Hillgrove Hotel Christmas Party 7/12/19

We played our first Christmas party this year in the wonderful Hillgrove Hotel in Monaghan on Saturday night. It’s the first time that the venue has booked us to play at one of their Christmas parties, so thanks to them for giving us the chance to entertain their party guests! 🙂

The place was looking very festive, and amazingly was laid out to comfortably accommodate the 340+ crowd without everyone squashed together!  No mean feat!   Also, everything was running like clockwork – we were scheduled to start at 10, and all the tables were served and finished at 9:45…

Julie Ann & Mark’s Wedding

We kicked our week off last night at Julie Ann and Mark’s wedding.  Our blog titles and pics are normally a bit weird, so that’s nothing new!  However, their choice of dessert inspired this post title!  They had chosen brandy baskets, which we haven’t seen in a long time, so we thought that would sort the blog title.  They were being sent to the tables just as we were loading in, and they looked tasty…

Colleen & Johnny’s Wedding

We had our third and final wedding of the week on Saturday night, thanks to Colleen and Johnny for inviting us along.  Their choice of first dance inspired this blog title.  They had chosen Rascal Flatt’s brilliant ‘Bless the Broken Road’, so we thought we’d go a wee bit more predictable than normal with the blog title…

Lauren & Conor’s Wedding

Second wedding of the week last night, and we were back in the stunning Lough Erne Resort.  It was Lauren and Conor’s big day, and their choice of disco inspired this blog title!  They had a chosen a DJ and Sax combo for their disco, which is the first time we’ve seen that at a wedding.  In fairness it sounded great, and Anton was great on the saxophone…

Shauna & Robert’s Wedding

We spent our Friday night in Ballymena at Shauna and Robert’s wedding reception.  It was actually Robert who inspired this blog title!  We were chatting to him again during the buffet, and asked was everything ok for him?  He replied “Yeah, everything is great.  Do you know Larry?”  Of course we didn’t know Larry, and were caught hook, line and sinker! lol  We replied “No, we don’t know Larry”, to which Robert replied “Well, I’m as happy as Larry!” lol  We thought it was really funny, and it also gave us an excuse to use a funny dog pic for our header…

Anup & James’ Wedding

We were on the road again on Saturday evening, and back in one of our favourite wee towns – Carlingford!  The groom inspired our typically unusual title for this post!  We heard the speeches while we were setting up, and James mentioned that he met his wife to be when they both worked in Enterprise.  So, after seeing their current ad campaign with Gerard Butler, that was our title sorted…

Julie-Ann & Dan’s Wedding

We had our third and final of last week’s weddings on Saturday evening, and one of the guests inspired this blog title.  We always ask for requests, and he came over looking some of The Rolling Stones.  So, we happily played our version of Honky Tonk Women – which we love playing!  In fairness to him he danced, and really seemed to enjoy the song.  Then he came over at the end saying that it was a great version, and Keef would be proud!  That made our night to get such a great compliment, so that was the blog title sorted…

Ruth & Zack’s Wedding

We were back on the road again last night, and Ruth and Zack’s choice of first dance inspired this blog title and pic.  They had picked Uncle Kracker’s beautiful song Smile, which was such a great choice!  However, the song title reminded of us of seeing the new Joker movie a few days ago, hence the unusual ‘smile’ pic above…

Lynne and Adam’s Wedding

Lynne inspired this blog title, as she had picked a beautiful red wedding dress for her big day!  She looked every bit the stunning bride, and definitely a lady in red!  Surprisingly she didn’t pick Lady in Red as her first dance! lol…

Rebecca & Kieran’s Wedding

Saturday night’s crowd inspired this blog title and pic.  We always scan the room (and dance floor obviously!) when we’re playing, just to see how the crowd are reacting to our song choices. Two 0r three songs in, and we looked to our left and a saw everyone at one of the tables dancing on their seats!  We see that sometimes towards the end of the night, but never two or three songs in…
