AWARD-WINNING WEDDING RECEPTION
We boast a simple yet effective award-winning wedding
reception music formula that has served Brides & Grooms of
Adelaide for over a decade. The music during the initial hours
is low-key and in the background creating a warm mood and
pleasant ambience as guests arrive, throughout pre-dinner
drinks, dinner and amongst your formalities (i.e. speeches
etc). Subsequent to the Bridal Waltz and for the last hour
or so (once the alcohol usually has oozed-in and as the
Bridesmaids kick off their high-heels) the band will
raise the volume level a few decibels and perform more
up-beat party-like songs to get everyone up on the dance
floor and create an ultimate high to conclude the wedding!
