Well it's been quite the year for all of us in Beat Junkie. With a summer of wedding antics and now moving into Christmas Party Band territory (10 weeks until Christmas!!!) we've had some amazing experiences performing in heavenly hotels, beautiful barns, marvellous marquees and terrific tipi's all in the name of music!
So we thought we'd share with you a few highlights of the past few months...
Back in August, we performed at a fantastic wedding at Pembroke Lodge in London. We cannot recommend this venue highly enough! A beautiful Grade II listed Georgian mansion, situated in lovely Richmond Park, Pembroke Lodge is just stunning and has the most amazing views right across the Thames Valley to Windsor and Surrey (aka wedding photos to die for!)
Here's Paula just about to sing the Bride and Groom's first dance...
And judging by this testimonial, the Bride was pretty happy: "Just a word to say the band was fantastic at our wedding. They did a great job and we had a ton of fun. Thanks again!
Thank YOU Nicole - it was a pleasure to perform for you.
the following week, we travelled down to Folkestone to the Red Barn, which is a brilliant venue with fantastic acoustics and lovely staff. We were pretty pleased with our stage set-up too:
Again, coming home to a brilliant testimonial makes us one happy band and we were so pleased that Richard, the Groom enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed performing for them: "The band were amazing, we have received many comments on them and how good they were. I could not have expected anything better. Would recommend to anyone and cannot comment enough on how happy we were with their performance."
As well as a full band set up, we can also provide and live lounge style acoustic duo - absolutely perfect for the drinks reception or the ceremony itself and we were so pleased to provide this at the beautiful Micklefield Hall, before the rest of the band arrived for the electric evening party! This was a fantastic evening crowd who did not leave the dance floor for the entire night (just what we like to see!) Here is a shot of the room set up before the guests entered.
A couple of weeks ago saw us back at one of our favourite venues - Essendon Country Club. We really do love this venue - one of the best sounding wedding venues around along with a fixed stage so perfect for hosting a live covers band. Check out our band Selfie before our first set!
Thank you to everyone who has booked us over the last few months - we've had a ball! If you would like to book Beat Junkie, please do get in contact - we'd love to perform for you!'
