Last minute illness strikes! The night before the event, our amazing (legally-contracted to use that adjective) boss, Yew Han fell ill. Not to worry though, as the red pants clan have a way of working their way across the globe and we were able to recruit one of our London based players, Edu.
We (Alex, Sam and Dave) made the 4 hour drive to the Royal Victoria Docks in London in the Funtime Van without Yew Han (boohoo!) to meet fantastic keys player, Edu Bisogno. It certainly was one of the more unusual venues that we have performed at, with some pretty awesome views, such as the O2 Arena!
So we got the equipment set up quickly ready to entertain the guests.
Our first performance was during dinner as The Funtime Frankies also provided an acoustic duo set on guitar & keys, which Sam and Edu performed beautifully.
Here is little video snippet of them in action!
Many thanks to the venue at this point for providing us with something to eat! The only real way to a function band’s player’s heart is with hot food. After our meal (and the guests’ too), we were all set and ready to go with our high energy, burger-fuelled set!
As we love our job, we decided to perform one long set as the audience loved to party so much! Many thanks for KDM Events for recommending us to be the corporate band for this event and a special thanks to Elanco Animal Heath for having us! They do a wonderful job providing products and services to enhance animal health, wellness and performance. It was a pleasure and an honour to play for you.
