Last saturday we had the wonderful fortune of rocking Ben and Bec's wedding at the Priors Tithe Barn, Brockworth. Not only was this a stunning location, but the drive cross country from the M40, on the most glorious day, was one of the best.
Obviously, the barn isn't that little hut in the middle, we'd be hard pushed to rock in there - this is just the garden!
We had some time to kill before setting up - so celebrated Bones' birthday with cake and beer and then settled down in the sun with our new mate - Barnaby the Barn Cat (we don't know if that's his name...we don't even know if he was a barn cat - but for that day, in our minds, he was...and he seemed happy to be!)
Turns out Gab's not really a cat fan - or maybe he is...but he likes siestas more...
When we finally set up and sound-checked it was most definitely party time...and party they did! Mr and Mrs Fowkes have some lively friends who love a good dance...and we loved them for it!

The encore was a joint effort with a wedding guest who insisted he would 'blow me out of the ball park' with it! So we duetted the verses and our expectations of a drunken bellows were certainly not met! The dude indeed had a voice! Frankly, Boots wished she'd known that earlier - she could have talen a few songs off!
All in all, it was a lovely evening and many congratulations to Ben and Becs, who's table-plan was inspired!
We are into party season now with another wedding to rock tomorrow, then we're back at Venn Street Records on Friday with Benjamin Bloom on keys - so come down and rock out with us...it's gonna be a good one!
