Prelude Music
When we play a wedding ceremony, we typically play 30 minutes of prelude music before guests are seated.  We can play pop, classical, or a mix of both!

Cocktail Hour

We can play a variety of styles for your cocktail hour.  Please visit our library page to see our repertoire.  Classical, jazz, standards, pop, rock and more!  We can choose music to fit the unique style of your wedding, and if you have specific requests we can work together to personalize your cocktail hour selections.
