If what's important to you at your wedding is having the right entertainment at the right time, a first-class MC that coordinates with your wedding planner, and having your guests walking out with smiles on their face, tired feet from dancing all night and telling you three weeks later how much fun they had, we're the band for you. We ensure this value is tightly packed into every package that we offer. We spend an average of 26 hours investing in your wedding - the six hours you see the day of, and the other 20 hours behind the scenes ensuring its success which you can see from our dozens of fantastic reviews.
We're big fans of layering music as the evening progresses. Adding more or different musicians throughout formalities leading up to the first dance set will really blow guests away! There's something unforgettable about seeing the guitarist playing a classical piece arranged for a 12 string semi-hollow body guitar at the ceremony, to rocking out in a 12 PC band with a Les Paul guitar to Queen hours later at the reception.
Here are the most POPULAR entertainment options we offer that couples & wedding planners have bundled together:
THE CEREMONY: Violin & Viola
-The latest music arranged in a way to give it a classical, modern feel.
COCKTAILS: Jazz Trio with Vocals
-Performs iconic vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, etc. Guests can have a great conversation while sipping on a cocktail!
BRIDAL PARTY ENTRANCE (DJ/Playlist) into FIRST DANCE WITH THE BAND
-An elegant, playful spin on an East Coast wedding. Our MC introduces the bride and groom RIGHT into their first dance live with the band. Sometimes we'll do the mother/son & father/daughter dance after, or invite guests to dance for a few songs before dinner!
Dinner: Rotating Jazz Quartets
-Styled after a Pro Jam at The Green Mill and Andy's Jazz Club, we'll bring your guests Downtown Chicago's finest Jazz to whatever city we're in, in a variety of different quartets. We'll even time it with your caterer to change quartet musicians as the courses change!
