Thanks to facebook.com/amazingphotobooths for this photo, which was taken at David and Claire's recent wedding at Woddhill Hall, Otterburn
The first clip is a montage of five live favourites. The second is the band's full live version of "Forget You" by CeeLo Green. This performance took place in June 2014 at Gosforth Civic Hall for Barbara and Tom's wedding. The sound quality isn't perfect as the band was recorded using only the
camera mics, and as usual, the playing and singing was done completely
The footage was filmed and edited by Tony Tait of Tait2 Productions.
