Blog#9 Our First Booking Of 2019

Last week saw 'Energy' perform our first booking of 2019.  I (Phil) had really missed it and was delighted to 'get the show back on the road' again.  We performed at a black tie event for a fantastic group of people from Harleston, the venue was The Park Hotel near Diss in Suffolk. A pleasant Hotel with staff offering a warm and informative welcome on our arrival.  Also, a fantastic load in, the stage being about 10/15m from the car boot.  A major bonus for bands like us when you have a lot of equipment, especially when the weather isn't great. We had lots of downtime on this particularly booking; three and a half hours from set up to performing, so the comfortable changing area and great food provided was more than appreciated. We had the opportunity to try out some new tracks.   Firstly 'Angels' by Robbie Williams (I'm a guilty closet fan), which went down brilliantly.  We've always veered away from performing smoochy love ballads i

Blog#8 First Booking of 2019

Hello everyone, happy 2019, may it be a successful one for you. We're very excited to be performing our first booking of 2019 tomorrow, a black tie event in Diss, Norfolk. We'll be performing new songs.  The recent funky and upbeat 'Treasure' - Bruno Mars, and 'Cake by the ocean' - DNCE, and the smoochy classic 'Angels' - Robbie Williams. We're also hoping to take footage for a gig video diary of a typical 'Energy' booking, and try to keep it under 1, maybe 2 mins - watch this space,  but who knows how long it will take me to edit it? Thanks for reading, we'll be blogging again before long, Phil Band Leader and Drummer Norwich Norfolk Wedding Party Band
