Recommendations are by far the best way to find a good wedding band and are the next best thing to actually seeing them live for yourselves. The Redfords wedding band are very busy this coming year and find it difficult to schedule public performances for potential clients so place a high value on unsolicited recommendations.
Quite a late set up for this wedding as the dancing took place in the same room as the Wedding breakfast and there was insufficient room to go with both. Great Fosters a Elizabethan fully oak panelled Hotel looks absolutely great by night,
2010 was a mixed bag for music. Trend setters raved about new and exciting genres like Dubstep and Chiptune but these were largely ignored in favour of songs we actually like. It was a year of Ga Ga and Justin Bieber, Cheryl Cole and The Wanted. We saw the return of Robbie to Take That and the rise of Rihanna to the top of the single charts sales. The Redfords have seen many of these 2010 songs make it on to our set list some are keepers some have already gone.
The iPad, in combination with three apps Softalk’s Autocue, Evernote and Tabs has truly transformed the way I approach gigs by allowing me to read, in real time, scrolling lyrics and chords. The nearest alternative a conventional bulky autocue would cost hundreds and more importantly mean yet another flight case to load in and out. Guitar toolkit and Amplitube are another two apps ideal for dressing room preparations and with the help of an iRig from ik multimedia we are able to tune, check chords, record and rehearse sounds. Dropbox with its cloud computing technology enables us to swap and edit set lists and lyrics not to mention photos and song demos.
A fairly early start for our very first Wedding band performance at a New Years Eve wedding! It was a relatively short and pleasant run down to the lovely East Sussex village of Forest Row. The wedding was staged in the Ashstead House school.. We believe Emily was a pupil here
