Background music at weddings and parties

I really love singing at weddings and parties. I’m happy not being in the limelight doing what I love surrounded by talented musicians, in a beautiful location with guests that have a joint sense of the joy of the occasion! What more could a girl want!

People who have booked me often say live music made such a difference to their day, made it even more special. A popular booking is for my trio at the drinks reception after the ceremony leading up to the dinner. Another is at garden parties in the afternoon or early evening for a couple of hours – my trio playing joyous jazz and bossanova gets the atmosphere off to a bubbling start.

This is often in the gardens of the venue or even residential homes where the canap├ęs are being served. We play happy and relaxed classic jazz songs that seem to really resonate with all generations, creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere conducive to chatting and mingling.

If you would like to chat about hiring music for your special day, please just drop me a line. All you need to consider is how many musicians would suit your plans. I can sing in a duo with a guitarist for a smaller gathering, or if you have space or are outside you could consider a trio, quartet or larger band adding bass and soloists such as trombone or saxophone.

Below are some pictures taken at real life weddings and parties. Drop me a line if you’d like to discuss booking some live music for your special day – elasouthgate@gmail.com
