Ways to get wedding day music that is cheaper

  1. Less skilled and experienced musicians are cheaper
  2. Musicians who pay no Tax can afford to be cheaper
  3. Musicians who don’t take the time to carefully plan for your wedding are cheaper
  4. Those with no Licenses, Health & Safety docs nor Public Liability insurance are cheaper
  5. Musicians who are desperate for work are cheaper
  6. Part time, hobbyists, weekend musicians are cheaper
  7. Those who would not even consider over delivery
  8. Bands who aim to arrive On Time are cheaper (we aim to arrive at least 2 hours early)

Mood Lighting enhances the atmosphere of your wedding or party

Even the most beautiful weddings party venues are transformed into colour coordinated spaces of warmth and elegance when mood lighting is applied, making it the perfect way to add a feeling of  stylish wedding entertainment.

The beauty with mood lighting is you can choose practically any colour along the spectrum, so the shade from your bridesmaids dress, or the bows on your chair covers can instantly match your room, transforming features on your wedding day and surrounding your guests in an elegant atmosphere of warmth and sophistication.

Its also a super way to enhance your wedding disco experience.
