Drinks Reception Afternoon

As guests arrive at your wedding reception in the afternoon you’ll want a warm, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.   We can provide just this with any of the pre-dinner musical services listed below!

The Kooky Ukes

An energetic performance of contemporary and classic chart hits on ukuleles. The Kooky Ukes are the liveliest bunch on the wedding scene, delighting in taking upbeat tracks and reinventing them with a new flavour.

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.

Perfect for couples looking for those old favourites, but with a “kooky” cool twist!

Acoustic Guitar Duo

A soft and elegant sound composed of two guitars, this option provides pleasing background music and helps to create a mellow tone as your guests begin to mingle, which means no awkward silences or dead-sounding, noiseless rooms!

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.

As an alternative, you can choose 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.


Classical Quartet

The quartet have performed everywhere from aircraft hangers, stately gardens, tiny medieval churches, elegant drawing rooms to castles, with a repertoire covering O’Carolan to Coldplay and everything in between. This creates a magical atmosphere at every event. Click here for a listen!
