In a brand new feature, we're going to highlight one band every month that is busy lighting up venues across the country and proving a huge hit with our clients. First up, the jewel in the crown of the Kent Wedding Band scene - Festival Folk.
Having a Festival-Style Wedding Band for your big day has been a burning trend on the UK wedding scene for some time now, and it shows no sign of slowing any time soon. It's easy to see why, too. Bringing the easy going, effortlessly fun aura of a summer festival to your big day has huge appeal. However, no festival themed wedding is complete without a band taken straight from the main stage of Glastonbury or Bestival. That's were Festival Folk come in.
Made up of four of the south coast's finest session musicians, Festival Folk have been busy cultivating a reputation as one of the hottest function bands in Kent. Just take a look at a testimonial from one happy bride when they performed at her wedding at Bignor Park, Pulborough last month:
'I just wanted to feedback that the band were incredible on Saturday night, just perfect in every way. Please pass on our huge thanks. They played the best songs and all our guests didn't want them to stop. We will never forget that night'.
With feedback like that, it's really not a surprise that they are one of the busiest and best Wedding Bands Kent has to offer.
So what to expect from a night with Festival Folk? Well, their first set is a rootsy folk influenced joy ride, taking in a handful of your favourite contemporary pop songs, and lending them a barnstorming acoustic vibe. Resplendent with double bass, banjo, and soaring harmonies, it'll proves a huge hit with guests.
For their second set, the boys go electric with a blistering, hour long indie-rock finale. It's purpose built to send you straight back to those heady summer nights spent dancing into the early hours to your favourite festival headliners.
Their eclectic sound makes Festival Folk a great addition to a broad range of event sizes. They're folky sound and laid back look makes them the perfect act for a tee-pee or barn-based wedding. But they can fill the expectations set by much larger stages, too. They recently played a corporate event at Donnington Hall to a huge room and absolutely blew their audience away. Here's the event manager's thoughts on Festival Folk's performance:
'I just want to get in touch and say a HUGE thank you! The event was a great success and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Festival Folk! They were absolutely fantastic and fitted the atmosphere perfectly. We will definitely be booking them again!'
They've proven to be a fantastic addition to events of all shapes and sizes, proving they're mix of style makes them a perfect fit for a variety of bookings.
