40th Birthday Party – Lichfield – January 2019
Once again we performed at one of our favourite Lichfield venues St Johns House. This time around at this luxury B&B it was for Davids 40th birthday party. As its quite a small venue and with restrictions on volume levels we brought along our state of the art electronic drums kit so we could easily adhere to the volume levels required. Who says you cant experience live music at appropriate volume levels in small venues eh? The guests and ourselves all had an amazing time with us performing tonnes of modern and older tunes catering for all musical tastes……We’re already booked in back there later in the year for a wedding too.

21st Birthday – Clitheroe, Lancashire – October 2018
At the start of October we once again we headed back up north to Clitheroe for a previous clients son’s 21st birthday party in Tithe Barn at Browsholme Hall. The venue really was something special with its ultra cool modern interior and lighting yet still retaining its barn like old skool style charm. In keeping with the age group of the party we performed a number of new songs including Shotgun by George Ezra and Promises by Calvin Harris & Sam Smith which went down brilliantly. (Both number one hits at the end of 2018) Lets just say that all guests were very happily merry and leery come the end of the night 😉

It is run to a very high and professional standard and the food is really something special too.
