We arrive at a venue that wouldn’t usually welcome our hairy metal sort, people are crying (we hope in joy) and Legendary DJ Si Fox is sitting casually in a Ford Mondeo, absorbing his powers from deep within the Moorland hills!
We load into our designated area, we’re told what not to block and to watch out for the kids.
In short, before we even have chance to eye-up the cake, Rob has misplaced his Pedals, we smash a lighting set and our new 6K PA refuses to kick in - resulting in 2 trips back to the studio and pushing our set back by 45 minutes. Luckily, Nick had started on the rum. As I jumped back in the van he worked his charm and a very understanding newly-wed was happy for us to play a little later than planned.
We play, we do okay and have fun. It’s hot. Rob is on form, Nick can’t hear anything because of the last minute PA changes and both my guitars keep de-tuning under the heat. Although it seemed our performance was welcomed as a very odd form of background entertainment, there were 3 children at the front, head-banging; absorbing the whole experience. The bride and groom were happy and we want to sincerely thank them for letting us be a part of the special day
