Great music will uplift your spirits as well as those of your families and guests. You will need music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (and perhaps rehearsal dinner). We can offer you as much or as little as you will need for your special day.
You and your guests will be able to have conversations over our music – we play at a reasonable, comfortable volume.
And yes, your family and friends will all dance the night away!
Music considerations for your wedding ceremony:
Prelude Music (as your guests arrive and await the ceremony)
Bridal Party processional(s)
Would you like your music to be traditional in style using classical music?
(there are many other possibilities)
Would you rather your ceremony music to be a bit more upbeat and ‘jazzy’? There are hundreds of possibilities of jazz standards by such artists as Frank Sinatra, Cole Porter, and George Gershwin.
Another option is using music from artists like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, James Taylor, Van Morrison (Can’t Help Falling In Love, Crazy Love, In My Life, All You Need Is Love).
Wedding Cocktail Hour or Cocktail Party
For your cocktail hour you will want start the party with upbeat, fun background music while your guests enjoy a drink and their hors d’oeuvres as they visit with each other.
We can offer you music options here as well. You can go with a mix of jazz standards and show tunes from the 1930s and 40s.
If you want to go in a different direction, we can provide music from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s as well (be sure to see our sample song list on the repertoire page).
You can also request a mix of the various styles.
