Friday Friends - The Beau Ties

This weeks Friday Friends is the coolest girl band THE BEAU TIES! 

We were introduced to the crazily talented ladies at a tweet up recently organised by the lovely Little Wedding Helper at Goldbrick House, Bristol. These four girls stood in the corner looking a little dubious at their 'wedding industry' audience and just started singing the most gorgeous Southern Bluegrass/ Blues/ Rockn'roll A Capella harmonies. No mics just feet tapping, hand clapping beautiful sounds. It sure silenced me.

I'm not great at describing music so here is how they describe themselves.

"Bristol based band of babes singing A Capella! Covers from Little Richard to Nina Simone and some toe tapping originals written by the girls themselves. Sarah Jade, Emma Steel, April Jackson and Kim Fielding met at The Old duke and still pour your whiskeys from time to time!"

These girls ain't no typical wedding band and you would so want them to be at your wedding (or any event) as they would make you look incredibly cool. They didn't disappoint in styling either with a perfect splattering of leopard print, tattoos and prettiness. I have a feeling from their facebook pics that they may do some even more brilliantly style costuming for performances. We may have to get them in some of our dresses! 

Speaking to the ladies themselves you couldn't meet a more down to earth band, they even bought their collie dog along too who patiently waited outside whilst they sang.

Check out their facebook to see where they are playing next. I'm wanting to hear a  lot more from The Beau Ties and if you don't like them, well ...............

Warning: you will get a Total girl crush 'wannabe in your band' fan alert.
