For the ceremony (indoors) I'm looking for a quartet to play half an hour of contemporary songs preceding the ceremony, then a couple of tracks during. Then a few more tracks afterwards. Times 4pm-6:00pm but not continuous of course. Hoping quartet will not need amplification. Venue is like a long greenhouse, not too big, it's in Holland Park, London. Tight ensemble is a must, i have an ear for detail. Contemporary repertoire a must although will be a few classics. Ideally can arrange a track or two from request. Bonus points if they can perform specifically Max Richter's recomposition of Spring 2 from Vivaldi's Four Seasons.

The theme is Great Gatsby so we would like a band in a 1920s style, but if they could do a mixture of songs from that period and modern songs in that style, that would be ideal.

We've put together a band to play a short set at our wedding reception. We want strings to augment one of the songs. We would need at least one rehearsal, but we can come to you.

I am part of the Student Forum at the Architectural Association of London.

Let me know if you are available and how much you would like to play for two hours. Thanks.
A massive thank you to the band who were amazing! They were the cherry on the top of our day, and helped make it even more memorable. We had so much fun and the bride spent the entire time they were there dancing to every song. Everyone we've spoken to since the day has commented on how brilliant they were, and the energy and fun they gave to the evening was just fantastic. We also want to thank them for being so accommodating when they arrived, as there was a slight issue with the stage which meant they started later than we originally thought. This did not seem to cause them any issue, and they were incredibly professional and generally awesome. We'll be recommending them to everyone, and we're already looking for an excuse to hire them again. We think they rock! Our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of them. Kind regards, Anna and Ben.
Leonie played beautifully at my father's funeral as part of a duo, and was extremely kind and professional at all times. Highly recommended.
We booked Kellermeister Oompah Band for our Golf Club Oktoberfest. They arrived on time and set up their equipment then got into their traditional Bavarian Costumes. The evening took off with a bang right from the start. The band was brilliant, thoroughly entertaining and very professional. They played traditional German bierkeller music and other popular music which was enjoyed throughout the performance. The audience participation was very funny and enjoyed by those who participated and more so by those who watched. I would highly recommend Kellermeister Oompah Band for a fun, energetic and highly entertaining evening. It was said by many "One of the best evenings at the club!" Danke schoen!
