What a month for Derby Wedding Band ‘Dammit Jack’


Firstly ‘Badminton Horse Trials’ in early may to kick off the month..

Badminton Horse Trials- Dammit JackDammit Jack were super excited when they heard that they had booked to play at one of the most prstigious horse trial events in the UK, in the VIP tent no less!

The gigs spanned from Thursday to Saturday with early evening slots followed by an incredible DJ set.

“The weather was absolutely superb for all of the three gigs we played, it was really difficult to finish at 8pm and not join in with the parting for the first two gigs because spirits were so high however we needed to save ourselfves so we would last the whole event haha” – Jack Morritt


It was our first time working with ‘Gorilla Events’ and what a treat!
