If the styles we've just described still aren't quite what you are looking for, we can also recommend outstanding musicians who play Island music, both Caribbean and Hawaiian, Afro Reggae, R&B, Soul, Motown, Disco, and also Gospel Choirs for a very meaningful ceremony.
What if you are looking for a smaller ensemble that can play instrumental, background jazz for your reception or party? You don't want to dance, but you do want to create a warm and stylish atmosphere in the background. We can provide Soloists, (piano with or without vocals, guitar, reeds and guitar), Duos, Trios, to do exactly that. Their job is to blend into the background, and not be the central focus of the festivities. Call us soon to get recommendations of artists who will "best fit" your order.
Our bands know just what to do to keep the
party flowing smoothly and the dance floor full!
Just ask Nancy, and she'll be happy to discuss your needs.
Quotes, information, and availabilities always promptly given!
