Choosing the right reception music for your wedding day

wedding reception musicThe right reception music for your wedding reception is vital to create the perfect atmosphere and put your guests at ease.

The right mood

The reception music should be light and uplifting without being obtrusive. Styles that generally work best are the American Songbook and light Jazz if you require a solo pianist or small Jazz group. You could create a different mood by having a harpist or string quartet.

The right volume

It's also important that your reception music is the right volume and professional musicians know exactly how to judge this correctly. Reception music is background music and this is the time for the musicians to take a back seat and judge the mood of the room correctly. This come with experience and that's certainly one thing which The Brass Farthings have.

London, Kent.......and Beyond!

The Brass Farthings are based around Kent and London and have performed at all the top hotels in the capital but you can hire the band to play anywhere in the UK – and beyond.
