Your ‘big day’ is probably the most important occasion of your life and hopefully you will be looking to book some classy wedding entertainment which will make your event feel unique and special.

Whilst a DJ / disco or a ‘covers’ wedding band might give some of your guests an excellent night, this type of entertainment can be commonly found in most pubs, clubs & parties and so might not make your wedding the ‘classy’ occasion that you might prefer it to be.

Weddings are not like a normal evening out as, for one thing, it is probably the only occasion where you might have family members of all age groups at the same function. You will also find that it is an occasion that brings people together that might not have seen each other for a while and so it will be quite a ‘social’ occasion where people will want to converse. A wedding can also be a long day for people, particularly if they are travelling, and so the main entertainment for your evening function needs to take place before people might start to drift away.

A classy swing singer or swing band is perfect for weddings entertainment as this type of music  is all inclusive to all age groups and tends not to rely on high volume which may alienate many of your guests. You have possibly been to many weddings where guests have been unable to hear themselves talk and / or have left early because the music was too loud. ‘Disco’ music is perfectly acceptable towards the end of the evening after many of your guests, who may have a distance to travel, may have already left. Prior to that though, music which appeals to all your  guests will help to make everyone feel included in your special day and a swing vocalist is perfect for this.

Weddings Playlist

Unless you require music as background to your wedding breakfast and/or a drinks reception at some point during your proceedings, the general theme of our wedding entertainment repertoire is to keep things cheerful, lively and up tempo, with just a few slow numbers thrown in for good measure.

Each wedding is different and I tend to select the songs on the day from the list below that I think will best suit the mood and atmosphere of your occasion. Of course, if you would particularly like a song that isn’t listed either here or in my main Playlist section, then please don’t hesitate to ask.

Some clips of the songs in gold lettering can be sampled on my Soundcloud channel by clicking on them.
