Busy as ever, Aston Band went international once again, this time flying to El Gouna Egypt, a gorgeous resort Hurghada. This event was a very lavish Egyptian wedding right on the beach, at The Smokery Yacht Club. Upon arriving for sound check, first of all noticing all the gorgeous yachts docked in the marina, it was clear to see just what a SPECTACULAR event this was going to be. Our stage was elevated high above the golden sands with gorgeous views of the Red Sea coastline. At 36 degrees, it was quite possibly one of the hottest soundchecks we’ve ever done - we were definitely grateful for the occasional breeze!
We opted for our glitzy white and silver costumes for this event as the request was to match the theme of the night. Once hair and make up was done, the female singers went on and performed a Girls International chilled dinner set with our beautiful saxophonist Cat, whilst our guests mingled below.
Girls International is the all female ‘DJ LIVE’ Aston Band spin off. When you book Aston Band you can often get two bands for one, should you require. It is very cool! The girls can do their thing then we introduce the boys later on to create the traditional ‘band’.
A couple of hours after the dinner set and a costume change later, we took to the stage as our 6 piece band, ready to rock, and really got the party started! The crowd were definitely up for a good time, and no sooner had we started our second song, were we joined on stage by about 25 party goers, including the bride and groom, all busting out some serious dance moves alongside us! Everyone we met was lovely and so welcoming, thank you so much to (bride & groom) for having us perform on their special night. We wish them all the happiness on their journey together. Until next time Egypt!
