  • The infamous Blackbeard not-best-men's speech | Blackbeards Tea Party
    the room can be in total agreement when we say that Laura looks absolutely beautiful today A solid 10 out of 10 Pause for applause and wolf whistles Dave on the other hand nil points but maybe you ll improve as the evening progresses and you drink more rum Martin Most of us met Dave when we first formed Blackbeard s Tea Party Guitar drums bass and vocals were already sorted All we were missing was a feisty fiddle player Enter Laura Yom We really wanted Laura to join our band but she would only play if she could bring her drummer boyfriend along This was one more drummer than we needed or wanted but in what would be the first of many instances Laura ended up getting her own way Dave now that you have finally tied the knot expect this to happen more and more often Martin It was during our first rehearsal that we became aware of Dave s incredible optimism and knack for succinctly summarising the events around him He remarked Well I thought this was going to be rubbish but it might actually be quite good Tim Being a sometime function band we see a lot of weddings a lot of great buffets a lot of beautiful dresses a lot of great speeches by best men who had more than 2 weeks to prepare Yom interrupting We re not the best men Tim so Dave and Laura believe us when we say with great authority We thought this wedding was going to be rubbish but it might actually be quite good Stuart Dave is the most forgetful and absent minded man we have ever met It s easier to talk about the days when Dave hasn t left something essential behind You name it and he has lost it his clothes his wallet his keys his phone his Djembe How do you lose a Djembe Martin Recently on a flight to Spain Dave lost his passport He had his passport when he got onto the plane he had his passport when he sat down in his seat he didn t move from his seat and he was in an enclosed space 30 000 feet up in the air When we touched down Dave had lost his passport It turned out that Dave had put it my pocket Stuart However our absolute favourite thing that Dave has ever forgotten in all the time we have known him was the time he forgot to ask us to do a best men speech until two weeks before his wedding Yom interrupting It s not a best man s speech Tim So I bet you re all wondering how Dave possibly managed to win a woman like Laura Let us explain How to woo your bride in five easy steps by David Sidney Boston Martin Step One Attract the female s attention Taking his cue more from the behind of a baboon than the tail of a peacock Dave

  • Y Viva España! | Blackbeards Tea Party
    the same hotel meaning you were likely to bump into Steve Knightley propping up the bar sipping a sangria or Mike Harding oiling himself up on a sun lounger Our first day was gig free giving us time to aclimatise and explore the surroundings The hotel had 4 main performance areas plus two bars a swimming pool and a games area which doubled as a music session room Plus the hotel was just a short stroll from a glorious sandy beach Having settled with a few beers and a mojito we went about challenging our friends Steamchicken to a pool tournament and absolutely thrashed them The next day drunk on victory and San Miguel we began squaring up to The Demon Barbers and soon found that we d unknowingly entered into an inter band volley ball grudge match Stuart had played a bit of volley ball at school but the rest of us had no clue what we were doing The Demons are formidable opponents There were more of them for a start and they re all in fairly good shape Plus Damien is fiercely competitive In comparison we looked like a shambling bunch of pasty miscreants The match went to 3 sets and the final set came right down to the wire It was match point to us and Stuart tapped it over the net It looked as though it was going out and then all of a sudden a huge gust of wind blew it back in It was a close contest but a glorious victory for BTP nonetheless On Saturday morning Tim jumped fully clothed into the pool in a bid to relieve his hangover Soon we were all joining him bombing and throwing each other in It wasn t heated and despite being sunny and warm
