WELCOME to the summer! It's difficult to comprehend where the time has actually gone since 2017 crept onto the scene five months ago. Us Beat Junkies haven't stopped - after all, there's no rest for the wicked when you're one of the most popular function bands in London!
We thought we'd give you a little low down on some of our favourite shows so far this year, you might even pick up a tip or two for your own planning!
Remember January? Feels like an age ago now, doesn't it? Well right back at the start of this year, we headed to Homewood Park Hotel near Bath for a pretty incredible 21st birthday party. What a crowd, and what a venue, too! We really cannot recommend Homewood Park enough for weddings and parties, it's such a great fit for live bands!
Fast forward through to March, and we had the absolute pleasure to perform at The British Academy right in the midst of London's glitzy West End. Now, as one of the busiest and best function bands London has to offer, we've played some pretty incredible venues in the past - but this one really took our breath away! Take a look at this snap of the room we managed to grab before our show...
Moving into April, wedding season started creeping onto the scene nice and early! We headed out to Oxfordshire for a show at one of our absolute favourite venues, Lains Barn. This beautiful little spot is a wedding band's dream - a great sound, fabulous staff and the perfect atmosphere for live music. And as you can see, the audience were pretty awesome too!
In fact, we found ourselves recognising a surprisingly large number of the wedding party that night...it turns out this was, in fact, a rebooking from a wedding we played out in Italy a couple of years back. We even had some guests tell us they were changing the date of their wedding so Beat Junkie could make it for their reception. It looks like it won't be the last we'll be seeing of this wonderful group of people!
That's just a little taste of our year so far - drop back in next month for more from a positively packed summer of shows for Beat Junkie!
