Live music at a wedding really enhances the atmosphere. From a choir at the ceremony, beautiful jazz or piano for drinks reception and a rockin covers band that are experts in keeping a mixed-age crowd happy. We work with many bands and musicians and some examples are offered below from a traditional string quartet through to quirky vintage bands. Please contact us with your wedding entertainment requirements.
The Cocktail Trio - Sax, Guitar and Double Bass
The Cocktail Trio comprise Sax, Guitar and Double Bass and are ideal for background music during a drinks reception or ceremony. Designed to enhance any atmosphere without being intrusive, they offer a sophisticated mix of Standards, Jazz and Classics. You will be pleased to hear that they do not take the attention away from a bride and groom or party host. The sun hats are optional but very useful on a summers day!
The elegant sound of a String Quartet
We work with a number of String Quartets which offers highly skilled, professional musicians who love making music with each other.
Live music will introduce a scintillating extra dimension to any occasion. A string based quartet will make any occasion a special occasion. Every performance by our String Quartets are a bespoke event, designed to suit your needs exactly. They will help you choose music to suit the atmosphere that you want to create: romantic, dramatic, relaxed, informal, stately. Repertoire is enormous and varied from classical favourites such as Bach’s serene Air on the G String to jazz like Pennies from Heaven, Makin’ Whoopee and Let’s Do It to contemporary classics including Bad Romance - Lady Gaga and Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve.
Tickle the ivories with a great pianist.
A Pianist is perfect entertainment for a drinks reception or dinner and ideal if you are working to a budget. We have a number of Pianists available, and can even hire you a piano either up-right or grand and deliver it to your venue (if not, they can bring their own portable piano and PA) Different Pianists offer different repertoires, also, we have pianist located in various parts of the country.
If you are interested in receiving a quote for a pianist we need to know your venue location and your preferred repertoire i.e. Classics, Jazz, Rat Pack or a wedding pianist that offers all of that plus some contemporary artists including Coldplay and Oasis.
Depending on your location, we can also hire you a grand or up-right piano for the pianist to play on - add a candelabra for extra Bling!
Gypsies of Bohemia - Acoustic group like you've never heard before.
Drawing inspiration from the legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, the band capture all the Parisienne charm and sophistication of the Hot Club de France whilst putting their own unique spin on hits by Britney Spears, Blondie, Girls Aloud and even Iron Maiden.
Foot stomping rhythms, exhilarating arrangements and virtuosic lead guitar lines combine to produce a sound that is authentic, unique and highly entertaining.
ACOUSTIC, WALKING AND PLAYING 5 PIECE.
5 piece roaming acoustic band performing feel good hits from the 1950s to modern day songs performed in a fun, acoustic style. Like a walking Mariachi band they require no amplification or stage, preferring to mingle with the audience - serenading, flattering, surprising, and seducing their listeners as they go. Previous venues and events include residency band at Wimbledon Tennis Championships, The Ritz, The Langham, Hampton Court Palace, Grosvenor House, The Ham Yard Hotel.
They can play during any drinks reception inside or out or for a party in the evening with additional sound system.
Brilliant fun and a WoW factor.
Festival Trio - DJ, Sax and Bongos / Percussionist.
The Festival Trio comprise DJ, Sax & Percussion (Bongo player) offering a live experience to a standard DJ set. Combined, they play fantastic music that everyone can enjoy and rock out to. How does it work? The DJ plays to the crowd and Sax and Bongos play to the DJ. They improvise in a creative and interesting way. The Sax offers melodic harmonies and sounds great on Soul, Motown, Disco and Dance/House/Club Classics. The percussion plays a mix of Bongos, Cowbells & Drums and works well on most genres. Like our DJ sets they will play for 5 hours without stopping - although the Bongo players hands can get a bit sore by the end of the night.
A review by a recent client
"Thank you once again for playing at our wedding. You guys played an amazing set - we loved it and so many of our guests said they thought the sax and bongos was a great twist. The highlight for me was watching you guys jam along to bhangra! And you even played 'You can call me Al', a personal fave of mine. Loved it."
