Wirral Wedding Band at Jacqui & Phil’s West Tower Wedding

Wirral Wedding Band 40 Thieves at West Tower

Wirral wedding band 40 Thieves performed at Jacqui and Phil’s wedding at West Tower last Saturday. Jacqui & Phil contacted me in March last year when they started looking for wedding entertainment.

They wanted me to perform during the day on piano & vocals and my live band for the evening. They were planning their 2013 wedding at top Lancashire wedding venue West Tower.

Happily, they decided to go with solo piano and vocals sets to cover the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. After turnaround, that fine Wirral wedding band The 40 Thieves (trio) would provide their evening entertainment. We also decided to rely on the Ipad to mix their chosen playlist between the live band sets to keep the party going throughout the evening.

Our regular bass player Mark was unavailable so we offered the alternative trio with sax: I played piano & vocals, bass keyboard and drum loops with Jon on guitar & vocals and Geni on sax, flute & vocals. It’s a great format and a great sound. Jacqui and Phil had decided against the 4-piece format with our drummer to limit the overall volume and space taken up by the band.

After their first dance “Greatest Day“, we kept everyone up on the dancefloor for the rest of the night as promised. We played quite a few chart requests and plenty of rock n roll. One of the best dancers on the night was a very young 90 years old. How about that! Since our success at West Tower, two of their guests have already booked the same format for next year. Yay!

Unless you have a particular set theme, your wedding entertainment should offer something for everyone. We have been playing together on and off since we were at school. An accomplished, live wedding band who are intent on having fun are going to wow your guests and guarantee a great night. Now, isn’t that what weddings are all about?
