Having the right music for the first dance at a wedding is important to get the party off to a swinging start, especially if the couple can afford a live band.
"First Dance Album' so if you can't afford to have a real live band at your wedding, you can simply play this album, if it's got what you want.
"The idea of 'The First Dance Album' came about towards the end of 2010. We had played around 50 weddings that year, and had been asked to play and learn most of the first dances. We would always do this to the highest standard, and it seemed a shame to leave it at that (often the first dances are one off songs - unique to the bride and groom). The band had the strongest line-up, live, and in the studio, and we had recorded and released countless tracks with our original band Redwood - tracks that were played on TV and radio worldwide. So we figured we could apply that knowledge and experience to recording an album for Rollercoaster. The aim was to create a unified sound. And hopefully we achieved that. Thanks to the happy couples of 2010-2011 for the inspiration - it was great fun recording. Volume 2, here we come..."The key to the Rollercoaster sound lies in a band that have been making music together for the past 20 years. Alistair and Rob met in school, formed a band called Redwood, which Chris later joined on drums. Redwood landed a major record deal, toured the UK, released albums worldwide, national press, TV etc.
All the songs are performed by the band, and here's the Tracklist (with original artist to remind you their origins):-
1.Rule The World - Take That
2.One Day Like This - Elbow
3.Better - Tom Baxter / Boyzone
4.Stay Together - Al Green
5.Be Mine - David Grey
6.Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
7.Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles
8.Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
9.Hungry Eyes - Eric Carmen
10.Better Together - Jack Johnson

12.Can’t Take My Eyes Off You - Andy Williams
13.Groovy Kind Of Love - Phil Collins
14.Use Somebody - Kings Of Leon
15.Pride And Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughan
I think this is a pretty good list. Even for a romantic dinner or special night in.
