I was once at a wedding where cake disaster struck. The cake was near a door, which banged in the breeze and toppled the cake off the table seconds before the cutting ceremony. We played for the guests for an extra hour, while the chefs at the venue magically restored the cake to pristine condition!
As musicians, we often work in close collaboration with the caterers, sometimes timing the music to finish just as the soufflé is served, sometimes playing for extra time to keep guests entertained if the caterers are running a little late.

I was once playing at a wedding breakfast in a marquee, when a violent thunderstorm hit and the power failed. Disaster for the Outside Caterers who were using electric cooking facilities. We played for an extra hour and a half, entertaining the guests, until the power was restored and the outside caterers were able to recover the situation. The end result was delicious - I had some!
