Getting to Know... James Tudball of The White Tree

What’s your favourite part of your job?
Getting to rock the Grease Megamix at every wedding The White Tree Band play at.  No we don’t do that.  Probably just the versatility of it all.  One moment I’m editing a wedding film, the next thing I’m playing drums at a wedding.  It’s good fun. 

What are you reading at the moment?
Just another one of the many biographies on John Lennon. 

What are you lusting after at the moment?
Sleep.  It’s 6:45am and the builders have arrived.

Top three songs on your play list?
Probably Empire State of Mind (if the couple book our rapper), 99 Luft Balloons, and This Old Love by Lior. 

What is your favourite moment during a wedding?
The dance sets, when everyone let’s their hair down and has a good time.

Who inspires you?

Richard Branson, currently Anna Bligh, and pretty much any African American jazz musician.

Favourite Cocktail?
Long Island Ice Tea’s at the moment.  They can pack a punch.

What does it take to impress you?

What is the best piece of advice you were ever given?
My grandfather would always say “Patience is a virtue my lad”.  I like to remind myself of that.

Favourite way to spend a Sunday?
If the weather is good, just getting outdoors – perhaps a Sunday session with mates at a place like Belgian Beer Garden or the beach in general.

Black Tie or Casual?
Hmm... What context? I think black tie looks sharp.

Your suggestion for a new name for ‘Hens party’?
Literal suggestion = “Drunk Chicks Gone Wild”  More marketable suggestion = “The Little Secrets Evening”

Your favourite hostess gift to give?
Oh geez.  What is a hostess gift?

What’s the best gift you have ever received?
Probably a gigantic advent calendar my girlfriend gave to me when she went overseas.  She made it herself and it count down the days until her return. 

Three words that describe you best. 

Dedicated, bold and friendly. 

Thanks so much for sharing with us today James. We are very much looking forward to having The White Tree at the Portobello Bride Boutique Wedding Market in Melbourne on March 26 and 27!
