I am getting married on 1st October 2016 at Hintlesham Hall and am looking for a string quartet or trio to play during the ceremony, and drinks reception, which precedes the wedding breakfast. The time on site would be around 4 hours in total, with 3 hours of playing.
I'm looking for a fun positive vintage trio Band for NYE : it has to be very festive (get up and dance), unique and friendly with a strong connection with the guests who want to have fun. So the trio can dance, make jokes, good positive vibe really :).
Repertoire : 20/30's and/or 40/50's swing music, gypsy jazz, cabaret, etc.
Bio, line up, best picture and sample video and/or MP3 demo tracks to be provided.
We need only 1 female singer and 2 other musicians because of the budget which is a £180 per musicians. And for the moment the place is held secret but it will be in central London and there will be a hundred guests.
Please let me know ASAP.
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.

However we will require the band to perform on a London Bus which is being hired to take delegates to the London Dungeons
Timings: Approx. 30 – 45 minutes
Background on the event: Crayon are an IT software advising company. The day will consist of a conference being held at the Shard, with internal delegates and partners such as Microsoft, Veeam being in attendance. The evening will be much more of a relaxed approach - a chance to thank attendees. We are planning to take delegates to the London Dungeons for a private dinner, on a London Bus (taking a longer, scenic route, with an entertainer on-board).
Theme: Well-known, English theme, ranging through the ages.
Could you confirm whether the band is:
- Whether the band are able to perform acapella (we would not be able to provide any electrics at all).
- And could you send me footage of them performing acapella and a list of tracks they are able to perform.
South Wootton Supporters Ball was established in 2015 by myself as a compliment to the SW Fete which was established in 2014. Held in a marquee at the rear of the Swan PH, last years event was a huge success and raised over £2K for local charities. We aim to replicate the same this year, which is already sold out (150 people) We can pay a small amount and will provide food and drinks. We are looking for a band to compliment the disco. Event runs from 7pm to 1am however disco would end the evening. Budget is around £250. Many thanks in advance.
We are looking for 4 piece jazz band for regular weekly events in south London starting in 2-3 weeks, if the band and fee is good more events are possible,
Please send as much information as you can,
Hi there I work in a care home in grays and I have been let down by an act for tomorrow sorry it's short notice but I was wondering if you are avaible for tomorrow at 11 o clock. Please give me a call
We are looking for a classical guitarist to play background music during our dinner, at Jesus College, Cambridge University. The dinner is part of a wedding celebration, but we are NOT looking for a guitarist for the church ceremony on Tuesday afternoon. JUST for dinner.
There will be only 14 people, at the most, in the Alcock room at Jesus College. Guests will start arriving at 7:00, and we ask for the music to be played for perhaps a half hour, with a 10 or 15 minute break, followed by another half hour. I am guessing, because I really don't know who these events proceed.
It is essential for us that the entertainer NOT smoke, because we do not want the lingering smell of tobacco on the entertainer's clothing.
Fundraising event for a small village, you will need to privide either 2x 60 minute sets or 3x 45 minute sets with your own system. We will provide a disco between and after you have finished your first set will start around 8.30pm
What can I say.... The most beautiful, atmospheric, wonderful, perfect music for our wedding day. Your Disney repertoire is absolutely fantastic, just what we were looking for. You made my dream come true of walking down the aisle to 'I see the light', we can't thank you enough. The communication from start to finish with 4tissimo was brilliant, they work so hard to give you exactly what you are looking for. Thank you from an extremely happy husband and wife xx
Thank you all for making the music at the wedding of our daughter truly memorable. We were touched by how enchanting & beautiful the music sounded especially the songs we requested as they are both extremely special & sentimental to our family. You promised that they were lovely but they were more than that - they were perfect. Let us know if you're uploading "Africa" & "You Have A Friend In Me" to your website--we'd love to hear them again so that we can reminisce . Everyone commented on how your sound added to a beautiful day & we're delighted you played for us. Hope it's not too long before we get to hear you all again.
Many thanks and lots of love
