Tuesday 21st of April will be a day that Alex and Lucy never forget! They got married on a beautiful, sunny day, and had their reception at a pub in a small village in Northampton, where the narrow roads are flanked by thatched cottages.
We were booked to play for a 4hr stint on their big day, and were to be found performing inside the pub in the event of rain. Fortunately, this never came, so it was under the gazebo we went. Even the canvas couldn’t protect us from the warmth of the sun, as it travelled directly over the top of us, and managed to give us a bit of colour as it poked it’s way through underneath the canopy!
It was a privilege to play for Alex and Lucy, and we were able to play a number of their favourite tunes, including a few made famous by ol’ blue eyes, Frank Sinatra. We even had young Toby (a nephew who happened to have his trumpet in the car!) come up and play a few tunes with us! He did fantastically and has a bright future ahead of him.
The feedback all-round was wonderful, and it’s with much anticipation that I look forward to the next JJ performance, less than two weeks away!
