We have a few musical treats for visitors to the event including Mark James who will be joining us and performing on Sunday 20th April (the second day of the event). Mark is a solo acoustic musician and performs at weddings, parties, local bars, restaurants and corporate events. Mark has played small house party gatherings, private parties in marquees, corporate shop promotions, and in front of 4000 people at the 2012 Grand National at Aintree racecourse in Liverpool!
Here's Mark with his advice on choosing a wedding or function band...
When choosing an artist for your function make sure you know exactly what type of music they play. At your wedding or function there will be guests from all walks of life, all backgrounds, all ages from kids to old rock and rollers .
The artist must then "read" the audience and tailor the set of songs to his gathered crowd. A bit of rock and roll for Gran, some old school 90's Britpop for the fellas, some 80's classics for the Aunties on the dancefloor and not forgetting a fun song from Cbeebies for the little ones!
I always play a whole range of songs from every decade and every genre then everyone will be happy and content . . .Won't they?!
Here's Mark performing one of my favourite tracks - Sit Down by James
