Wedding Drinks Reception: Why book a jazz ensemble for your wedding?
When it comes to planning your big day there a lot of factors you need to take into consideration, but you probably know this by now. Our team of experts has brainstormed on the important of having Drinks Reception Music & the best act to book for this stage of your wedding.
The question, is it necessary or an overkill? Our opinion is: absolutely necessary! We all know it's not nice to enter a silent room full of people you barely know or, on the other hand, being the first guest to arrive. Why not offer your guests a sophisticated easy listening jazzy soundtrack as they enter the venue? From our experience a Jazz ensemble is the perfect background live music to greet your guests into the party as it's both soothing and not overpowering, leaving room to mingle.
Duo's and Trio's are budget friendly and create a great atmosphere, their sound can be subtle and can be gradually increased as more people arrive. They usually come with a small PA system and amplifiers to cover up to 100 guests but the levels are never very loud so people can chat to each other.
