Mt. Pleasant – Police were called to a Mt. Pleasant clubhouse last Sunday night after festivities turned violent. According to police reports, a riot ensued when the cover band hired to play at a wedding refused to play “Sweet Home Alabama” for the fourth time.
Several bridesmaids and the mother of the groom reportedly assaulted Danny Borland, the lead singer of local cover band That Just Happened, which had been hired to provide entertainment at the reception.
“I mean, come on,” exclaimed Borland. “We had already played the song three times; twice in a row at one point. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Skynyrd, but enough is enough.” Before being accosted by several women wielding high heel shoes and at least one votive candle, Borland had tried to placate the throng.
“I offered to play the Macarena, the Electric Slide, even some Hootie & the Blowfish, but these harpies just kept chanting “Woo! Turn it up!” After law enforcement calmed things down, the party continued, with That Just Happened quickly winning back the crowd with it’s spirited rendition of “Goovy Kind of Love.”
