And the snow came tumbling down!

Have you been out on the mountain, yet.? Have you experienced a bluebird morning which makes you feel like any worries are far behind you and all is right in the world..? Have you had the ski or snowboard this week that lifted your spirits, followed by an après where you danced your boots off and lifted other well known, local spirits (hello, Génépi!) as you said santé to your band, DJ, bar team and fellow mountain-lovers..? If you answered yes to any of those questions,  then you’ll definitely be making the most of your ski trip, season abroad or exquisite extension to your beautiful abode in the Alps.

What a wonderful, snowy start to 2019 it’s been – the stuff’s been falling thick and fast! The mountains, trees and forests look stunning, animal tracks can be spotted from your window, the roadside or when travelling to the top of your next run in a ski lift or bubble – or even when you’re headed for an off-piste adventure!

However, the roads and travelling conditions for musicians and DJs can be a little less dreamy, but travelling through various kinds of precipitation is all part of what our incredibly talented guys do to ensure you get your daily ski inspired party and relaxed hotel gig or private chalet musical experience. The professionalism of the Après Ski Bands artists is second to none!

Gigging the ultimate après ski party can be very chilly work, but the energy from the crowd, the music – and several on stage heaters or a roaring hotel fire – makes for an uplifting gig, each and every time.

Quality musicianship? Check. Snow covered back drop of mountains, slopes and multi coloured ski gear? Check. All the hits? Check. The skill and experience to create dance floor me mories for life? CHECK! The Après Ski Bands artists know their craft.




Bang on Trend! The Trends Party Band continue to rock the après ski scene on their 2019 tour..!

As the snow continues to fall at an incredible rate and the resort of Méribel continues to be the well loved and well skied heart of The Three Valleys, The Trends continue to take over The Alps with their new found love for après ski partying!

Hailing from Cardiff and established since 2012, this group of amazingly talented musicians, with a clear passion for performance, have a repertoire of music perfect for any and every occasion. And their debut in these beautiful mountains has confirmed that The Trends know how to throw the ultimate après ski party. Offering some of the best tracks through 50’s Rock & Blues, 60’s Soul, Motown, 70’s Disco & Funk & 80’s pop and rock classics aa well as all the current chart music and modern hits, this group appeals to all ages on the dance floor!
Christina’s voice is second to none and having learnt her craft at a young age from an equally talented all-singing, all-performing mum, she can take any and every audience member on a journey with her from the first song, right up to the last note. Oh, and look out for when she gets on the sax and jams along with her fellow bandmates! This is one woman with serious sax appeal. With Phil on drums, Tom on bass and Gareth on guitar – the shredding genius who will have the crowd chanting his name the moment he begins a solo – The Trends are one incredible party band you simply cannot miss.
Continuing to play at some of the biggest and best après ski venues on their tour, you can see The Trends at the following venues for the rest of February…
