If you are looking to put live music at the heart of your big day, then you’ll definitely want to find your dream daytime wedding entertainment.
Nothing can raise the atmosphere of the day than some well chosen live music. It’s a great way to create the ambience you want, welcome your guests before the evenings celebrations, and show to others that you are going above and beyond to make your big day memorable for everyone.
That being said, where do you start? What are your options? What will create the right atmosphere? That’s where we can help!
What Are Your Choices?
When it comes to daytime entertainment we’re usually talking about some type of background music. Something engaging, but not overbearing. Here are some of the most common choices:
Solo Performer | Acoustic Duo | Acoustic Band | Wandering Band | Jazz Band
Now it’s hard to go wrong with any of these if you choose a quality supplier (like us!) It’s more about choosing the style and energy that’s right for you. All of the performers mentioned can be utilised at a drinks reception, sit down dinner or outside stage.
This is a great choice if you want sophistication and subtlety. A well chosen pianist, harpist or guitarist performing tasteful instrumental pieces is the perfect balance.
Their repertoire can range from strictly classical, to jazz and everything in-between. For us there is no one better at this than Rachel, our solo harpist.
This is our most popular choice by far and we have several fantastic duos to recommend to you. If you want a diverse range of songs that’s going to lift the mood, this is what you want to go for. Playing a mixture of popular songs with male or female vocals and guitar or piano accompaniment this is our go to package for daytime entertainment.
Also all of our evening bands offer this as a bolt on option making it very cost effective for you to have both daytime and evening entertainment – yay!
Our Hit Replay duo is formed from our best selling band Heatwave and makes for the perfect daytime and evening package.
Acoustic Band / Wandering Band
So if you like the sound of an acoustic duo, but want more punch this is what we’d suggest. Adding in some percussion and a saxophone will create a spectacle that is guaranteed to entertain. If you’d really like to turn it up, book a wandering band who will walk around your venue as they perform, getting up close and personal with guests. But be warned, you might struggle to get them to sit down for their meal as they’ll be having too much fun!
If this sounds like you check out our Hit Replay band, available both stationary and wandering.
If you’d like a touch of class and a gentle start to your event, there is nothing better than a jazz band. They’ll play everything from crooner to standards even bop (if you let them) and they’ll help everyone relax and melt into the evening. Our in house jazz band, The Statesmen are some of the best players on the London music scene and will provide the perfect authentic jazz ambiance for your event.
