Birmingham. The UKs’ second city. Often maligned, people who live here know that it has a lot going for it. With an industrial heritage second to none, we have a canal network which has seen substantial gentrification in the last two decades, hand in hand with a completely transformed city centre boasting a myriad of retail […]
In the words of Ray Davies, singer / songwriter of the Kinks, “It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world”. OK so he wasn’t singing about having to postpone wedding reception parties and live wedding band hire music and entertainment providers rescheduling their 2020 bookings due to Coronavirus, but 2020 is indeed a strange world.

Live band or DJ?
It’s the age-old question for wedding couples – should I hire a live band or a DJ? On the surface, it’s an open and shut case. If you’re a clubber, you hire a DJ. If you’re a gigger, you hire a live band. Horses for courses, right? DJs are for people who want […]

We love Dewsall Court. Nestling in the rural environs of Hereford, it’s a little outside the West Midlands, but as we performed there at the wedding reception of Emma and Matthew recently, we thought we’d mention it. Yes, we know this website is “Wedding band West Midlands”, but we do perform at a lot of […]
Wolverhampton wedding wonders
Wolverhampton has some hidden gems – you’d be surprised. There are some aesthetically pleasing and well laid out public parks and a sprinkling of almost-stately homes which hint at the citys’ pre-industrial past.
