David and his bands can provide quality live music to make your special day even more memorable. The music you choose for your wedding will provide both the soundtrack and emotional context for different parts of the event.
Having played music for over a hundred weddings David can guide you through the process to selecting music for different parts of your ceremony, and will offer friendly, communicative service to help with your query or booking.
Traditionally, at a wedding, live music can provide a musical backdrop for any of these parts of the event: The ceremony; the reception; dinner, and; the post-dinner dance. You may like to choose a special favourite song for key parts of the event: At a ceremony, there is often a song for the ‘bridal entry’, and the ‘signing of the registry’. At a reception or post dinner dance, there is often a song chosen as the ‘first dance’/’bridal waltz’.
If you’re considering booking a band for a wedding, some of the questions it’s helpful to consider, are: What is the date of the wedding? How many hours would you ideally like live music for, and for which parts of the event (see above)? Do you want to create a mellow or up-beat atmosphere? Are you catering to mixed-generations or a few friends? Where is the venue; what size is it, and what sized band can fit in the space? What is your budget for live music?
David can provide quality music for your event - from a duo to a ten-piece band (though three to six piece bands are most commonly chosen). Our jazz act “Jazztrix” can provide gentle, melodic and romantic sounds for your ceremony, reception or dinner with a repertoire of jazz classics, or get swingin’ and up-beat for your reception or post-dinner dance. Our soul/funk band “Soul Porpoise” is ideal for a post-dinner dance or reception with a selection of soul/funk/R’n’B/Mowtown classics (though can also do ‘stripped back’ acoustic versions as a solo, duo or trio for a ceremony or during dinner, if desired).
Please contact me if you’d like to see our repertoire sheet. We play a classic selection in either of the jazz or soul/funk styles mentioned above. When considering booking us for your wedding, please bear in mind that we are not a top-40 covers band or a DJ, though we can recommend some acts who fit this pocket, or at least point you in the right direction to finding them.
I look forward to helping you with your enquiries and to making your special day even more so.
