Following in Some Big Footsteps
Wednesday 23rd May 2018
What do the following all have in common with your favourite Hampshire Wedding and Party Band, A-List:
Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Orson Welles, Jimmy Page, Diego Maradona, Michael Jackson, Buzz Aldrin...and Kermit the Frog?
The answer (of course) is they’ve all performed, or made a special appearance at the prestigious Chambers at Oxford Union.
Hired by Phillip to perform for his 50th birthday celebrations, we were all blown away by the history of the building - which is proudly shown off with countless photos of their famous guests.
At this time of year we’re predominantly booked as a wedding band in Hampshire, Surrey and surrounding areas, so it’s always a nice change of pace to perform for a birthday; even more so when the venue is steeped in history and has hosted some of the most important figures of the 20th and 21st century, and now A-List!
Phillip also hired us to perform an acoustic live lounge style daytime set in the Oxford Union Library - which in itself was out of the ordinary for us. These are always a great addition, and help create a fun atmosphere as guests are arriving. Here’s the setup we use for these sets in the Library:
As the night drew in on a beautiful, warm day, Phillip and his friends joined us in the Chambers for some upbeat music and a boogie.
With so much sun coming through the large windows, it was hard to get a decent photo of our setup in the room, but enjoy this comparison with Ronald Reagan’s appearance in the same room back in 1992 nonetheless!
Wedding season is well and truly upon us now, with an extremely busy Summer ahead for team A-List. 2019 is already beginning to fill up, so if you’re looking for the ultimate wedding entertainment, please contact the guys at Tailored Entertainment NOW.
