Hello from us all at Festival Folk HQ!
It has been a busy month indeed; we’re excited to report that we’ve been working incredibly hard over the last several weeks meeting up at our favourite rehearsal spot in the beautiful city of Brighton and perfecting our repertoire. Things are well and truly beginning to hot up with the wedding season upon us, we're so excited to be the festival wedding band for many lovely couples throughout 2017.
And along the way, it was Jim’s birthday!
Our front man Jamie has been hard at work juggling fatherhood and a busy musical schedule - plus we were all fortunate enough to witness his unerring love of garage music and MC’ing talents.
James H, our bassist, has spent most of April sitting in a theatre pit playing for Dogfight and the hilarious stage adaptation of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Meanwhile James A, our drummer has been working hard preparing for an album launch with Tuba Libres, an originals brass band, as well as making regular appearances with the Southampton Football Club Brass Band which recently featured on BBC’s South Today and Radio Solent.
Yes, everyone in the band is called James, and yes, it makes communicating between us all really tricky.
If you’d like us to play your wedding (and why wouldn’t you!) please don’t be afraid to drop us an enquiry. We’d absolutely love to play for your wedding or event.
