Wedding bands in Kent reschedule 2020

The onset of the Covid-19 virus and strict social lockdown rules has meant that wedding bands in Kent and the South East have had to reschedule all summer weddings.     The Redfords have found themselves with over 50  rescheduled weddings and a lot of time on their hands.

The Redfords lockdown sessions

To just stop playing was out of the question. So to keep up to speed we came up with the idea of the Redfords Lockdown Sessions. Requests for songs are being recorded remotely by each of us individually.  Matthew, our producer edits them together and we have put them on our Facebook page.  We have had lots of requests and are working through them as fast as we can. Let us know of any song that’s memorable or means something to you.

Tribute to NHS workers 


As we weren’t able to hold our biannual fundraising showcase due to lockdown. Instead the band decided to pay tribute to the NHS who are workers keeping us safe. After writing new lyrics to “The Best”  (Tina Turner) we asked  some of the wedding venues and suppliers to send in picture messages of support. To date our version of “The Best” has reached over 100,000 people and helped raise  money for NHS Foundation Trust dedicated COVID-19 Just Giving page. We are so thankful that the band and our families all remain healthy, and we can’t wait to see you and your families again soon.
