Wedding Band Entertainment Cotswolds

By |October 9th, 2012|

The Wedding reception of Jane and Colin took place in the Westwood Centre in Jane's home of Northleach Gloucestershire which is a quaint Cotswold village. Recently built, the centre lies on the edge of the village and is surrounded by screen gardens which lend themselves as ideal for a drinks reception. The main hall had been transformed for the reception by the inclusion marquee inner shroud which lowered the tall ceiling and made the room look beautiful. Guests were dressed in evening attire (an american influence I believe) which gave a party atmosphere to the proceedings. Jane and Colin had chosen not to have a first special dance, instead the Redfords later performed Sweet Child of Mine by Guns N' Roses.

Wendy and Roy, Oakwood House, Maidstone, Kent, Ladies Night band

By |April 4th, 2011|

First time for The Redfords at Oakwood House in Maidstone Kent and what a gem it is !!! Sitting in it's own well established grounds it was almost certainly built around 1870. Once the private residence of Lewis and Mary Wigan and their five children. Having for many years been used as an annex for various schools the decision was taken to refurbish the house for use as a conference centre. Still owned by Kent County Council today Oakwood House retains much of it's Victorian splendor which is tastefully combined with modern function facilities. It is now a popular venue for Weddings offering a full service to couples looking for a beautiful setting for their special day.

Recommending The Redfords Wedding Band

By |January 25th, 2011|

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.

Best Music of 2010, The Redfords, Wedding band.

By |January 19th, 2011|

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.

iPad for live music, lyrics and chords.

By |January 14th, 2011|

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.
