Wedding Band chesterCheshire wedding band Slinky have been performing their renditions of the hottest rock and pop anthems across the UK since forming in 2003. The band consists of four male members including Damien Williams on drums, Nick Studholme on guitar, producer / bassist Aaron Croxford and lead singer Stuart Brierley, and the foursome have made a name for themselves across Manchester, Liverpool and Merseyside.
Catering for weddings, functions, parties and events in their local area is now second na-ture to Slinky, quoted recently in a client review as “the highlight of our wedding day.” The band are used to hearing this kind of feedback, and say they are not happy unless every single review is positive. Bassist Croxford notes, “This is not just our career, it is our pas-sion. We want to make people’s wedding or party or festival the absolute best it can be – music plays a huge part of any event’s success so we ensure that our clients are so happy they will have no doubts about booking us again or recommending us to friends.”
The band travel across the entire country, performing at festivals in Northern Ireland and corporate events in Edinburgh and London on a regular basis, which is a dream come true for lead singer Brierley. “I always knew I wanted to travel with my music career – staying in the local area is great at first because your community really get to know and support you, but it gets to a point where you want to take your sound across the country and abroad – I am so pleased about the success we are having across Europe. It’s quite rare that clients book musicians perform overseas but we’ve been having a lot of enquiries.”
Recent clients Max and Tania Pipperton of Birmingham, Midlands, state, “Slinky played at our wedding in January and were absolutely fantastic. They played a really rocky version of our favourite Al Green song which was our first dance – it was so cool to have a totally unique arrangement that really suits our personalities – we were thrilled. You wouldn’t get that anywhere else!”
Typically you’ll hear the band playing hits from The Who, Oasis, Stevie Wonder, Blur and Paolo Nutini to name a few but if you want to book Slinky for a gig or wedding near you, it can be arranged for the band to learn and rehearse any song of your choice, which is ex-actly what Mr. and Mrs. Pipperton arranged for their special day. No matter how obscure a track may be, Slinky can make it happen for you, and can also provide a variety of alterna-tive acoustic sets. The lineup and repertoire is entirely customisable to suit your individual needs and can be arranged by contacting the band for pricing information and a quote.
