Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our clients and fellow suppliers! 2015 was a great year for us with lots of lovely gigs around the country travelled to in our trusty van wagon. Looking forward to getting back on the road this summer!

 

We are very excited about what 2016 holds for us and with wedding season just around the corner we are preparing to head into rehearsals where we will work on some new material to add into the set. We’re really looking forward to getting a jam of all our new tune ideas! Prepare for disco. Lots of disco!

 

Up and coming events include the Edinburgh Wedding Fair at The Corn Exchange on the 5th & 6th of March where we’ll be in our usual spot in the central corridor at stand 40. We’ll have songs to listen to, live videos of us at wedding gigs to watch, set lists to view and Jenni on hand to chat and answer any questions you may have. We’ll also be running 10% off all bookings made through the fair for all you bargain hunters!

 

June is the month of school leavers dances and we are lucky enough to be playing two local mid-week gigs for the pupils of George Heriots and George Watsons on their party nights to celebrate working so hard. Its always a real pleasure playing for the kids and is up there in our favourite gigs list!

 

We’re heavily booked right up to November where we’ll take a few weeks off before the madness of Xmas residencies start. Did I just mention Xmas in February?? Time to get back to focusing on the impending wedding season me thinks!

Hello Happy Couples! It’s been an exciting winter for us all at TJGB HQ with mini band members being born, gigs down south & wedding fairs but we’re back on track for a busy wedding season and can’t wait to see you all.

January saw us down in Gloucestershire for a beautiful winter wedding in Berkeley Castle. The castle itself is one of the nicest venues we’ve played and the crowd had some of the best ceilidh dancers we’ve seen in a while! Here’s a pic from the stage of a huge Dashing White Sergeant.

March kept us local in two of our most loved locations, Houston House and The Byre at Inchyra. We were also really pleased to see some of our favourite venues that we are lucky enough to play regularly featured in a recent on-line article. The review showed some of the cool & quirky places in Scotland to get married and really brought home how lucky we are to have such great venues on our doorstep and also how lucky we are that we get to play at them! Here’s a link the article.

Now we find ourselves in full swing of 2015 wedding season so we’ll sign off by saying happy planning to all our lovely couples that are tying the knot this summer. We’ll see you at the party!

Perfect Venue?

I’ve been thinking…

What was once considered unusual for a wedding venue, old barns on family farms and yurts that haven’t seen the light of day since Glasto in 1968 are now well travelled on the map of desired wedding venues. Now its hot air balloons & deep sea diving with sharks that’s considered slightly unusual. Personally, I still love an old rickety barn in a field wrapped within an inch of its life in ivy and wild flowers – by hey, I’m a sixties chick trapped with an eighties birthday. Every year the band & I travel the length of the country to play at weddings and are always pleasantly surprised at peoples choices. Spooky Gothic castles, giant tipi’s, old church ruins within an open marquee, circus big tops – you name it we’ve played it! After reading this wee feature in The Guardian recently we’re curious to know, where have you chosen to celebrate your nuptials and what’s the strangest place you have had the pleasure to attend?!
