The Swinging Bass Trio and Band have played at Moxhull Hall Hotel, Sutton Coldfield twice in the past and we are delighted to say that we have been booked to play there again for a wedding in September 2012.
The first time was in August 2008 when we provided back ground music during wedding drinks. It was a lovely sunny day and played outside in the shade while the guests chatted and enjoyed their drinks and canopies.
In July 2008 the trio (sax, keyboard and double bass) played quietly during drinks and the meal in the permanent marquee. After the meal a curtain was swept back to reveal the band all set and ready to go. We were joined by the drummer and trumpeter and it was not long before soon we had the guests dancing away. We played a mixture of swing and pop covers. As before, we started with swing. As the evening developed we included more and more pop covers, so we ended on a high note with everyone dancing.
The Bride, Lisa, had arranged for there to be a BBQ later in the evening and we were able to enjoy this when the DJ took over from us.
As a result of this wedding we were invited to play at another at Hogarth’s Hotel, Dorridge, near Birmingham in July 2010. There is a blog too about that wedding.
This September we will play during drinks and the meal, and then for the evening reception and party.
