We returned to play at yet another Ball at Westonbirt School – this time, a Christmas Ball.
We were welcomed by the client, David , into the most opulent and magical Christmas setting. And there was a surprise in store for all! More about that later! The entire private school was decorated with magical Christmas decorations inc the enormous Christmas Tree in the Great Hall. Guests enjoyed a succulent 4-course festival meal, followed by hours of dancing to Firefly.
And now for the surprise! Guests were asked to step outside before dinner and what did they hear? They heard sleigh bells ringing! Why? Because far, far away in the distance, two beautiful animals with horns came rattling down the long driveway with their owners – reindeer! Yes, two gorgeous reindeer came to visit us all for an incredible and magical surprise! You’ll see a picture of the adorable pair called Dancer and Prancer! Suzy had massive cuddles with them as she’s animal mad and she even invited them on stage with her! Needless to say, they politely declined but cuddles were had by all guests and it truly was a wonderful start to the Christmas Holidays!
We love playing at Christmas Balls and school functions and we can now add the Westonbirt School Christmas Ball to our very long list of school function gigs in South West England, the Midlands, Somerset and Gloucestershire, inc for Millfield Senior School.
In the band for this amazing School Christmas Ball were Suzy J on lead vocals, Paul Hardy on keyboards, Martyn Alsop on drums and vocals, Superman Dave on bass guitar and Dave Miles on lead guitar and vocals. Sound was provided by our excellent sound engineer, Chads Chadbury, who dressed for the occasion as he always does in a DJ. We played a ton of songs and the dance floor was packed. The setlist included Christmas songs Mariah Carey, Shakin’ Stevens, Slade and other songs by Guns n Roses, The Killers, Bon Jovi, Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Jess Glynne, Sia, Avicii, Chic, Abba and many more!
Christmas Balls are such fabulous events to play. We loved playing at Westonbirt School’s Christmas Ball. Contact us to find out more about booking Firefly band to perform at your Summer or Christmas Ball or school function.
