honky Tonk Woman was one of the first songs to get a good crowd on the floor! It’s one of our favourite songs to play, so we weren’t complaining! 🙂 After that it was plain sailing, and (apart from the odd quiet song) we had a great crowd on the floor for the rest of the night! 🙂
Thanks again to Alice and Daniel for booking us to play at their wedding. It was great to meet them both and their lovely young son Luke. As Luke is only two, they don’t want to leave him for too long, so aren’t heading on a long trip away at the moment. However, they’re going up to Donegal for a couple of days – National Geographic recently named it the coolest place on Earth, so there’ll be plenty to see and do!! Have a great time guys!
