Wedding Receptions and specific wedding repertoire requirements
From our experience, we know every couple wishes to create their own unique ambience at their wedding function as they celebrate their marriage. We understand your concerns and work closely with you to ensure that the music we perform during your wedding will ensure a unique and memorable event. Repertoire can be chosen in part or entirely by you or can be totally left up to us. If you have a specific piece which you would like to be performed which is not included in our repertoire list, we will do all we can to fulfill your wish as we have many other pieces on file and an in-house arranger.
