More Love…

Weddings, weddings, weddings… although next weekend we have a corporate event!  Candies and Weddings are like Strawberries and Cream… with added Champagne… and we love it when we get a few kind words after an event.  Last week we had three 🙂

Thank you all for the fantastic sets (Vintage and Disco Diva) and helping make the day (we feel) perfect for us.  You were brilliant…and I don’t know where you get the energy from!

Lots of guests said how great you were, both french and brits and we feel we couldn’t have had anything better.  Very warm wishes and thank you again

Thank you for coming and making all our guests so very happy. Everyone has been telling me how fantastic you were…brilliant.  There were so many friends and family that I needed to catch up with that I really did not have a chance to talk to you…..or even dance to your music, however I do know the dancing ones enjoyed you immensley..also the others of course.

I am sure you will have success everywhere you go..and I wish you continued success Happiness and Fun.  It was a great party and made special by all of you..Thank you again.

And a little note from our campsite gig…

I Went to another Candy Stripes concert what great entertainers these lovely ladies are. A great sound, they will have you tapping your feet singing along and up dancing and doing your thing.

A really lovely evening out & great fun We would highly recommend this great trio of ladies. Thanks for the fantastic live entertainment Keep up the great work .

Many thanks folks for the kind words… it really means a lot!



It’s no secret that The Candies love a little vintage.  We love the music, the fashion, the styling… even the lipstick! and it appears we’re not alone. Today I read an article on about the five hottest trends in 2017… and you guessed it…  Vintage is # 2!  They say that the vintage wedding trend is still going strong, with vintage styling and old style Hollywood glamour remaining as popular as ever.

Dinner Anyone?

Whilst The Candies play at lots and lots of weddings and parties, we also play at a number of restaurants and smaller summer events in our own corner of France.

This week we had two such events.  The first was for a very lovely crowd of diners at a restaurant just outside of Ruffec and the second was for a fabulous little venue just outside Verteillac in the Dordogne.

It’s been very very hot all week so both get-ins were a struggle… but made much easier with ice cold cokes for three!

Singing whilst folks eat is very different than our full party set;  we start slow and build the evening up… thankfully for us, folks love our music and by the end of the evenings we had them dancing, swaying and singing along with us!

Thanks to all involved for two very wonderful evenings.. and for our amazing suppers!!
