The Beat Collective Play In The Mountains

May 18th, 2016

A couple of weeks ago, The Lake District was the destination for The Beat Collectve, playing at a wedding in the beautiful area of Conniston as our Alive Network alter egos Backbeat. The Coppermines was the venue, and after asking some locals for directions, we were assured we were in the right area when we approached what looked like a walkers path. A 2 mile drive up a stoney mountain later, we finally saw the marquee on the horizon. The drive was worth the wait, as you can see from the amazing photo below. Smashing wedding and a great crowd who filled the dancefloor all night.

We were in Sheffield last weekend, and we return again on Saturday, with our Friday night spent playing in Leeds. It’s going to be anther great weekend.

The last few weeks have been a busy time for The Beat Collective, Yorkshires finest wedding and function band. One of the most interesting and fun in recent times was at a 21st birthday party in Shropshire.

Suffice to say, we had a fantastic night and it was a pleasure to be part of the twins special birthday evening.

Last weekend saw us play a wedding in Wakefield, Yorkshire, whilst this weekend we travel down the M1 to Derbyshire for a wedding. Things are really picking up now the wedding season is in full flow and long may it continue.
