I usually don't write up private gigs but this one was something special. No names. We were booked to play a 50th birthday and it looked like much fun for some very friendly people. Just don't play too loud, don't scratch the lovely, restored timber floor. An afternoon party gig, playing 3-6pm, pleasant but not unusual. But then it was more. We arrive to be told the hosts would be marrying at 4.30. They'd been together 18 years and had decided just 5 days before to marry. Lovely and touching. Much was outdoor, in the back garden, which we saw through a window, but bands are always something special at a party. Then the announcement to many surprised guests, then the wedding. Then getting cold and the guests moved indoors and we played more funky. All a great pleasure. Great thanks to our unnamed hosts and our best wishes. Thanks to N and M for including us in your wonderful day!
Tilt Trio played for a private 50th birthday that ended as a last-minute-announced wedding. A thrill and quite touching.
