Chris and Sophies wedding at The Corinthian Club, Glasgow.

It was an absolute please for us to head up to Glasgow for Chris and Sophies stunning wedding this July. After many changed dates due to Covid and a new Venue, it was great to finally help Chris and Sophie to celebrate their wedding day.

The Corinthian Club in Glasgow provided the perfect venue. A glamorous venue in which The Mini Big Band’s vintage set up fit in perfectly.

So many smiles, so much laughter. You guys were an absolute pleasure to play for. All the best x

Back at Bibis! Back on stage!

Well, it’s been a rather quiet and unusual time for us this summer, as it has for everybody.  Due to Covid, we’ve been working hard moving all of our clients wedding dates from this year free of charge, to hopefully happier times in the future.  And boy will we all be ready to PARTY by then.

Things have started to move again for us and this weekend saw us return for our first post covid performance at the amazing Bibis restaurant in Leeds.  It was great to be back doing what we love and also great to see that this can work in a Covid secure way.  The restaurant has an amazing Covid policy in place keeping all of the guest safe and we matched this with our distanced stage set and keeping ourselves to a bubble through out.

As performances go, this was really special for us and the audience alike.  The first time we have performed to smiling faces in over 6 months!

It was great to see that live music is possible at these times with the correct preparations in place and hopefully a sign of things to come.
