About us

 

Originally starting as a clarinet quartet which performed as wedding quartet, funerals as well as back ground music for dinners, retirement and garden parties, cocktail parties in addition to classical concerts. As our reputation grew we quickly expanded into other musical ensembles such as our Woodwind Quintet and SIlvio Wind Quartet and Saxophone Quartet. All of our groups have been created by Music with Reeds members so you get a vetted group of musicians we know and trust. 

 

Gaining a positive reputation for being flexible and adaptable also gave us the addition of our Jazz groups:- The River City Stomper, M 'w' R Jazzers and our new 1920's band Gatsby and the Polecats.
