We were delighted to play for 2 lovely couples over the weekend of 27th and 28th April 2012. Emma & Steve and Toni & Andi both tied the knot in style and both had absolutely awesome weddings. These were our fist gigs back following a month’s break due to the birth of Graeme’s second son, and what a return it was. Playing people’s weddings is a major responsibility that we do not take lightly, we thank both couples very much for having us and we hope married life is treating you well. Thank you to Andi and Toni for getting us to learn the Foo Fighters Everlong as well, that is staying firmly in our set! Here are some !daft! pics from the respective weddings.

There are some songs that rightly or wrongly have stood the test of time and feature heavily today in most cover band’s kit bag of tunes. They may not see the lights of the stage at every gig but secretly we know ‘em. And you know we know ‘em. In fact it’s almost a dead cert that they’ll make an appearance at a handful of gigs each year, in some cases almost every gig. They are great for weddings and parties and generally aiding the vocal get together of a large audience. Are they the coolest songs in the world? Probably not. Are they the most technically challenging and engaging to play? Not really. But here is the !daft! take on 10 songs every rock/pop party cover band should know and expect to play, if not for their own, then at least for the audience’s enjoyment. Which after all is slightly more important.
Ever heard the term “sound limiter”? Our wedding and party clients often ask us what one is and that’s only IF they have been told that their venue has one, or been knowledgeable enough to ask. Checking whether your wedding venue has a sound limiter is something you should do early in the planning process, you will be investing months organising your perfect day and spending thousands of pounds making sure every tiny detail is taken care of… but have you ensured that these electro-jobsworths aren’t sat there ready to cause unexpected havoc at your big day?
