Sunday. It was a day that had we known what was waiting for us, could’ve struck fear into all of our hearts. As it was though, I am able to write this knowing that our duties despatched, The Love Junkies rose through the storm to deliver.
I wouldn’t say it’s been a harsh winter gig-wise but January and February have been a bit quiet on the wedding front so it was nice to get back into the swing of it again with Charlotte and John’s wedding at Brocket Hall. For couples worried about their guests feet during dancing, here’s an idea. […]
Just what is it about bass players and pantomimes? Like proverbial moths, fluttering over to a naked candle they are all drawn by the lure of regular Christmas work. ’tis the season, and all that we suppose. This is all very nice for the bassist, oh yes, nice sit down in the pit, plundering bass […]
Here’s one that I’m going to put out to the function band community. Is it right to charge for learning a new song for, say a wedding? A song that you’re very unlikely to play again and is not in keeping with the rest of your set. This issue is salient for the hirer also. […]
We’re pleased to announce a new relationship with agents ‘Love Live Music’. Our first gig for the agency, run by Sally Freeman was on Saturday night at the Merchant Taylors school. The gig was a fund raiser and dinner for the Scrummers, Rugby Club.

Sometimes, articles just speak for themselves.

The Love Junkies play High Rocks Hotel, Sun 13th Sept 2009 As Sunday weddings go, this one was pretty darn good. The venue, High Rocks hotel, Tunbridge Wells was a suitably fine hotel. Absolutely lovely setting, over three floors, with a steam train to boot to take the guests round on a jolly (albeit in […]
So, you’ve driven for three hours, set up your equipment, sound checked, dressed, done two sets, and are just about to pack up the gear and drive home when you hear the immortal words “…my mate plays guitar, let ‘im ‘ave a go.“ In very few other walks of life would you ever hear a […]
