The Arrindell Sisters

by Richard on August 6, 2013

We had the pleasure of backing Keri Arrindell (from X Factor) and her sisters in their Supremes tribute act on Eastbourne Bandstand on Friday night – they were absolutely marvellous! Really hope to work with these beautiful, talented young ladies again soon.

Rockaoke at the Hootananny

by Richard on August 6, 2013

We’ve been doing this gig for over 5 years now, every month. We have a great crowd who come down to sing, and there’s always a real mixture of regulars and Rockaoke virgins. Check out our song list on the Rockaoke page and like our Facebook page too! We’re very friendly, and unlike some of the bands out there, we’ll help you through your song if you’re not very confident. Come down and check us out on the first Wednesday of every month.

Amberley Castle

July 11, 2011

Played at Amberley Castle near Arundel on Saturday for a beautiful wedding. We provided a jazz trio during the champagne (and Pimms) reception, then 3 x 45 minute sets of party music in the evening. Fabulous grounds, polite and helpful staff, a wonderful wedding planner (Isobel Lamplough), fireworks, even a rare albino peahen – we [...]

Dover Street Wine Bar

June 16, 2011

Cornucopia rocked the Dover Street Wine Bar last night – we played a 2-set showcase there from 10.30pm and received many appreciative comments from the punters (and indeed the bouncers!). The sound seems to have vastly improved there since last I played Dover St – I seem to remember being hit with a wall of [...]

Glaxo SmithKline Oncology Conference

June 15, 2011

Cornucopia opened up the conference for the GSK Oncology Department up in the North Mymms training centre with a fantastic rendition of Queen’s “One Vision”.

Royal Wedding

May 7, 2011

Well, we didn’t play for the Royal Wedding, but our lead vocalist Damien did sing at Hyde Park in the afternoon before hot-footing it down to Horsted Place near Uckfield for a beautiful wedding. A fantastic gig – indeed, possibly one of our best. We wowed them with 3 sets, and we had the lovely [...]

Luella’s Boudoir at One Marylebone

March 22, 2011

Went along to the amazing One Marylebone with Mary-Jane from Halcyon Weddings last night to attend the Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair. It was stunning. One Marylebone is an amazing venue to start with… and with red roses on the walls (amazing what one can do with some red par-cans and gobos) the main hall looked [...]

Rockaoke nights

March 5, 2011

It’s official. “Cornucopia are the best band for Rockaoke we’ve ever heard”. So say Marc and Julie, who hired the band to play for their wedding in Brighton. “We went to see several Rockaoke bands at places like the Roadhouse, but they were all a bit limited in the choice of music they offered. Cornucopia’s [...]

Ousefield House Officers Mess

December 12, 2010

Last night we performed at the Ousefield House Officers Mess Christmas Party in York. The 5-piece played till 1am and I DJ-ed until 3am – some dedicated partygoers were still on the dancefloor right till the end. It’s a long way to go, but it’s worth it – they know how to party and always [...]
