Après Ski Bands – Rocking the PapaKåta Henley-On-Thames open day in style!

With over 400 guests planning to experience the PapaKåta Autumn Open Weekend at the beautiful Stonor Park & Gardens in Henley-On-Thames on 11th, 12th & 13th October, industry insiders and clients-to-be wanting to celebrate their unique special occasions in style, can look no further than what the PapaKåta team has to offer. From weddings to parties, festivals to corporate events, the Sperry® & Tipi tents have everything you require to make your event one to remember.

PapaKåta have worked on over 3000 successful events since 2006, so it’s safe to say that they know a thing or two about tents.

Over the years, their tents have graced manicured lawns, rolling hills, picturesque valleys and wide-open vistas. They’ve taken everything the U.K’s wonderful climate can throw at them – a bit like our artists at Après Ski Bands..! From the deepest alpine snow to the warmest mid summer sunshine, our musicians and DJs have experienced the lot as they’ve honed their craft at après ski parties, festivals and weddings – making them the ideal in special occasion music. Stages with a mountain view, bars, clubs, hotels, yachts, chateaux, stately homes and indeed, PapaKåta Sperry® & Tipi tents have all hosted our talented artists.

Based on a traditional Scandinavian design, their Tipis (or Teepees/tepees) are built to withstand the harshest weather. And with extras like wood-burning fires, reindeer hides, and heaters to keep your tootsies toasty, you and your guests will stay warm whatever the weather.

An icon of the Hamptons wedding and party scene, their new Sperry® Tents are hot news on the other side of the pond. Lovingly hand-crafted in Massachusetts, the Sperry® Tents’ oyster coloured canvas and iconic canopy ooze a timeless, graceful elegance.

PapaKåta believe in peace of mind, so where possible their tents are made with natural materials. What’s more, after each event they plant enough trees to compensate for any carbon released during the transit, installation and packing up process.

As PapaKåta’s entertainment providers, Après Ski Bands grabbed the opportunity to program the best in DJ music for their Autumn Open Weekend at Henley’s Stonor Park & Gardens. Our very own DJ Al Dente, aka Ali Wright – one half of this winter ski season’s newest and most eclectic Alps duos, Tchaï & Ali and bassist extraordinaire from the exceptional Al Jones Band – was the man for this gig!

Not only has Ali performed as a professional musician throughout the world, he’s DJ’d at mountain festivals on the slopes, Côte d’Azure yachts, weddings, parties and 5* hotel club residencies. So what this guys doesn’t know about UK, international music and every genres in between, suitable for all ages, isn’t worth knowing! You can see and hear Ali – DJ Al Dente – at the PapaKåta open weekend.
