So, we loaded up our gear and headed out down the hiway, to a location we'd never been before...just a map in hand. After getting lost only once, our little gypsy caravan pulled on to the Maynard property, the location of the wedding in which our band,GYPSYHEAD, were to play. It was a beautiful place. My band mates were still unsure about this gig, "Are you sure about this Dave? They DO know we play rock'n'roll right?" As I told them, "we were requested by the BRIDE, so thats that."
There was a deck overlooking a large pond with floating candles, that was to be the dance floor and a stage...very cool set up. There was an electrical issue, but we got that taken care of.
Our friends from The Horses Mouth were there supply the guests with iced coffee, whom we shared a table with. Table 18, reserved for Gypsies and Horses. How cool is that.
After the food was served we finally got to take the stage....our doubts all soon disappeared because once we started playing.....they came to the dance floor....they danced at their tables....they danced by the pond.....we were accepted with cheers. It was awesome. They danced all night. We gave the bride and groom Gypsyhead t-shirts...they immediately put them on, over their wedding dress and suit. I loved it!!
We took a break as everyone watched the newlyweds drive off in their limo, beneath a huge fireworks display and a trail of sparklers showing the way into the night.
It was an awesome gig....we did our last set to a packed dance floor. It was a fantastic experience, even tho I was tired, I wasnt ready for it to end.
