Vocal cover.

Just a beautiful tune. I can't wait until I'm able to get out performing this on my guitar again!

Amazing One Take Recording of Times Like These in an acoustic style!

Enjoy the latest of my 'Lockdown Live' recordings. I'm delighted to be joined by a special guest performer this week, the fantastic Simon Rudd on guitar! You asked for it (!) so we made it happen.

Remember that the 'lockdown live' performances are recorded as one continuous live take, the video editing is done afterwards!

Here's the latest in my 'Lockdown' series!

You might notice that I've cheated slightly this week and this one isn't live!

As part of the performance service that we offer to clients I offer the option to record a special song, for example a wedding couple's first dance song, as a memento to keep forever to remember their day! A wedding client from two years ago approached me recently to ask if I was willing to record her first dance song posthumously as an anniversary gift for her husband! I have taken the opportunity to update the package (so that it's no longer a 'first dance CD, but is now instead a first dance digital recording and video package)! Evidently, the video could include a special message or dedication; however that didn't seem appropriate to publish online!

Remember to like the band's facebook page so that you don't miss next week's edition!

Hope you enjoy! Greg x

Here's the latest in our 'Lockdown Live' series!

This one was a request from Richard and Kelly (we would have been performing at their wedding today!). It has a lovely sentiment and they wanted us to play this song because, after all the craziness and despite everything that's gone on, they just want to have their wedding! We look forward to celebrating with them in 2021!

Here's the latest in the 'Lockdown Live' video series.

This weekend myself and the band would have been performing for Emma and Graham's wedding and they set me the challenge of performing an acoustic guitar cover of this Marvin Gaye classic!

If I'd left myself a little more time to do it (!) I would probably have arranged it for one guitar. However, I opted to pull in the guitar talents of my (much more handsome) twin brother.... erm (ha ha!!).

Hope you enjoy, see you again next week! Greg x

Here's the latest in our 'Lockdown Live' series! This one features the three piece band, all from the comfort of our own homes!

This weekend The Abyss Wedding & Function Band would have been performing at Julie's party. She didn't specifically have a song request for me, but as it's been a bit of a glum week (in terms of the weather) we thought we'd perform something uplifting!

We look forward to performing at Julie's party in 2021!

It's Friday (!) so it must be time for the next instalment of my 'Lockdown Live' Series!

This weekend myself and the boys would have been performing at Kim and Will's wedding. I've taken a request from them and they said they would like to hear me perform Elvis' classic track 'Can't Help Falling in Love'. As it's a song that has been covered so many times (!) I have taken a few liberties with the arrangement to try and come up with something that sounds a little more unique than a straight arpeggio backing. I'm pretty happy with the result and I hope that you like it to?

I'd like to wish Kim & Will a Happy 'Minimony' for Saturday (this seems to be the term adopted on the internet for those celebrating their original postponed wedding date)! We look forward to celebrating with you in the flesh in 2021. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this little performance.

Keep your eyes peeled for my next rendition, I have several videos coming to you in July. If you've enjoyed the video, and have committed to reading this far in the post (!), then please hit subscribe on the youtube video so that you don't miss any future Lockdown Live performances!

Hi everyone,

Little Lion Man (written by Mumford and Sons) is the latest cover in my 'Lockdown Live' series of videos. The videos are primarily shot in the barn and are recorded as one live performance take. Tonight I would have been playing an acoustic solo set at The Garrison so this is dedicated to all who would have made the trip out to see me perform, I will hopefully see you later in the year!

Keep your eyes peeled for next weeks rendition. If you've enjoyed the video then please give the page a like so that you don't miss a thing!

Stay safe, Greg

Thanks for checking in. Greg

Hi all,

Another weekend.. another song release and this is a BIG ONE!! This week's offering features Greg singing Castle on the Hill... with non-other than British music legend, Ed Sheeran!

You may remember that I am aiming to get some new content uploaded at weekends, when I would have been out performing. This weekend, I would have been performing at Abby and Sarah's wedding. Unfortunately, I am a bit sad about this event in particular as it is one of the very few COVID-19 affected events where the band could not accommodate the couple's rescheduled 2021 date. Evidently, we get to know our wedding clients really well during the planning process and we also get very excited about performing at their big day, so I am disappointed that we won't be able to celebrate with them in 2021. However, I wish them all the best for their big day and I'm sure that they will have a fantastic time!

So.. to help cheer me up this weekend, I headed over to smule and recorded my latest lockdown video with one of the world's best selling music artists, Ed Sheeran!!

It was my first time on smule and it was a lot of fun - let me know if there are any other stars that you would like to see me duet with and I'll see what I can do!

Enjoy! Greg

This weekend I should have been performing for a lovely event that was raising money for The Encephalitis Society.

With the event being postponed (like all of my performance events at the moment!) I thought I would take the time to shoot a quick video of a beautiful song by Robyn which is likely have made it into my set!

Stay safe, Greg x

Dear all,

I hope that everyone is keeping safe (and staying at home as much as possible) during these truly bizarre and uncertain times.

With the PM's decision to cancel all weddings, baptisms and public gatherings for the foreseeable future; all of our April, May and June event dates have now been rescheduled. With this in mind I wanted to touch base with all our clients to let you know that WE WOULD STILL LOVE TO BE YOUR WEDDING/FUNCTION BAND (!).

We get excited and emotionally invested in the events that we perform at and we will do our very best to accommodate any change of date and postponement. However, do please keep us informed and liaise with us regarding any change of date. 2021 is shaping up to be a VERY busy year with the usual new bookings coming in and most summer 2020 bookings being pushed back to 2021.

If I could offer some advice to those looking at the possibility of rescheduling your event to 2021, do try to get a selection of dates from your venue – including some mid-week dates – as this increases the possibility of bringing together the same team of suppliers to perform at your event. Start speaking to venues and suppliers early and keep in contact to ensure that you are able to get a new date to align for all involved!

For newly engaged couples and those looking to book the perfect band/venue/photographer for your new event in 2021 I would urge you to look early and get your suppliers booked in for your perfect 2021 event ASAP. It is going to be an incredibly busy year for most wedding and event suppliers, such as ourselves, so do work with us to find the perfect date and package for your special day!

Keep well, be strong and stay in contact! Greg x
