Weddings

Why book a live party band for your wedding?

A DJ will play all your favourite songs, but there really is nothing like hearing them played by a professional live band.

Getting that wow factor with blazing horn lines, tight grooves and amazing interaction between the musicians and the crowd is truly something to behold!

We always tailor our sets to each wedding individually so you've got  that personal touch and welcome requests (and vetoes) from our repertoire list.
Of course in practical terms what this really means is that you don't ever have to have a song played that you don't like!

Jewish Weddings

We've performed for a fair few Jewish weddings and are able to cater for everything from music during the ceremony, toasts at dinner, Israeli dancing through to the evening party. As part of our standard performance package, our format would usually consist of a 20 minute set for Israeli dancing before dinner and then up to 2 x 50 minute sets of our standard material later on in the evening.

Here are the songs that we perform in our Israeli dancing set:

Siman Tov Mazel Tov • Tzena Tzena • Hava Nagila • Shalom Alechem • Moshiach • Ose Chalom • Mayim Dance

Background jazz during drinks reception or dinner

Our musicians are fully trained pop and jazz specialists meaning we often provide smaller jazz ensembles to perform during dinner or the drinks reception to add a little bit of atmosphere to the occasion.

We offer great discounts on this too when booked alongside one of the swing bands for the evening party.

The First Dance

The moment you’ve either been most excited about or dreading! One way or another it’s going to be memorable, and there’s nothing quite like having a live band provide the soundtrack to it.

We get many special song requests and it is very rare that we are not able to perform it. Usually the requests are for slower ballad-type songs, but we have been known to open with a cracking party tune too!

If a first dance song-choice is not something you’ve really thought about, how about some of these? We do jazz tunes too...

Wedding Ceremony

Often we get asked if we can also play for the wedding ceremony. Usually we would provide a solo pianist or a small background jazz ensemble - depending on what sort of music you're looking for.

This is perfect for having that special song played as you walk down the isle - and also during the signing of the register and as you leave as a newly married couple.

Music during breaks

We always have generic playlists on hand to put on during our breaks or before we start the performance. We have playlists for background and/or dancing - and we use a crossfade setting so there aren't any gaps.

You are also welcome to supply us with a spotify playlist beforehand (or an iPod) if you prefer.

Wedding Venues

We've performed at a variety of venues - from pubs to palaces and gardens to grand manors. We will happily perform almost anywhere, on or off stage, inside or outdoors (weather permitting).

DJ

If you’d rather have someone manning the controls during the breaks of the band and/or if you want to have more music for dancing after the band have finished, then you might want to consider adding a DJ to the booking.

We have several professionals on the books who are all very good at judging a crowd and finding a nice balance of songs that everyone can enjoy.

They'll also be in touch before the day to discuss the sort of music you like.
