Planning, Clothing, Playing
As experienced professional wedding and function musicians we will always dress smartly when performing. Performance times can be adjusted to fit in with auctions, buffets, raffle results or speeches and arrival and set up times can usually be arranged to minimise disruption to guests. Set up time is normally twenty minutes, and we require an area of around 2m x 2m.
Classical Guitar, Dance Party Duo and Wedding Singer Options
Dave and Laura-Jayne can offer three additional live music options to add further variety and sophistication to your event. Classical Guitar pieces can be performed by Dave during the welcome drinks or the ceremony itself. Laura Jayne Hunter can also sing solo or using backing tracks during any phase of your event, performing anything from easy listening to popular dance hits. We can also perform party dance classics from our function band LeFunk's repertoire, with live vocals and guitar performed over self produced backing tracks for bass, drums and keyboards. This means you can start softly with the acoustic duo and switch to the sound of a full band when your guests are in the mood for dancing!
