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.

We have yet to finalise a venue but are wanting some local talent (acoustic) for an evening of laid-back music, food and funsraising.
Being students, and raising money for charity, we are starting on a £0 budget and are trying to get costs as low as possible whilst still getting good quality acts. Please could you advise as to the costs of your performers and any help / advise you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much in advance and we look forward to hearing from you.

wedding at Kettlesing Village Hall, North Yorkshire.
Looking for a band for the evening time - approx 7.30 until midnight.
You came recommended from a friend!

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.
We are looking for a German Band to open our Beer Festival for an hour and a half on Saturday 27th May 2017. The venue is Walton Village Hall. Walton Village Hall. School Lane, Wetherby, West Yorkshire, LS23 7DW.
We are looking for a great band, though do not want the traditional German Beer games that often are part of the performance.
A friend who is a german singer / dj is following on from the band at 20:30
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.

currently looking to get married on the 14th Dec (thursday) we've decided this time of year and date due to budget. im still a student and my partners working full time to support us but we dream of our perfect wedding.
we love the idea of having a hearty hot meal because of the time of year we have chosen. My partner is polish and we maybe was thinking the sweets could be poilsh deserts?
Very talented attractive musicians . They were extremely good and very sensitive changing from playing classics during the church service accompanying the hymns and switching to very update and enjoyable modern music during the time in the restaurant.
Thank you again ..
Ray performed during the proposal and it was perfect, from her arrival (discrete and timely) to her performance. The flexibility and breadth of her selection of music made the playlist equally perfect.
"Thank you to you and the rest of the band for such a fantastic set of music on Saturday. You guys are absolutely fantastic and we totally loved it!!!! As did all of our guests. So many people were asking how we found you and if they could have your contact details - Thank you so much!" Lauren & Mitch,
