Roisin & Jonathan’s Wedding
We started our week in the beautiful Whistledown Hotel in Warrenpoint last night. It was Roisin and Jonathan’s wedding, so thanks to both of them for inviting us along to play a few tunes. The Whistledown was looking great as usual, and the function room was dressed to perfection. The hotel has a lovely modern contemporary feel, and the room is a great setting for any wedding meal.
Roisin and Jonathan both inspired this blog title! We were chatting to them both after we had finished setting up, and Roisin mentioned that she loves ‘Rock the Boat’, and asked would we play it in the disco. Our answer was ‘Of course, no problem at all’ – to which Jonathan piped up, there’ll be no ‘Rock the Boat’ it’s crap! lol We’re guessing any ladies and educated men reading this know who got their way without us spelling it out! lol
We kicked things off with our version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Load’ for Roisin and Jonathan’s first dance – which was a nice change, as we haven’t played it in quite a while, as ‘Perfect’ has gotten so popular! We had loads of requests to get through during the night after that. Everything from Boxcar Brian (yeah, Boxcar Brian!!) to the Vengaboys! The dance floor just buzzed more and more as the night went on, and was absolutely bouncing when we finished the night with our version of Mr Brightside as a special request for Roisin and Jonathan! 🙂
Thanks again to Roisin and Jonathan for booking us to play at their wedding. They’re such a lovely couple, and it was really nice to meet them. They also gave us a couple of bottles of wine – the first time any couple has done that, thanks very much guys! 🙂 Finally, we’ll sign off this post by wishing them well on their honeymoon. They’re going on a Mediterranean Cruise, which should be fantastic! Have a great time guys!
