Birthday party (adult)
- Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
Celebrate a special birthday, where the party will be held indoors. I have two pianos..... One upright in the conservatory ( has a beautiful sound ) & a baby grand in the sitting room. I would like a sophisticated mix of music, Jools Holland, Jaime Cullum kind of thing?? The party guests will be a wide range of ages... So a little something to appeal to everyone.
I am helping to arrange the Open University Degree ceremony due to take place in the Harrogate International Centre on Friday 19th May and we require a brass band. The ceremony commences at 14:00 but the band may be required to attend earlier for a rehearsal (11:00).
14:00 – 14:30 (pre ceremony musical programme)
16:00 – 16:30 (after the ceremony, recession)
The band would be able to play their own programme of music, in agreement with the ceremony manager.
There would be a green room available to use before and after the ceremony for storage etc. and we would provide tea, coffee and a light sandwich lunch.
If there is anything further you need to know please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you could let me know whether there might be a band available and a quote for the cost of hiring that would be great.
I look forward to hearing from you.

He has had his first major heart surgery at only 4 days old plus a few minor surgery's in between. Caleb has lots more hurdles to face and is on the urgent transplant list.
Clare & her family have been staying at scott house it is home from home where families can stay to be near there sick children. Scott house only opened last October and relies entirely by voluntary donations with out this place clare said they truly would of been lost.
The fundraiser is to give a little bit back.

The event is March 11th
If there is anything else you need to know please contact me.
currently looking to get married on the 14th Dec (thursday) we've decided this time of year and date due to budget. im still a student and my partners working full time to support us but we dream of our perfect wedding.
we love the idea of having a hearty hot meal because of the time of year we have chosen. My partner is polish and we maybe was thinking the sweets could be poilsh deserts?
Communication with Wes beforehand was easy and straightforward, we asked Wes to please learn three new songs for our ceremony to be played at different times which he was more than happy to do- and they sounded just perfect! The band was extremely professional with their equipment setup and made life super easy for the organisers. I couldn't have imagined better entertainment and would recommend to everyone.
