Wedding, Furnace Pond Cottage, West Sussex
Oh my goodness we CANNOT say enough good words about Sega and the Boombox! All of our guests are still raving about how fantastic they were!
Calling Sega the greatest wedding band of all time would be doing them a disservice. They're not a wedding band - they're not a Bruno-Mars-crooning, smooth-singing bunch of cheese merchants. These guys bring the party like nobody else. We had them at our wedding a few weeks ago and there is not one person I have hung out with since then that hasn't told me how awesome the band were. Obviously, that you grew up with the soundtrack of the 90s is kind of a prerequisite for Sega but if you did, then they are simply mind-blowingly brilliant. The quality of the musicians, the stunning vocals, the pleasingly 90s clothing references, and the raw, unadulterated energy of them all make Sega one of the best live acts I have ever seen.
We were worried about them being a bit niche (i.e. our parents' generation wouldn't dance) but we were wrong. Firstly, the parents did get involved (Nana Joan smashing it up to 50 Cent, In da Club) but they also enjoyed standing back and watching a group of 30-year-old teenagers have an awesome time.
If you're on the fence about them - go see them play live (they play a lot) and they will remove any doubts. We went to see them when I was ill - I was up and dancing within 2 songs and didn't stop.
Crowdsurfing to Rage's 'Killing in the Name of' will be a memory I treasure for ever...
Thank you guys for making our wedding day just THE BEST. xx
