live music for functions & special events

Booking the right musians to suite your event is of great importance…
it can make or break the occasion!


It is advisable to choose your musicians based on their experience at playing the type of events you are hosting, check that their repertoire is suitable for the ambiance of your event and will suite the average age & cultural group of your guests. If possible get to see them performing elsewhere or listen to their demo music,  prior to booking them.

Meet with your musicians well before the event, make sure you have given them a full brief regarding the running of your event, the times you require them to arrive, the times you expect them to play, where they will be playing, styles of music required, number of guests, plus any other relevant information that will assist them prepare a programme suitable for the function.  Ensure that an area of a suitable size is provided for them to perform in, that sight-lines and proximity to your guests are appropriate and that electrical points are available.
Should any special musical numbers be required, ie bridal isle walk, vows, register signing, first waltz etc, you will need to request these a couple of weeks upfront in order that your musicians can prepare them.
