Weddings are a very large part of what we do and it is always a delight to be involved in this most special day. There are so many ways a jazz band can enhance the atmosphere of a wedding, from playing in the foyer as you arrive back to the hotel from the church to playing in the actual ceremony itself (whether that be in a church or at the hotel) or playing as background entertainment as you socialize in the afternoon -relaxed music as you enjoy your meal or as a main attraction in the evening.

Because every wedding is unique we work closely with the bride and groom to be sure that they receive exactly what they would like, from the song for the first dance to the exact style and types of songs to be played.

Just a big thank you for your excellent entertainment at our wedding last Saturday at Coniston, everybody thoroghly enjoyed your performance and it really made our reception extra special. Hopefully we shall see you again in the future, any excuse to listen to that wonderful music again! Thanks from both of us!'
