We had a huge amount of fun playing for Sam and Andy on Friday 28th February 2014 at the Fredricks Hotel and Spa in Maidenhead. Despite being based not more than 8 miles away we have never played at this venue before, although strangely we are already booked there twice this year!? Strange how these dates and locations work. A couple of years ago nearly every wedding we played was in the lovely rural areas just to the South and West of Reading – Aldermaston, Swallowfield, Burghfield, Mortimer and places like them, and we must have driven to J11 of the M4 a thousand times! There are so many beautiful and historic wedding venues in that area, so it’s not surprising really.
The Fredricks Hotel is a cracking venue and both I and the rest band commented how well presented it was. We didn’t get to see too much of the rest of the grounds but the function room we were in was a good size with plenty of space to set up. The hotel was also very band friendly, we were left to get on with our jobs with no interruptions or complications, and found the staff to be very helpful. Wedding coordinator Alix was a huge help in the run up to the wedding too.
Sam and Andy booked our Gold Package allowing us to play for 2 x 60 mins sets as well as provide the disco. Both the happy couple and the audience were a huge amount of fun and we had a great fun gig. Sam commented
Thanks Graeme. You were awesome, literally everyone said how fantastic you and the band were and how you made it a fab party. We will leave some feedback for you when we get back x
