If you have something a little more exciting in mind for your event than your average old wedding band then the Blue Lions is for you! The Blue Lions not only play a real variety of styles, including all your favourite party tunes, but they play them like no other band in town.
The band offers a music plan for weddings that involves any, or all of 3 parts below:
1) Ceremony - during the wedding ceremony itself, we can arrange for something classical or more modern, depending on your taste. We usually recommend a smaller group, but can provide large ensembles if the venue has space - perhaps including strings, harp, flute - ask about a free demo CD, to hear some of the possibilities for yourself.
2) Entry/Wedding Breakfast - as the newly-weds make their entrance, during hors d'ouevres, or the early stages of the wedding breakfast, you might not want to rock it up too much, and a smaller selection of the musicians can play traditional jazz or chilled acoustic music in the background, to keep the room buzzing. This is a really important way to set the mood for the night, without over-doing it - perfect music for sipping cocktails!
3) Finally the Party - of course after dinner and the formalities, if you are looking to get everyone straight onto the dance floor then you really need a serious band. This is where Blue Lions have earned their reputation - playing music for the dance floor!
In addition, a basic DJ service is provided during dinner to keep the party going during the moments when you don't want live music. Depending on your requirements, any or all of the elements can be removed and configured to your personal taste in music or wedding theme. This way you can be assured that you are getting the best quality music without the hassle, expense and disturbance of having to arrange for 3 different bands to set up and sound-check for the occasion. You also get a unique mix of styles throughout the day, from classical, old-school rock, celtic, gypsy, horas, swing, jazz , 80s pop, funk, classic rock and top 40 etc., all individually tailored to meet the tastes of you and your guests.
