"Thank you so much Sheila, the band was fantastic and EXACTLY what we wanted!"

Pre Meal Drinks

A soloist, duo or trio is perfect for this part of the day.

The Wedding Breakfast

Live music for the wedding breakfast has now become very popular - there will often be jazz pianists, string quartets, harpists or even flamenco guitarists. It's always nice to have music while everyone is eating and chatting as long as the music isn't intrusive. Most of the time musicians just go with the crowd: playing more mellow music if the mood is relaxed and laid back or lively, up tempo choices as the atmosphere changes. One of the most important things to be aware of is whether the music is interfering with the conversation of the wedding guests: if it is, then there's something wrong. For most weddings you need the music to carry on right up to the speeches and that's where it finishes until the evening reception.

The Evening Reception

Trying to please everyone with the choice of music can be difficult. However, for weddings, large and small, a jazz & swing band can create a fantastic atmosphere and enhance the style and sophistication of the day - and from our experience, people of all ages love the timeless, classic sound of this genre. Don't forget our fantastic Disco option too!


I would just like to say from both Hannah and myself a massive thank you for playing at our wedding last weekend! All the guests had a fantastic day and there were plenty of comments flying around about the 'amazing band'!
And from our side we thought that the style of music was perfect for the setting and tone of the day, you all sounded brilliant and we will definitely be recommending you to family and friends for the future! You were so accommodating throughout, helping to set up additional equipment when required so that the two of us and our guests could enjoy the day!
So again a massive thank you, and please pass on our gratitude to the other members of the band!
Kind Regards,
Matthew & Hannah"
