I hope you enjoyed a great Christmas and Santa was kind for your good behaviour throughout 2019. I am looking forward to another year of gigs and the diary is getting pretty full already.
A Busy December
It was great to have a break between Christmas and New Year's Eve, although the lead-up to Christmas was busier than ever.
Gigs included the Joe Ringer Christmas Spectacular at Norwich Playhouse and the Pavilion Theatre, duo gigs on my acoustic guitar with Claire Barker, other Christmas themed gigs in various venues and another fantastic set of gigs at the Mercure Hotel with the Claire Barker Band.
We all had a great time playing all the Christmas parties and on New Year's Eve at the Mercure Hotel. The dance floor was full every night and everyone was certainly in a festive mood.
If you missed the fun at the Mercure Hotel this year, the great news is that we will be back there again next December to make more memorable Christmas parties.
Did You Get Engaged?
Was there a marriage proposal over the Christmas holidays? Christmas and New Year's Eve are very popular times for people to pop the question.
Music is a huge part of any wedding day and can really make the day extra special. In planning a wedding, the evening is usually the main consideration when it comes to music, but there are so many other options:
- Guests arriving at the church
- Walking down the aisle - the guitar is a great alternative to an organ
- The signing of the register
- Exit music
- Drinks reception
- During photos - whilst individual guests are taken away for photos, music can entertain other guests
- Background music during the Wedding Breakfast
- A band in the evening to dance the night away!
If you need advice when choosing music, please get in touch and I can put together the perfect package, or just give you some ideas.
Many of the gigs I play are weddings or private functions, although I often play public gigs which I list on my public gigs page.
If you want to come and join the fun with the Claire Barker Band, enjoy relaxing acoustic songs with my duo with Claire or as a solo guitarist, or if you fancy an evening of jazz, hopefully, I will see you at a gig sometime soon.
