On a balmy Bank Holiday Saturday in August, Festival Foxes headed down to the stunning stately home of North Cadbury Court in Somerset to play for Patricia, Anthony and their guests.
On arrival, the band were met by the immaculately attired and irrepressable Matthew Oliver, wedding & event planner extraordinaire together with his vivacious and stunning assistant Roxanne, a girl with more fizz than a case of Cristal champagne!
During the evening (in between auditions to join the band!) Roxanne chatted to Abi, Em, Jess & Linda resulting in this wonderful, witty and warm blog about the band:
"When I first heard we were getting an all girl band I was excited, to say the least. Its not a secret that I love a bit of girl power, go girls and women around the world! But these girls were going to be even better than your average girl band, they play instruments and pretty much rock out, hard. I couldn’t help but feel eager for Festival Foxes to play. And then, I felt apprehensive…. What if they didn’t live up to my expectations of a girl band!? What if they weren’t good!? What if they didn’t like me!? I needn’t worry. They were everything I would want in a band and more. Seriously. I turned into this little fan girl when they were performing and I had only just met them.
"Lets face it, you know you are probably going to get along when you see a bright pink glittery drum kit being set up!! They even had an outfit change. I was mesmerised and if I could sing or play an instrument this is the band I would want to be in. Needless to say me lacking in these particular areas did not stop me from asking, constantly, if I could join Festival Foxes. I got a yes but something tells me I am not going to get that call anytime soon".
