It's hard to believe it's already here! Seems like just months ago we were busy organizing bands for the 6 nations match in 2015 but then 2015 was quite a year for Rugby as we also had our hands full with the World Cup and boy was that an experience, with so much to organize and heaps of logistical stuff to consider.
Still, we got there in the end and I'm very pleased to say everything went off without a hitch and our wonderful bands and crews did us proud once again! Of course, immediately after the World Cup ended we were busy organizing entertainment for the Killik Cup and the Aviva Premiership matches. Understandably then, 2015 feels like a bit of a blur at the moment as it all went by so quickly in the end (which is probably why I'm still wondering how we got to RBS 6 nations 2016 so quickly)!
So what can we expect from Act Sharp for the RBS matches at Twickenham this year? Well, they're pretty elaborate affairs usually so we're very likely to be placing a number of bands for each of the dates. The first date to stick in your diary is Saturday 27th February. This is for the England v Ireland match (16.50 kick off). The next RBS match at Twickenham is the England v Wales match (16.00 kick off), on 12th March.
Act Sharp will be laying on the post match entertainment for both of these events (typically for up to about 3hrs) in a number of the bars around the stadium and possibly in the West Fan Village area as well (TBC). This will comprise of some amazing rock & pop style party bands and, for those of you who feel the need to celebrate the victory (or commiserate) in a more, expressive, vocal fashion, we'll have a very talented, if rather cheeky, Karaoke DJ in the Drop Kick as well.
Here's a little taster of just some of the bands that you can expect to see at Twickenham for the RBS 6 nations and also throughout 2016 folks....
More information on which bands will be performing at which Twickenham locations to follow in due course folks, so please do check back over the coming days and weeks as we'll be updating this article with more details as we get them.
