Please Get Well Soon

A few weeks ago we posted news about re-forming the five-piece.  At the time we had been in touch with Ben; he played bass with us before and he’s a great guy.  Our request was bad timing for him as he’d been working hard building his business and felt that now was just the wrong…

All Change in Dordogne

John, Stu and Colleen have been playing together now for many years.  We started life as Oui-Three; a trio of course!  In 2014 we decided to try life as a five piece and it was great but sadly it ended a year ago when we lost our drummer.  We went back to being a trio…

Beaux Villages and the Chateau

Last week The Candy Stripes made a visit to the very lovely Chateau des Vigiers in the Dordogne… so it only seemed fair that this week REPLAY had a turn. We’d been invited to play for a New Year Dinner Dance for Beaux Villages France. The event was being held in the Chateau’s Chai; an…

Christmas with Candies

REPLAY are a busy band but they don’t play every week and when they’re not playing Colleen can be found singing with a new girl group called The Candy Stripes. Last year REPLAY we were booked to provide the music for the NEDWA anniversary party and it was so well received we were asked to…

Party for the Planners

REPLAY love weddings!  Our work means that we get to meet lots of other wedding professionals and lots and lots of wedding planners.  One name that pops up again and again for us is Marry me in France… if they’re planning one of our weddings we’re always pretty confident that things are going to go…

Booking a Wedding Band in France

I ran this post last year… but felt it rings very true today so thought I’d add it again! I met up with a French wedding planner and we talked about some of the issues couples face when searching for a wedding band. It was an interesting conversation and I thought I’d share some of…

Time for a new Blog!

We’ve been running a blog for a few years but I felt it was about time we upgraded to a smart new WORDPRESS blog! I do try to remember to take my camera to every gig and I do try to write each time I get home. I think this helps to build the picture…
