Down for the Count at Nick and Erin's Wedding

On Friday 19th August, we performed at Nick and Erin's wedding reception at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.  Nick is a friend of Mike's from university - whose trademark greeting was to pick Mike up and turn him upside down (see the photo below for the general idea) - whilst three of us in the band know Erin's sister Rachel from UCL.

It's always lovely playing for people we know - for one thing, it means we are almost guaranteed a friendly audience, which was certainly the case this time round.  We were also extremely well looked after and well fed - which always seems to make us play better!

Nick and Erin are fantastic ballroom dancers, and performed a brilliant routine to Natalie Cole's "This Will Be An Everlasting Love" for their first dance.  There is a video of them and the band in action here - thanks to Declan at Etch for the glowing review and absolutely wonderful photos and videos.
