Night of Nostalgia at cabaret in Carmarthen

This weekend the club house of Carmarthen Golf Cub was decorated 1940’s style as the seniors hosted their eagerly awaited “1940’s Blitz Themed Night” cabaret in Carmarthen.

As well as enjoying a sumptuous three course meal,1st Call Entertainment’s
duo, Double Impact were on hand to entertain.

They took guests on a nostalgic musical trip back to the 1940’s with a selection of songs which helped win the war!

From emotionally charged numbers such as ‘We’ll meet again, Berkeley Square and Lovely weekend to popular singalong songs like ‘The Lambeth walk’ and
‘Pack up your troubles’.

After much singing along and waving of flags the clock came forward to the present day and guests were invited to dance the night away to the duo’s fabulous musical party set.

It was certainly a night to be remembered and club members can now look forward to an exciting programme of social events throughout 2016.

Professional-party-band-400

As the summer nights are starting to draw in now is the time to be thinking about and booking your Christmas party entertainment in Bristol, Cardiff and the South West.

Bristol and South West based, 1st Call Entertainment comment that “…still by far the most popular choice for a Christmas party is a good quality live party band ”

A professional party band will perform two one hour musical sets offering value for money and guaranteeing to have your guests up dancing the night away.

The most requested party band is one which performs an extensive mix of classic pop/ dance songs from the different decades, 1960s to the present day.

Alternatively you can request and book a band that focus on a particular pop music style such as disco, motown, reggae or soul !

Another very popular option is to book a tribute band, a group which looks like and performs the greatest hits of a particular famous band.

Party-Band-Slider-300x100You can choose a tribute to a classic band like for example, The Beatles, Beach Boys or Bee Gees or a more current chart act such as Take That or One Direction.

We thoought we would share some of the venues and bands that we have visited in the past few months. Maybe give you some ideas, if you are planning an event in the city.

A view that is difficult to steel your eyes from.

avon-gorge-4x3 One of the most dramatic venues in the City of Bristol is the Avon Gorge Hotel in Clifton.

This historic hotel offers unparalleled views of Brunel’s Grade One listed Clifton Suspension Bridge, said to be one of the worlds greatest bridges.

Boasting a fantastic panorama, the hotel is also in a very central position for both business and person events alike, with Bristol CSteel-band-4x3ity Centre within walking distance.

Back in the summer we had our Caribbean Steel Band playing for Ernst & Young’s Summer Ball. The guests were entertained in authentic Caribbean style, adding that perfect atmosphere to the summer night.

The Caribbean Band really added the summer atmosphere.

A venue that doesn’t clown around.

circomedia-portland If you want a venue with a difference, as Sophie did for her 40th Birthday Party. Circomedia in Portland Place is certainly different.

Winning the Hudson Heritage Award for its adaptive reuse of space, we create tailored events in our unique central Bristol home at Grade 1 listed, St Paul’s Church in Portland Square from conferences to weddings, birthday parties to award ceremonies. Hirers can choose either to Party-Band-4x3run events themselves (‘dry hire’) or to put all of the planning and preparations into the hands of Circomedia’s highly- experienced in-house event management team.

Our Perfect Party Band were on hand to entertain Sophie’s guests as they danced the night away in this fantastic venue. There was not a clown in sight, however.

Well not at that point anyway.

A right royal venue.

Marriott-royal-4x3If it is elegance you require, there is no finer venue in our opinion, than the Marriott Royal in the centre of Bristol.

With a fabulous location next to Bristol Cathedral and the historic waterfront, the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel offers ideal accommodations for enjoying England’s southwestern charm. From the moment you arrive, the Victorian-style hotel captivates you with polished marble, warm mahogany and gleaming brass. Spaciousstringquartet rooms offer comfortable furnishings, 24-hour room service, and large work areas with high-speed Internet.

For dinner, the newly refurbished Walters Restaurant, offering locally sourced regional flavours from the South West.

We added a touch of class to an event with our Classical/Jazz trio.

Bride Bubbles about not too cheesy wedding band in Cheddar, Somerset

Wedding band-in-CheddarHere is a lovely testimonial form one of our clients from Cheddar, Somerset

Hi Julian and Phil

We can’t begin to tell you just how brilliant your wedding band are! We hired them for our outdoor wedding party which had over 100 guests ranging from small children to great-grannies and the band got everyone dancing. In advance of the event, lead singer Phil took the time to discuss the play list and the band went out of their way to put together two sets which included all of our favourite music, even learning new tracks so that the evening meant even more to us. The band are friendly, punctual, professional, they fit right in to our event – it was like having friends playing for us, which made our party really special. We would definitely recommend the Wonderful Wedding band and are hoping for an excuse in the near future so we can book them again.
