With Christmas and a New Year on the horizon, it’s that time of year for reflection and looking back at the year. 2017 has been a really great year for the band. The four of us have been really busy, playing up and down the country and having an awesome time along the way.
There have been so many fantastic highlights in 2017. We have been fortunate enough to play at lots of Weddings this year.
We say fortunate, as we don’t take Weddings for granted. They make up a huge part of what we do in the band, and we feel like it is a huge honour to perform for a couple’s special day.
Plus the chance to have some cake is always an added bonus too!
We would like to give a huge thank you to all of the happy couples, who have booked us, sang, and danced with us this year! x
2017 also saw the first “United in Music” concert take place. For those of you who missed out, The Superlicks’ very own Will Robey created the event to help raise money for Macmillian and York Against Cancer. The event was a huge success and raised a ton of money In the process. We would like to thank everyone involved who helped make it a massive hit.
United in Music II will be returning for 2018 (More of that to follow below).
If that wasn’t enough, alongside various Charity events and Summer Balls, we also managed to squeeze in a couple of appearances at York Racecourse. We loved playing for York’s race-goers during the Summer’s, Grand Cup event.
The crowd were really fantastic, and in fine voice that day, helping sing in all weather conditions (I think we had tropical heat, combined with what seemed like a hurricane all in one day!). We will be returning for more fun at York Racecourse in 2018 and we can’t wait!
Here’s a video of our day at the Races – https://youtu.be/1R0my-1kj4c
Looking forward 2018 is shaping up to our busiest year to date.
We are really excited about getting stuck into what is looking like an action packed 12 months of gigs. The majority of our gigs are private functions and Weddings, but we do have plenty of public events lined up too.
