Recent Events Roundup (13/07/12)

July 17, 2012


Not every corporate event is an eye catching procession of attention grabbing performers; some events just have one or two fantastic acts – and what of them? Do they not deserve a blog write up? Well maybe they do. Maybe I’ll write one right now... You see if I don’t...

 Perennial classical background music favourites Stellini set up shop on the iconic white marble stairs of the British Museum where they performed their ever popular mixture of classical pieces and upbeat arrangements of pop numbers. Using electric instruments, this striking string quartet offer an unique and contemporary twist on the typical classical ensemble and can also perform a high energy cabaret show.

 New Orleans-style Jazz outfit The Blind Tigers have proved to be wildly popular this summer offering a delightfully lazy soundtrack to many a warm afternoon drinks reception. For this event at the Hurlingham Club, the band members donned matching striped jackets and straw boaters which fit in perfectly in the surrounds of this historic sporting club. The performance was also notable for featuring the greatest instrument ever devised... The Washboard.

 Soul singer and bona-fide pop star made an appearance for a recent corporate event in the A-List room of Madame Tussauds (who we’re running a competition with that you should definitely check out if you look like Kate Middleton). Beverley performed a selection of hits from her enviable back catalogue and resisted the urge to ‘go undercover’ as a waxwork... which - admit it - we’ve all wanted to do but most of us have been cruelly thwarted by ‘not being famous enough’.

 For a recent wedding, we provided music for both the ceremony and the reception with elegant classical music from our harpist before a performance from Rat Pack crooner and former Next Big Thing Winner Mickey Fordola (Top) who was backed by a full band complete with brass section for an authentic big band sound. Also at the event was our Toastmaster who, immaculately presented in full toastmasters costume, announced performances and speeches through the evening.
