The final run up to Christmas.

We had a fantastic run up to Christmas this year, with some amazing Christmas weddings in Central London, York and North Yorkshire, as well as some very glamorous Christmas parties.  It was great to finish our Christmas run at the fantastic Bibis Restaurant in Leeds, one of our very favourite public venues to play at.

Time for a little rest for us before a very glamorous NYE event in Chester.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Clare and Pauls Marquee wedding.

Here’s some stunning photos from Clare and Pauls amazing Sperry Tent wedding in Yorkshire.

This set up was amazing!  Beautiful rustic tables, stunning copper table ware mixed with an amazing cocktail bar surrounded by a cushioned chill out area.

Clare’s father was a professional jazz bass player so it was an absolute pleasure to be asked to provide the music for their special day.  This was clearly a very important area of the day for both the bride and groom and their families.

We had a blast.  Lots of dancing and laughter, who could ask for more!

All the best guys,

Katie and Nathan’s Yorkshire Barn wedding.

We are often booked for to play at weddings by people who have seen the band before at other events, which is fantastic and a real acknowledgement of our performances.

However for Katie and Nathan’s wedding, this is the 4th time that Katie’s family have booked The Mini Big Band for family events, which is truly amazing and a real honour and privilege for us!

A perfect summers day in the heart of Yorkshire in the most stunning venue, Bolton Abbey’s fantastic Tithe Barn.  Perfect.

All the best guys!

Sophies stunning Marquee wedding.

Sophie set up an absolutely stunning marquee for her wedding at her family home.  An open marque with a secret cocktail bar and dance floor area, complete with a 10 piece band surprise!

Not only did we start the evening celebrations off in style, we also supplied our jazz trio for arrival drinks, which was a great way to settle the guests in for their amazing day.

All the best Sophie,

The MBB x
