Slinky’s August Journal

Wow what a busy August we are having – it may be holiday time for a lot of people, but it is definitely our busiest time of year. We will be performing at 9 weddings this month. We have already been to South Wales where we had 2 weddings back to back, in Bridgend and Brecon (we camped, thankfully the weather was kind), North Wales, Ramsbottom, Derby and Southport and still have Peckforton and Cumbria and back down to Monmouthsire!

A Look at Celebrity Parties With Slinky!

As a premier wedding, and corporate event band, we get to attend a lot of great parties! But how do the rich and famous celebrate? This week we’re looking at some of the wildest, craziest and extravagant parties thrown by celebrities.

Elton Johns 50th Birthday

It’s no surprise that Elton is appearing in this list. Extravagant, flamboyant and worth a fortune, you would expect him to celebrate his 50th in style wouldn’t you. With over 500 guests and an outfit that cost no less than £70,000 (yes, that’s right) there was no expense spared. Elton even had to hire an extra large vehicle, just to fit his huge wig in!

Keeping The Repertoire Fresh!

We have been spending a lot of time at Slinky HQ over the past few weeks, adding some great new tracks to our repertoire. As a function band we always need to make sure that we are up to speed on all the latest songs which we know our clients will love. Sometimes we wait to see which tracks do well in the charts, and sometimes we just know and can get onto rehearsing it right away. A good example of this is Uptown Funk. We knew this was a Slinky track as soon as we heard it and we couldn’t wait to get playing it! While keeping up to date with the latest music is vital, we are also constantly adding more vintage tracks to our armoury too. Recently we have gone a bit 80s with Gold, Rio, and Don’t You Forget About Me. One we are really enjoying in rehearsals is Royal Bloods Little Monster.
