The Wedding Singer

Published on 16/02/2007 in Real Life Stories

Eazi-kEazi-k are a family functions band comprised by three siblings, Ernest H Slade (Guitars/Bass) , Zoe Torres (Lead Vocals) and Keeran Slade (Keyboards/Bass) which can  be regularly seen around the Costa del Sol, playing at weddings, corporate functions, fairs and other such events.

Having formed in 1999 they already carry a wealth of experience and hundreds of road miles having travelled the length and breadth of Andalucia, performing for audiences from all over the planet, at all sorts of venues from small intimate restaurants to five star luxury resorts.

Performing at these types of functions can be a pack of wild cards, although it definitely builds character and is thoroughly enjoyed by all three of us, as it’s always been our equal ambition for music that has taken us forward. Sometimes things occur that are well beyond belief. We’ve had every type of imaginable occurrence at functions. You know the drill, at weddings and parties everyone likes to have a drink or two as people do of course, and that’s when it all happens. We’ve seen everything from groups of Scotsmen in full regalia lifting up their kilts in unison, to gentlemen jumping from tables onto a dance floor full of ladies to “its raining men” or doing ‘la conga’ right through the hotels’ kitchen! But one is thing is certain, always in good fun. 

Then there’s the side of eazi-k that no-one sees; apart from the hard-work, the rehearsals, the preparation, the travelling there are also the adventures that form part of every gig;  the mad dashes down narrow cobbled streets with a mammoth van trying to find an obscure venue, a power-cut in front of a 5000 strong crowd; a herd of cows partaking the wedding party at a ‘rustic’ venue; almost getting electrocuted because of a venue’s dodgy electrics  it’s all happened! I could write a book about our antics; I’m sure it would be a bestseller!”

Meeting people and understanding their cultures is also a bonus when playing in such an outfit, as Bride & Groom from different nationalities will often have protocols to be observed. It is here that eazi-k excel and are experts in the territory, as they indeed go to incredible lengths to ensure that their guests are entertained no matter what may happen or which ever miniscule detail is important on their wedding day. The key to this is preparation beforehand, both with the venue and clients to establish their exact needs and expectations for each event.

Been natively bilingual, eazi-k can easily adapt and entertain any audience, in almost any style of music, for example at a recent wedding they played an Aerosmith rock number followed by a Frank Sinatra swing tune and Latin salsa later on in the night. These are always performed with the genuineness and exactitude as if it where the original. This enables the band to play for all kinds of different occasions in tune to their customers needs.

So remember next time you see a van whizz by full of equipment with three eager musicians upfront do remember this article!
