So everyone is weathering the pandemic as best they can. We really, REALLY miss being out there playing for you all. The interaction, the energy, the smiles and laughs – …
Establishing a warm and welcoming ambiance as guests arrive at your wedding reception in the afternoon/pre-dinner time frame can be achieved with the perfect musical elements we offer. The Best Men Wedding Band can provide either of two afternoon/pre-dinner musical services, and you can take a look at both options below…
The Kooky Ukes
You’ll witness the members of The Best Men Wedding Band grab their ukuleles and serve up a sparkling and energetic performance of contemporary and classic chart hits. The Kooky Ukes are the liveliest bunch on the wedding scene, delighting in taking those upbeat tracks you so love and reinventing them with a new flavour. There’s a special originality that comes from the sound of three synchronous ukuleles & three great musicians. Find out more about The Kooky Ukes here.
They even made the news recently! Three of them were captured entertaining Ryanair folk with ukuleles on a flight from Barca to Dublin on the way back from a wedding in sunny Spain.The video soon went viral with over 200,000 views, this feature on Ireland AM and tons of happy faces on a dismal Tuesday morning. Read more about it on The Irish Mirror and Joe.ie.
Live Instrumental MusicAlternatively, you could opt for an assembly of instrumentalists to provide effortless background music for your pre-dinner reception. Your guests will be welcomed into your elegant affair with a tranquil and beautiful sound. Depending on your tastes and budget, we can offer a variety of combinations of musicians for your reception music.
Afternoon Duo or Trio
A professional instrumental duo comprising piano and double bass will deliver mellow, sophisticated background music to set the scene for a magical evening to come. A third member can be added if desired, playing either the saxophone or the drums. You can view a sample song list here.
Solo Pianist (Cocktail or Jazz)
A sleek solo pianist, experienced in all musical styles, is another alternative. (Your wedding venue may have a piano on site, if not, we will bring an electric piano with equivalent sound quality).
Acoustic Guitar Duo
There is a unique authentic quality that comes with an acoustic performance. Two guitars and a couple of wispy voices providing vocals can be the perfect medium as you welcome guests to your celebrations and as they wait for the dinner to move forward. The Best Men can arrange this effortless, natural acoustic charm, with a set-list of invigorating tunes from the likes of oldies like Johnny Cash to more contemporary artists like Mumford & Sons and Elbow.
