And just like that, 20 years passes!
When Session formed in St Cyres School in Penarth, we never dreamt that the name we came up with that day would become recognised as one of the leading wedding and event bands in Wales and across the UK. As musicians and friends, we have now performed at over 1000 weddings together across the world constantly evolving and developing the band year-on-year to become bigger, better and more versatile.
What started as a humble 4-piece rock and pop band is now a multi-award winning 5-piece luxury event band. Session added the charismatic vocalist Fay Church to the lineup in 2018, allowing the band to offer both world-class male and female lead vocals. The repertoire was big before, now it is huge! We cover all genres and musical styles ranging from soul to pop, funk to rock and everything in between. We are also well known for throwing in some 'guilty-pleasures’ to keep the dance floor moving! We'll leave you to ‘Google' the interesting fact regarding Cameron and every Welshman’s Fireman from Pontypandy!...
Session perform, and always will, 100% live. We love the energy of a one-off performance and will never follow the trend of playing ‘live’ to pre-recorded backing tracks. We’re real people, who care deeply about the band’s reputation and quality of our performances. We always promise to give our guests every excuse to enjoy a night they won’t forget!
As well as offering top class live entertainment as a full 5-piece band, Session also perform as a live acoustic trio to cater for a variety of events, weddings and parties. The Session acoustic trio features the male and female vocals of Cameron, Fay and Ceri supported by their two acoustic guitars and piano - the perfect vibe for the more relaxed wedding, party or event.
Session were hugely honoured to be accepted as members of the Wedding Guild of Wales in June 2020. The ethos, vision and reputation of the Guild aligns perfectly with that of the band. We unreservedly support our fellow suppliers who offer quality, professional and reliable wedding services. After many years of working with many of the best in Wales, we are delighted to be recommended by our fellow suppliers to join the Guild.
We feel passionately about providing customers with honest and reliable information to make the most informed choices. The ‘Instagram’ culture of “we love…” and “we recommend…” is waring and actively misleading to both brides, grooms and their families. We have not joined the Guild looking to gain additional advertising or bookings. We have joined because, after 20 successful years in an industry full of swanky websites and bought ‘likes’ we enjoy, more than ever, surrounding ourselves with suppliers, venues and couples who share our passion for high-quality customer care and professional service.
You can find out more information about the band through the Guild’s website and at www.SessionUK.com. We are also active on both Instagram and Facebook (@Session.UK) - give us a ‘like’ and see for yourselves!
