I am helping to arrange the Open University Degree ceremony due to take place in the Harrogate International Centre on Friday 19th May and we require a brass band. The ceremony commences at 14:00 but the band may be required to attend earlier for a rehearsal (11:00).
14:00 – 14:30 (pre ceremony musical programme)
16:00 – 16:30 (after the ceremony, recession)
The band would be able to play their own programme of music, in agreement with the ceremony manager.
There would be a green room available to use before and after the ceremony for storage etc. and we would provide tea, coffee and a light sandwich lunch.
If there is anything further you need to know please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you could let me know whether there might be a band available and a quote for the cost of hiring that would be great.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I am part of the communication and marketing team for the energy company Third Energy. We are in the process of pulling together an event for Yorkshire Day on 1st August. We are going to attend an elderly peoples home in the Pickering/Malton area and hold a Yorkshire event with them. This will involve a brass band performance, Yorkshire cakes and tea, and a distrubtion of white roses.
We are getting married at Ox pastures hall in Scarborough on the 28th July, we require a quartet or something similar for the ceremony only, ceremony starts at 1600hrs,
We would like music played whilst the guests arrive and sit down and then for when The bride walks down the aisle, and for the bride and groom walking back out.
Firstly I have looked high and low for a laid back guitarist/vocalist for our festival inspired wedding next year, I came across your profile today on poptop and I so so hope your free on our date as what you play is absolutely perfect and you sound amazing.
Our wedding is being held on our friends farm in Burnsall, North Yorkshire on Saturday 28th May 2016. We are having a really laid back day, with our ceremony at 1pm with then field games, lots of beer, lots of wine, a ton of BBQ and loads of laughter after. I was hoping you would play before during and after the ceremony? Probably a good four hours of relaxing, chilled gorgeous music....
We will supply you with all the BBQ and beer you fancy on the day.
Really looking forward to your response.
Just been listening to a couple of your videos, thought you were great and would like to know if your available Saturday 11th July this year to perform at our wedding ceremony and the early part of our reception(all in the afternoon)
Our wedding is going to take place in mirfield which I know isn't far from you.
If you could get back in touch either way that would be great.
Birthday party (adult)
- Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
Celebrate a special birthday, where the party will be held indoors. I have two pianos..... One upright in the conservatory ( has a beautiful sound ) & a baby grand in the sitting room. I would like a sophisticated mix of music, Jools Holland, Jaime Cullum kind of thing?? The party guests will be a wide range of ages... So a little something to appeal to everyone.
hi there, i am in the process of planning my mums 50th birthday party and I am looking for a singer who will sing mainly motown/soul music. Your set list looks great. The event is being held as a private party on Saturday 21st november 2015 in Camberley, Surrey. I wondered if you could give me an idea on your usual set times and pricing and availability?
wedding starting at 2pm . Would like music playing at 1.30 as guests arrive. Then during ceremony and whilst photos are taken until wedding breakfast begins at 4pm. Can you send a quote please. Thank you.
We had Mia and the moon performing for us at our wedding at skylark farm. I have got to say that I was so overwhelmed with how incredibly beautiful they sounded! They are like angels who put their heart and soul into every performance. They dedicated songs to me and my mum and of and my husband as well as letting me sing with them at the end. I wish I asked them to perform in the evening too because of how incredible they are. I would strongly recommend them and can't wait to see them perform again!😍
