Silvio Quartet

Silvio gives a very clear and crisp classical sound, while at the same time has the versatility for all other musical styles. Currently our most popular group especially with brides wishing for Pachelbels Cannon or Wedding March by Wagner (Here comes the bride) to walk down the aisle.

Klaritet Quartet

Performing with 4 clarinets they can perform anything that a string quartet can and with extensive range of styles from Classical to Jazz they are ideal for all occasions.

Vivo Sax Quartet

If you are after a church organ effect and is great for music such as Bach's Air on a G string and Albanoni's Adagio or a hymn.

Cinqo Wind Quintet

Our 5 piece woodwind quintet is great for a big sound and is ideal if you are after any of the wedding marches for your big day.

Welcome and Drinks receptions

 

Reception music can be an ideal way to entertain your wedding guests while you are having pictures taken, signing of the register.

 

Along side the ceremony music most use us for background music before a meal/during drinks receptions, background music to your main meal.

 

In addition to ceremony music all of the above ensembles are suitable for reception music, playing in all musical styles and can normally do requests given enough notice. 

 

If however you know you would like background jazz music then M 'w' R Jazzers or River City Stompers would be a great option. Playing a selection of music from the 1920s onwards they arn't over powering so your guests can still talk to each other with out difficulty while still being entertained. 

 

Evening Entertainment

 

Gatsby and the Pole Cats are a great option for themed evening entertainment. Avalible from 5 - 8 piece bands they are great to get your guests buzzing with tunes from the 1920s onwards with much more avalible on request.
