Hello you lovely lot!
A little deviation from our usual weekly posts today, but its something you all need to be aware of! So, if you’ve got any plans for November, then this needs to be on the list!

T Festival Logo


The wonderful #Cwtchfest live music suppliers, The iGency are once again being brilliant. They very rarely do public gigs, but are fabulously supplying this festival theme party in order to raise money for #curlycarsfund.

When Carolyn Gammon was pregnant with her second child, the beautiful baby girl Mira, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Although she was treated with chemotherapy, once Mira was born via c-section, Carolyn was given the devastating news that the cancer has spread and it was now incurable.


Carolyn is now hoping to raise £150k in order to self fund special medication that will prolong her life, allowing her to bring up her gorgeous little boy and beautiful baby girl, in case the NHS cannot fund it.


T Festival is being organised in order to help towards this total! Held at Taibach RFC on Friday 18th November, dress up in your best festival outfit, get your rock socks on, purchase your £10 ticket and go and dance the night away!

Hello all you lovely Cwtch readers…we are thrilled to be involved in Wales’ first wedding festival…Cwtchfest! It is going to be a fantastic event and a really refreshing change from your typical wedding fair, we are very excited…you are in for a treat.
The iGency is a live entertainment agency based in South Wales. Run by myself  & my partner Ryan, between us we have over 30 years professional music industry experience. My background is West End Theatre & Ryan is one of Wales’ top session drummers and has toured the world with numerous shows. We use our experience to create manage and mentor our main acts, hand picking only the finest and loveliest talent the area has to offer. We supply stylish entertainment to hundreds of weddings every year and have thus become ‘wedding experts’. We can help with all aspects of the entertainment for your big day, we can even offer bespoke solutions for your event,  get in touch and let us know what you require. We are passionate about providing our clients with top quality entertainment, when you book an act from The iGency you can rest assured you are booking the best.
Test 5
The iGency will be supplying lots of great entertainment throughout the day at  Cwtchfest. If you are thinking of booking entertainment for your big day come and see our team live on 19th April. In most circumstances it is not possible to see our bands live as they perform at private functions. Due to the fact they are private, we can not obtain access and would hate to intrude on anyone’s special day or big event. Cwtchfest is a rare and exclusive opportunity to see for yourself  the magic a live band can bring to your wedding. Amongst the line up on the day will be our top bands iPop, iRock, iTones & iLectric who’s vocalist Shellyann has recently appeared on ‘The Voice’. We will also be showcasing our  acoustic acts, a super cool gypsy jazz act and our delightful string quartet.
Live entertainment is such a special part of any wedding it will be a talking point for years to come. So much of the feedback we receive talks about the band making the night,  creating an amazing atmosphere, filling the dance floor… the right band truly does just that, nothing else compares. It is important to choose a band that is professional in their attitudes and performance, have great equipment (this can really impact the sound), and are experienced and easy to deal with, all our acts offer this. My advice when booking a band would be do not just go for the cheapest option chances are the reason they are cheapest is because they are not as good. A great band will make the night a bad band can break it ;) 
We hope to see you at Cwtchfest on 19th April for a taster of what we offer, it would be great to meet you.  Drop us a line before hand if you are interested in a particular band and we can advise you on the schedule for the day.

Along side running the The iGency Ryan & I perform in the band iPop. iPop is where it all began…

We play at over 100 weddings and events every year. The entire band have extensive industry experience and are full time, highly experienced, professional musicians. We know exactly how important booking the right wedding band is and we are really passionate about making your big day the best it can be.

 As we all know weddings can become expensive, we try to keep our prices affordable by offering our stylish 4 piece line up. Prices include the whole evenings entertainment, a state of the art PA sound system, lighting and all music between sets played via DJ software. Travelling the world is fabulous but we love performing here in Wales…especially since we recently gained a new addition to the iPop team….our whirlwind daughter ;) As we are based in Wales you guys get our absolute best prices & we are currently offering a special deal to Cwtch readers having Welsh weddings. Please get in touch and mention Cwtch The Bride for details.

 iPop specialise in modern chart floor fillers but with our years of experience and huge repertoire of the best party hits of all time we can adapt our set list specifically for you. We can also offer an acoustic set for the drinks reception or wedding breakfast, and a super cool live DJ to compliment the band.Your entertainment can be individually tailored to suit your style and budget.
