Here is the link for the full interview… http://www.weddingideasmag.com/party-like-the-a-list-with-our-celeb-style-wedding-entertainment-tips/
We were also asked our opinion on hints and tips for the day and trends for music at weddings during 2013. Here is an excerpt from the original interview….
Kieran from Rock My Reception is the man to ask about what was hot in 2013 and what’s going to be hot in 2014, his acoustic duo Rock My Reception have played a whole variety of weddings up and down the U.K this year and there are few wedding musicians in the U.K in as much demand as Rock My Reception. We took the opportunity to tap into his experience and ask what trends we expect to see in 2014?
“We have found live music during the drinks reception has been really popular in during 2013. Live music during the afternoon has often been over-looked in the past but last year it really caught on and people really do see it as a ‘Wow’ factor which can set the tone for the day, plus it’s always a good ice-breaker and a contrast after the formalities of the ceremony. You really feel the tension lift as everyone has that first glass of Champagne and the music becomes the sound track to the day ““With artists like Jake Bugg now in the public domain and various other acoustic singer/songwriters people love tapping their feet to familiar tunes during the afternoon drinks”“We have been inundated with wedding couples wanting us to play their first dance for 2014. Romantic hits like Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol are always a favorite for loved up couples also up-beat songs such as ‘It Must Be Love’ by Madness are all timeless classics for the first dance”
