It was great to be back at Moxhull Hall in Sutton Coldfield again last night. A truly stunning venue with a fab marquee.
Lucy & Jamie tied the knot yesterday and with one being a police sargeant and the other an army sargeant I reckoned on it being a lively do. How right I was…
Rarely does punk feature in my wedding set and although I’m prone to a good bit of indie-rock the Pistols rarely feature. Last night was all about a bunch of rather drunk bobbies and soldiers though and the whole punk set came out – Clash, Pistols, Stranglers… you name it. Add to this a good slice of Stone Roses, Doors & Oasis and you can imagine the carnage.
The old image of cheesey wedding discos is one that we are firmly trying to put to bed. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of Abba & Billy Ocean if that’s your thing but there’s also nothing wrong with a dance & R’n’B do or a punk ‘n’ rock one either. Maybe a mixture of all 3? Hell, that’d be hard work 😉
