Hello, we are looking for a live duo to play at our tipi wedding in Backwell this summer. We would ideally like someone to play outside for an hour for welcome drinks and set a louge/laid back vibe and then play again in the evening (1-2hours) to start the party - more contemporary, like you have on the website to listen to. You have a great voice! Are you available and how much would this cost?
I sent you an email via another website but wanted to go via two channels, just incase!

We are a 30 yr old couple getting married at a private house on a cider farm in Gloucestershire in a lovely marquee on Saturday April 30th. Looking for a set of indie rock and some pop, relaxed first half, upbeat second half. Thinking of wedding dance song like Beach Boys 'god only knows.' Closest train station is Lydney. Easy detour from. Do you have an available set list?
I am looking for a mariachi band to come to the office next Monday and play at people's desks to cheer them up.
As it is Blue Monday! A bit of fun for the staff.
We are based in Bristol very close to the train station.
Are you available on the 16th January?
If you're looking for a band who will transform a tent full of people having quiet drinks into a raging fury of dance laughter merriment and general good times then BLAG are the act you're looking for. We booked them for a green and event to raise money to fight greenbelt destruction nearby and they instantly communicated with everybody In the room (which ranged from early 20s to late 50s and 60s) the minute they started playing. A great repertoire of traditional favourites and interesting covers especially the doors' "people are strange" They're compact yet sound huge- and the great calling instructions had everybody laughing and smiling no matter how awful they were at dancing the Gay Gordon!. Sometimes this kind of ceilidh can be slow and boring when everybody doesn't really know what to do but the band made it all happen very quickly and very enjoyably . Did I mention they're nice guys as well?
I’ve been Mrs Donnelly for 2 weeks now and I’m still smiling from how lovely our wedding was which is mainly thanks to you and your band mates.
Our family and friends and still talking about the day and how great the ceilidh was. The atmosphere you created was just what we wanted and you were wonderful when the singer didn’t turn up.
We can’t thank you enough.
