Live Evening Reception Music...

 

So, you've spent the morning in hair and makeup, you've walked down the aisle and exchanged vows, schmoozed your way round the champagne reception and had your fill of the wedding breakfast. That means it's time let your hair down with a fantastic evening reception packed with dancing, drinking, laughter and live music.

Your evening reception is arguable the most memorable part of your wedding day and it's important to get right. But contrary to popular belief, there are only three ingredients you need for the perfect evening reception: Food, Drink and Music.

Even the most lavish, expensive wedding reception is, at it's heart, just a party. And once you realise that it becomes a lot less stressful.

We provide great live entertainment for you and your guests and we work around the other elements like the buffet, first dance and last orders at the bar to ensure the evening runs smoothly. Our live sets normally consist of 2x60min performances with a break in between. These can be split into 3x40min sets if you'd prefer to space out the live music element of the evening and cover those gaps with a disco (which we can provided at an additional cost, if required).

 

We have a massive repertoire of songs from all genres, and we generally aim to keep the live evening reception music as upbeat and dancey as possible. Early on, your guests might need to have a drink or two before they're fully ready to get up and boogie, so we try to involve the crowd as much as possible, encouraging them to sing along and even letting them take a chorus or two if they're up for it!
