Weddings

First of all…congratulations!

Read on to learn more about the musical options and packages we offer for the different sections of your day:

YOUR CEREMONY

Being played down the aisle is a moving experience for our couples and their guests.

After performing your entrance song, we’ll entertain your guests during the signing of the register before playing during your exit (woohoo)!

Most couples also then opt to have us perform during their drinks reception.

We are also able to quote to include a performance during guest arrival.

Most popular line-up options:

– Vocalist & Guitarist (Duo)
– String Trio
– String Quartet

DRINKS RECEPTION

The champagne has been popped and you’re enjoying your first moments as a married couple, surrounded by the people you love the most. We offer a range of options to help elevate your atmosphere. Our priority will be to stay at an appropriate volume to allow your guests to enjoy each other’s company.

Most popular line-up options:

– Acoustic Duo, Trio, Four or Five Piece
– String Trio or Quartet

Repertoire options:

As well as our song list, we also offer a jazz repertoire. Please ask for details.

Our most popular approach is to start chilled and become gradually more upbeat during the course of your drinks reception. We are however open to any tone you’d like to set.

WEDDING BREAKFAST

It’s time for your guests to take their seats before you’re announced into the room to their rapturous (and quite possibly raucous) applause. Provide an elegant backdrop to dinner with one of our live line-ups.

Most popular line-up options:

– Vocalist & Guitarist (Duo)
– Vocalist, Guitarist and Acoustic Drummer (Trio)
– Vocalist, Guitarist, Acoustic Drummer and Bassist (4 piece)
– String Trio
– String Quartet

The five piece (includes keys player) is a fantastic option for larger events and spaces.

Repertoire options:

EVENING RECEPTION

Book one of our evening bands and enjoy a discount of up to 50% on the duo.

When its time to get the party started, we’ve got you covered. Your evening entertainment will depend on everything from the size of your wedding and venue, to your musical preferences. As a group of versatile professional session musicians, we’re able to offer everything from acoustic three pieces to fully electric seven-piece show bands.

Our most popular options include:

– Acoustic Trio or Quartet (acoustic guitar and acoustic/reduced drum set up)
– Party Band (electric guitar and full drunk kit)
– Seven Piece Show Band (with horn section)

Repertoire:

For those choosing acoustic options this usually means starting midbeat and gradually raising the tempo. Those choosing the party band/fully electric band are usually looking for two high energy sets to keep their guests dancing/burning off those wedding cake calories!

First dance:

We’ll be delighted to learn your first dance for you and to announce you on to the dancefloor.
