Your wedding day is an important event into which you'll put a lot of time, effort and planning. That's why we aim to make booking your wedding entertainment as easy and simple as possible.
From the most intimate evening party with just your closest friends and family, to a full-on, all-day blowout, The Distance can provide great entertainment at an individually tailored price, sending your guests home with songs in their hearts and blisters on their feet!
>> Ceremony <<
Your guests will love the warm acoustic arrangements we perform as they're seated, and when the moment arrives we'll play your favourite song as you walk down the aisle.
Music over the signing of the register is a great touch, and of course we'll play you and your guests out with style, playing something a little more upbeat
>> Drinks reception <<
Drinks Receptions are a fantastic way to break the ice on your wedding day, giving your early guests a chance to mix and mingle and loosening them up for the evening party ahead. It's a chance to chat, laugh and catch up with friends, and adding a touch of live acoustic music to the background makes a delightful talking point.
We provide the musical accompaniment by pitching our performance to match the energy of the room; the ebb and flow of conversational volume gives us a great indiction of what songs to perform, and whether they should be performed in an upbeat, lively way, or a more laid-back, lounge music style.
>> Wedding Breakfast <<
Your wedding breakfast should be just as entertaining as your reception and live music while you dine is one of life’s little luxuries.
Each song is lovingly arranged for guitar and vocals, giving a wonderfully stripped-back, evocative feel.
We keep it nice and quiet during the wedding breakfast so your guests don’t have to struggle to chat – although there have been occasions where the audience has been so responsive that we couldn’t help but rock it up a little :D
>> First dance <<
If you want something really special to accompany those first precious moments of your life to come, We’re can learn your first dance either with percussion (using our loop pedals) so that it sounds just the way you’re used to hearing it, or acoustically with guitars and vocal harmonies, Feel free to browse our current set list for suggestions or alternatively we can play your song from a playlist.
>> Party <<
Our usual evening performance consists of 120 minutes of live music which can be split any way you like. Generally 2x60 min sets is ideal but we’re totally flexible with our set lengths and timing.
Our full repertoire is available on request and contains dozens of great songs from all genres and eras including Rock, Pop, Soul and motownSwing/BigBand and fully acoustic.
We’ll choose the best songs for your day based on the age, gender and mood of the crowd and can switch effortlessly between styles during our performance.
>> Background music <<
As live musicians we LOVE working with a professional DJ, So if you haven't already booked one, we can recommend dozens of amazing, hard-working professionals that will make your evening reception a night to remember!
If your budget won’t allow this we can offer an automated playlist as an additional extra to cover the gaps in between the live music until 12am and can also take care of your First Dance. If you’re the type who likes to pick the songs yourself, then feel free to send us a list (no later than two months before your wedding day), and we’ll build a playlist containing the songs you love.
