A Wedding at The Buckinghamshire Golf Club

A fantastic wedding at a wonderful wedding venue – The Buckinghamshire Golf Club

Planning the perfect wedding at The Buckinghamshire Golf Club, Denham is not an easy thing to do. There are so many aspects to consider and people to please. It’s no surprise that some can find it all a bit overwhelming.

Over the years !daft! has had the opportunity to work with hundreds of brides and grooms to help them plan their perfect wedding entertainment but this time round Sophie & Billy knew exactly what they wanted, and it wasn’t “second best”.

The Buckinghamshire Golf Club Wedding & Party Entertainment Package

From the very start Sophie and Billy knew they wanted a party. Not just any party but a BIG party.

After a long day of ceremonies and formalities they wanted to be able to let their hair down and enjoy time with their friends and family on the dance floor. But there was no compromise to be made on quality so to ensure they had the very best live entertainment for their wedding at The Buckinghamshire Golf Club, they booked our hugely popular wedding Gold Package.

The Gold Package remains one of our most popular live wedding entertainment booking packages because it provides a whopping 2 x 60 mins live sets of rock, pop & indie covers as well as our professional wedding DJ service.

“We had the best night ever, literally, the best wedding I have been to with a band.”

The Buckinghamshire Golf Club Wedding Marquee

The Buckinghamshire Golf Club provided a stunning location for a wedding reception along with superb facilities. You can find the Marquee set alongside beautiful lakes and lush, rich greens making the for a visually stunning sight. Wedding and event staff had decorated the marquee beautifully with 3 hanging chandeliers, white LED dance floor, exquisite tableware, well-stocked bar and us, the band, all in the same room.

Marquee weddings work particularly well because they keep everyone together. Sometimes it can be frustrating when all your guests are spread out across various rooms and locations. Marquees focus all your guests and activities into one general area which helps keep momentum and spirits up.

“I couldn’t have asked for better, I’m so glad I made the right choice.”

VIth form Leaver’s Ball Party Band

Who ever said that music has boundaries? Or that it can only be enjoyed by a certain few? Not us. That’s for sure. And certainly not the VIth form leavers ball we performed for recently.

One of the best things about !daft! is that our music and entertainment value has no limits and no one is restricted from enjoying what we do. It’s amazing how we can have a fun-filled night for a 60th or 70th birthday but also head down the other end of the age scale to party with a 18-20 year olds.

We love the fact that music doesn’t speak in terms of limits but instead seeks to cross age ranges and cultures to create unification and happiness.

The people featured in this video are VIth form school leavers who chose !daft! to provide the entertainment for their leavers ball. And what a night it was!

The young ladies all looked beautiful and radiant whilst the gentleman attired themselves in black tie formalwear, many, we imagine, for the first time. But boy did they all make an effort.

Joe Fryd Swing Singer

The evening started with arrival cocktails to the backdrop of a fantastic live set from solo performer Joe Fryd.

Joe is an outstanding swing singer as well as a master at the many contemporary pop songs he performed. During his set the young audience couldn’t resist getting up to dance with him, which was fantastic to see and gave us the impression we were in for a great night later on! Joe did a fantastic job and it was a delight to work with him. Be sure to check Joe out at http://www.joefryd.co.uk and https://www.facebook.com/Joe-Fryd-Singer-and-Entertainer-212548778773805

VIth Form Student Ball Live party band & DJ

Following a fine 3 course meal !daft! turned up the energy with our upbeat disco soon followed by our first set.

During the first set we took the audience on a journey through decades of hits and anthems, particularly as they had shown such a huge amount of love for Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ – so we made sure to include this in the set. Our main contact for this booking also expressed a love for the Killer’s Mr. Brightside, so we made that the soundtrack to their video.

The staff have never seen so many of the students stuck to the dance floor, so bravo!!

Following the impressive fireworks at the end of the night the band played their second set which went down an absolute storm. In order to make sure there is variety and interest in what the band is playing we make sure to vary things up a bit and the second set was full of its usual contemporary party hits and anthems.

We thoroughly enjoyed playing for the VIth formers and we hope we get to see the next round next year!

Caroline & Brett Wedding at Magnolia Park

Huge congratulations to Caroline & Brett who held their wedding celebration at Magnolia Park, High Wycombe, and who booked us to provide their entertainment.

Bands have no better weddings to play than the ones with fun, friendly and up-for-it people. It makes for a great night all round when the crowd are ready to let their hair down. Thankfully, Caroline & Brett’s friends and family had this all in abundance.

Their wedding was booked in mid-2016 which ensured the date was free in our diary and secured it for them nice and early.

It also gave the Caroline and Brett lots of time to have all the necessary conversations with us to ensure we planned correctly for the event.

To The Future!

We’d like to say a heartfelt thanks to Caroline & Brett for booking us, we thoroughly enjoyed the wedding party and we hope to see you and your guests again soon!

Burnham Park Hall Festival 2017

Festival Fun in the Sun for all the family

The sun has set on this year’s Burnham Park Hall Festival, and oh my, what a success it was!

Only in its second year, the festival hosted 9 local bands throughout the day.

  • It’s a Swing Thing
  • Bitteroot
  • The PFJ
  • Dacoda
  • Anna Nightingale
  • D A W N
  • Dan Pryde
  • The Blarney Pilgrims
  • !daft!

In addition you could chill out in the hall’s secluded, sun-trap courtyard with a variety of acoustic soloists, duo and trios.

Thankfully, given the nature of the heat on the day, the festival has a food and drink angle to it too. For the peckish there was selection of food vendors including an incredible African street food stall.

For the thirsty, as most seemed to be, strangely, there were a range of Rebellion ales from the local Marlow Brewery and a perfectly-pitched Pimms & Prosecco tent for the ladies.

A Summer scorcher

The event basked in the ridiculous glory of the British summer peaking at around 32°C. For events like this it is nice to have a dry day, great to have a warm day but it was something else to have had a day like we had. I am not sure we will ever be that lucky again and it made all the difference.

Thousands Packed the Park

Going off the first year the attendance this year was through the roof. Estimates are that around 3500 people visited, many with children and most sticking around for most, if not all, of the day.

Festival goer Janice Young said:

“This was my first music festival and i had a fantastic time thank you to all the acts and the organisers and security I’m definitely going again next year.”

What We Provided

We were delighted to have provided our Live Music Festivals & Media package to Burnham Park Hall. This included:

  • A headline performance from !daft!
  • Line Array PA system
  • Sound engineer & stage manager
  • Videography
  • Photography

!daft! are truly delighted to have been part of this amazing event and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
