A Wedding at The Hidden Hive

When it comes to a joyous celebration like a wedding, few things can rival the excitement and energy of a live band. Recently, we had the incredible opportunity to perform at a wedding at The Hidden Hive in Swadlincote, and what a night it was! With two sets filled with an eclectic mix of timeless classics and modern hits, we had the dance floor buzzing and guests on their feet throughout the evening. In this blog post, we’ll take you on a musical journey, highlighting the unforgettable songs that made the night truly magical.

First Set: A Blast from the Past The first set kicked off with the iconic “Song 2” by Blur, setting the stage for an energetic and lively performance. We followed up with the crowd-pleaser “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus, which brought back fond memories for many. Oasis’ “She’s Electric” and “Roll With It” kept the energy flowing, while Supergrass’ “Alright” had everyone singing along.

As the night progressed, the atmosphere became even more electric with songs like “Dreaming of You” by The Coral and “Park Life” by Blur. The crowd couldn’t help but move to the infectious beats of “Shut up and Dance” by Walk the Moon and “Heavyweight Champion of the World” by Reverend and The Makers. The momentum continued with the nostalgic tunes of “Holiday” by Green Day and the Arctic Monkeys’ indie anthem “Mardy Bum.” The first set reached its crescendo with The Strokes’ “Last Nite” and Stereophonics’ anthemic “Dakota,” leaving the crowd eagerly anticipating the second set.

Second Set: Unforgettable Hits As the second set began, we cranked up the energy even further with the explosive “Take Me Out” by Franz Ferdinand. The dance floor was a whirlwind of excitement as we delved into the infectiously catchy “Love Machine” by Girls Aloud and Amy Winehouse’s soulful rendition of “Valerie.”

We continued to captivate the crowd with the ever-popular “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” by The Darkness, followed by The Killers’ timeless hit “Mr. Brightside.” Blink-182’s punk-rock anthem “All the Small Things” had the guests singing at the top of their lungs, while Arctic Monkeys’ classic “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” turned the venue into a frenzy of dancing and exuberance.

Our performance soared to new heights with the beloved “Common People” by Pulp and Jet’s electrifying “Are You Gonna Be My Girl.” The crowd’s energy peaked as we unleashed The Fratellis’ “Chelsea Dagger” and Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire.” Oasis’ timeless ballad “Don’t Look Back in Anger” provided a heartfelt and emotional moment for everyone present, before we closed the second set with the anthemic “Sit Down” by James and the iconic bassline of “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes.

Conclusion: A Night of Musical Bliss As the final notes reverberated through the venue, it was clear that the wedding at The Hidden Hive in Swadlincote would be etched in the memories of all those who attended. The power of live music to bring people together, to make them dance and sing with unbridled joy, was evident throughout the night.
