    READ THE TRANSCRIPTION

    Vicky: Having you guys there, having Metropolis at the wedding was key. In fact probably the thing that made the evening as good as it was, wasn’t it?

    Andy: Yeah, absolutely.

    Vicky: We’ve heard nothing but good feedback. We’ve still … about two weeks on, people gushing about how amazing our band was. We just sit there and go, “Yeah, we know.”

    Andy: (laughs)

    Vicky: We all had a fabulous time. It was absolutely great. The highlight of the entire day for me was when you let my friend Lloyd get up and sing Stevie Wonder. That was just… It was amazing. I loved it. Considering he had never met you guys before, he didn’t even know he was doing it. The fact you guys are such a good band… I mean, that he could just go up and sing… And there was just no worries at all. It was just great. It was wonderful. I loved every second of it.

    Andy: (chuckles)

    Vicky: No, it was brilliant. I was on the dance floor most of the night, I think. It was just awesome. Like I’ve said, the sound was good… If you didn’t see it was a live band, you’d think you were listening to a CD almost, apart from the atmosphere is so different. Everyone was really charged up. There’s so much positive feedback about you guys. Everyone’s just been so complementary about how awesome it was. And I think the brass section added a particular–

    Andy: Yeah. (laughs)

    Vicky: Into it. It’s just so much fun and everyone was loving it.

    Andy: Our family and friends pretty much say it was the highlight of the day, really. They couldn’t get over the quality of the band, the quality of the music and how note perfect everything was. Well, everything was perfect so, it’s like you said it’s like listening to a CD. It sounded like the actual band was in the room because everything was spot on from the guitar solos to the brass section to everything. And the family and friends were just so chuffed with the band. Not one person has not said or mentioned the band when we’re talking about the wedding and all in good positive ways.

    Vicky: Yeah, everyone’s mentioned it. Whoever you’re talking to there’s a “Oh my god! The band were amazing.”

    Andy: (laughing in agreement)

    Vicky: So it was definitely a good choice of yours.

    Andy: Oh, yes. I did something right with that.

    Vicky: Well done, you.

    Andy: But I think the main thing was, with Metropolis, is the set list. It’s what you devised. Obviously we looked through it before the wedding and we just talked, if you just get a couple of songs in, or more rocking numbers, which you did, and it was fantastic. The way you’ve designed your set list is both halves. So the first half is… it engages every age group and that one key reason. Obviously not from how great you guys are but also from the set list is how you engage the audience.

    Vicky: It’s been well thought out.

    Andy: Very much so, very much.

    Vicky: Yeah, like you said, inclusive of all age groups. Everyone’s a fulfiller, every someone there was a crowd pleaser, wasn’t it? So… yeah that was great. We loved it.

    Vicky: It’s nice as well when the singers, when one of the girls did it and Nick did it, brought down on the stage and was singing on the dance floor and dancing with people while they were singing it– Added a really nice element. it brought everyone together and made everyone feel…

    Andy: Part of the band as opposed to we’re watching you. They’re actually enjoying their night. You’re not really going to a gig, you’re actually part of a team of people…

    Vicky: Yeah that’s it. Cause there were a few times that… When people were endanger of standing and watching and just going… It’s amazing. They were getting off and getting down off the stage and getting too…

    Andy: I really enjoyed the audience attraction and I particularly, I mean even though we’re not dancers and we do not like dancing, I did enjoy dividing the dance floor. The bits where Nick had the crowd going when he separated the dance floor, do the dance-offs

    Vicky: Yeah, the dance-off was a really nice touch. I wasn’t expecting it at all. It was really good fun.  I think you gave the boys better songs, by the way. The only reason the girls didn’t win.

    Andy: (laughs)

    Vicky: If we had Nirvana, we could’ve done better. (laughs)

    Andy: That’s gonna go on record.

    Vicky: Yeah, I keep telling the boys this cause they’re all crowing that they won the dance-off.

    Andy: Metropolis is very stress free.

      Andy: It was the first time I’ve worked with you guys. I actually came to site and you were actually doing the full production of someone’s wedding. And it was just from the start to the end, how you dealt with it, your client, and the actual wedding itself and how… you were very caring about it and were making sure everything was on key. And it was one of those ones where you just thought, “It’s a no-brainer. Those guys definitely have to be at my wedding.”

      Gill: We had every aspect of the performance exactly how we wanted it. The music was soft enough for people to talk, but some people would dance during dinner, after dinner… The music was fantastic. It was a real party atmosphere, everyone was dancing. A great feeling about the evening… the guests had an amazing time, the family had a wonderful time, and more importantly the bride and bridegroom were over the moon with everything.

      Hello and welcome to a brand new year with us here on Planner’s Pod! We have lots of new and exciting things in store for all of you and we do hope you stay with us as we unveil them.

      In this episode, we decided to start things up by having Metropolis’ very own Nick Ingram, our Creative Director, for the first time here on the show. Many of you have been curious and have asked us about how we do things in the company. So, what better way to open this up for discussion than having a team member on board.

      Here we discuss the ins and outs of how to manage a live-band company, what sort of sticky situations we all get into and how we try to deal with those, as well as how to engage with clients and knowing them on a personal level to give them a unique and wonderful musical experience during their event.
