Ariella Strings performed for us at our wedding at Stowe House in July 2016, and became a central part of our afternoon. While we were searching for bands, some groups we spoke to were very prescriptive with the set they were willing to play, whereas Ariella Strings were hugely accommodating in letting us choose a list of songs that we wanted from their extensive playlist - even stretching to their brilliant Jukebox Live idea, where guests can request tracks from the list we'd provided. This was a huge hit with our guests (to the point they didn't want to come in for food!). John and Cheryl were absolutely lovely to deal with while preparing for our big day, and excellent musicians too. We were having our photos taken for the majority of time Ariella Strings were playing, but it was clear all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed it - especially my three year old niece who requested "Let It Go" as often as she could! Four months on from the wedding, our friends still mention Ariella Strings whenever we reminisce about the day. We're hoping one of them takes our recommendation soon, so we can enjoy them fully without being bothered by a photographer!
They were brilliant. We all had so much fun dancing from the first song through to the extended set, with my ever skeptical husband asking them to extend their set. They were so easy to deal with, brought all the sound equipment needed with them, arranged a percussionist to join them at our request and the song selection which we left up to them was perfect. The kids and adults loved it, and they even managed some impromptu requests. All our friends keep talking about how it was the best party ever! THANK YOU guys & Katie
If you're looking to hire a Swing Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in Hampshire, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Swing Bands by price and location, and compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice. When choosing a Live music band it's important to consider:
Swing music is popular for its intensity as well as the use of various instruments in performance. Swing bands make events lively by setting the stage as well as providing entertainment to revelers. An event occasioned by this form of music is the perfect environment for fun, entertainment as well as general interaction. While it is not hard to acquire the services of these types of bands as long as you look in the right places, event organizers struggle to find the right bands for specific occasions. This piece lays out the factors you need to consider when hiring swing bands in Hampshire, South East England.
Even though most swing bands in England have more or less the same style of performance, there are slight differences in the choice of instruments and the overtones in the whole performance. A wedding ceremony, for example needs a livelier band than a charity meeting among peers. A good idea would be to go for ��loud’ and ��aggressive’ bands when an intense function is on the cards and choose subdued bands when the event dictates so.
The perception of the band among the locals
If you are going to host an event in Hampshire, then it is safe to assume that most of your audience will include the locals. If they do not like your choice, then the event will not have as much energy as you might have anticipated. A good idea would be to look around for bands that the locals have a fondness for.
Different swing bands have their own distinct ways of group presentation. The way a band dresses can either boost or break the planned theme for that event. If your audience is conservative, go for bands that tend to tone down on their sense of fashion. Keep in mind the constitution of your audience, as what appeals to teens might not work for all other age groups.
