Wedding Jazz and Swing at Grittleton House

The Hipcats took their swinging jazz quartet to Grittleton House for a fabulous wedding on 3rd June.  Amongst the classic jazz and swing there was also a request for songs from Michael Bublé and the band were happy to oblige, including the first dance which was the beautiful You and I (written by Stevie Wonder) - this was brilliantly sung by guest, Nathaniel Kelly who joined the band for this special song.  He wasn't the only talented performer around as West End and Broadway star Laura Kelly (Mary Poppins amongst other things) also had a great time enjoying the music with the rest of the guests.

The whole day and evening was brilliantly organised and the bride and groom had a fabulous day at a fabulous venue.  More information on the band at http://www.thehipcats.co.uk/ - as seen on http://www.bristolandbathjazz.co.uk/ and http://www.bristolandbathweddings.co.uk/

Waitrose jazz band in Warminster

Stardust Music were chosen by Waitrose to be their jazz band for the big Jubilee event in Warminster on Sunday 3rd June.  The band greeted the crowds as they entered the park with a mix of upbeat swing-jazz and even the occasional showers didn't dampen spirits.

An 'awesome' band said one of the Waitrose representatives at the event and the families who were dancing along to the band certainly seemed to agree.

A jazzy wedding on the farm

Huntstile Organic Farm in Somerset provided the unique setting for Abi and Mark's wedding.  They chose The Hipcats quartet of double bass, drums, keyboards and vocals for music in the evening and had a special request for The Love Cats by The Cure for the first dance.  The band were happy to learn it for them and what a great first dance it was!

The music for the rest of the evening was a mix of jazz, swing, latin and funk which got everyone up dancing, whether they were 8, 28 or 88.  A brilliant night enjoyed as much by the band as by the guests.

Wick Wedding Jazz

The Hipcats were invited by Izzy and Ferdy to join them at their wedding at Wick Farm near Bath, Wiltshire on 2nd June.  The bride and groom had chosen a trio of double bass, keyboards and vocals to play at their drinks reception outside and the band found a great spot under the tree on the terrace.  The classic and cool music went well with the vintage Porsche which brought the happy couple to the venue and the weather was just right for drinks and canapés.

Keyboard player, Phil, from The Hipcats stayed on in the evening to provide cocktail piano in the bar area and he played a mix of classic jazz and romantic tunes from the 1920s through to the present day.  Sophisticated and cool.  More information at www.TheHipcats.co.uk/wiltshire
