Why not get in touch about a combination deal?
Picture this, a jazz trio adding a touch of sophistication to your drinks reception, then joining more players later on to kick the evening celebrations into action with a full party band.
Also, how about a pianist or small ensemble playing a few of your favourite songs for your marriage ceremony?
Where necessary, a professional PA system will accompany the bands as standard. The size of this ranges depending on the size of the venue.
