Last week, the television program Entertainment Tonight was able to catch a quick interview with party band leader, Greg Denard, at JFK International Airport as he and his band, Soul Solution, returned to New York city after entertaining Sir Paul and his wedding guests last week in Ireland. The booking came as a complete surprise to the New Jersey rhythm & blues band. When the band left for Ireland, they thought they were off to entertain at some corporate gig. Mr. Denard told ET:"They really enjoyed themselves. It was just a fabulous event. They partied like we were hanging out in our backyard.This wasn't his first meeting with Sir Paul. Back in October, following the Concert for New York City, Sir Paul donned a policeman's hat and joined Soul Solution on stage to sing a few songs at a post-concert party. (see October 21, 2001)
"It was an incredible experience to perform with a living legend. On top of all that, Paul McCartney - I just gotta tell everybody this - Paul McCartney and Heather Mills are two of the nicest people that you would ever want to meet."
