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.
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´m getting married on the 6-August-2016, in East Morton, West Yorkshire. I´m looking for a violinst to play 1 song as the ceremony starts, this will be the song that I enter into the ceremony. And then to play a variety of music after the ceremony finishes for around 45 minutes.
The Ceremony is due to start at 4pm, and last for approximately 45 minutes.
We are planning the ceremony to be outdoors in a park, if weather permits.
Please let me know your prices and availabilty. My email is; firstname.lastname@example.org.

We were thinking if it would be possible for a brass band to play for about an hour, straight after the ceremony (ceremony and reception are at the same venue) whilst guests are having their welcome drinks. The wedding is in Worsley.
I am writing on behalf of the Choir team based in Leeds.
We would be having our annual Christmas carol on the 11th of December where we would be singing a few Carols and, we would like to make enquiries regarding booking musicians and musical instruments. due to the carols we would be doing we would like an orchestral feeling at the carol; most likely violin, strings or wind instruments. Please we are open to suggestions in regards to variations of instruments that could be supplied.

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle made my Dad’s 60th Birthday one of my most memorable parties. They were seamless and entertained a group of 70 strong party goers of varying ages. They were really friendly and I wouldn’t think twice about having them back in the future.
Kitty's band were amazing at my mum's 90th birthday party. They played the perfect mix of slower and jazzier music brilliantly. They created the perfect atmosphere and were completely flexible to small changes we made to timings or to requests. everyone said how good they were and there was plenty of dancing by all age groups. We had a great party and Kitty's Band were a big part of everyone having such a good time. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them - great band with a great sound!
You have made me the happiest girl in the world!!! My family and friends were completely blown away by you all (you were my Mum’s favourite part of the whole day). I keep welling up thinking about it. You made us feel like we were in our own movie and you were the soundtrack that brought it all together. You had me in tears from the moment Joyful Joyful started right through to your final notes when only Kevin and I were left. It was so special and I can’t thank you all enough. You were all so friendly and lovely to boot.
Thank you, thank you and thank you once again.
