Stu and Emma Miller Wedding May 2016
We booked The Big Papas after seeing them at a showcase performance. Jamie's massive bluesy voice instantly stood out, as did the inclusion of a saxophonist giving the cover songs a very welcome and interesting twist. Feeling very impressed by the performance we went ahead and booked. From the point of making the booking, the band were total professionals and we had all of the arrangements in place really quickly (which was relieving given the million and one other things we still had to organise).
On the night itself we couldn't be happier. The band kicked off with our first song, a brilliant version of "Need your love so bad" in the style of Fleetwood Mac. Even by the end of the first song the whole dance floor had filled up and it remained this way for the entire evening. The Big Papas kept the dance floor alight with a blend of classic and contemporary covers that kept our guests from ages of 6 to 76 bopping away all night. They had great stage presence and their good sense of humour shone throughout their performance. At the end of the night the guys told us they were absolutely gutted the night had ended so soon (we only had the venue until 11.30pm) and wished they could have played on longer! This was a feeling shared by all in attendance!
Since the night of the wedding we have received nothing but total praise about The Big Papas from a large number of our guests. We would happily (and indeed effusively!) recommend The Big Papas to anyone planning their big day, these guys are a pleasure to work with and most importantly they really know how to rock out!" -Giffnock 28th May 2016.
I deliberately didn't mention our little performance because I imagine that isn't something you'd necessarily encourage at all of your gigs! Thanks so much for being cool about us going up and giving it a wee shot ourselves!
And thanks once again for an amazing performance on the night, as mentioned in the testimonial so many of our guests have given you guys a lot of praise when reflecting on the night, and we really hope to run into you guys again soon (regrettably we've got no Scottish based weddings lined up to attend - but we could always wedding crash!).
