A busy summer Wedding season gets underway with a lovely day and a favour for an old friend.
These days Love Junkies blog posts may be something of a rarity. That’s not to say we don’t have anything to share – if anything we have too much. Even after we’ve cleaned it up a bit. It’s just that, well the prose has been lacking of late.
Last night, The Love Junkies played Gaynes Park in Essex. The band turned up early to try out a new lighting rig. Having allowed enough time to give the system a proper workout, we got in a sound check and there-in commenced battle with the sound limiter. Booo! Pah! More frustration! Set very low, the […]
Love Junkies – Guernsey 19th June, Dave, Rachel, Marcus & Chris Did you know the Love Junkies travel? If the last two gigs have been anything to go by this would seem to be becoming a habit. Have van, will travel, etc. And so it was, on a Thursday night in June, driving from St […]

Rox meets Andy Day from CBeebies. Hero worship ensues… Last night’s gig at Fanhams Hall in Ware was the wedding of Laura and Warren. The gig came through our singing buddy Doug Quinn. Doug is also in Speakeasy and joined us in the second set for a few tunes – we like when Doug sings […]
Sometimes, articles just speak for themselves. If the wedding’s over-running by an hour, the band happen to be twiddling their thumbs and are holed up in a changing room, they might just get creative…or likely, just start fooling about a little. *The Love Junkies would like to make it clear that no hats were harmed […]
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.
