Dan and Jess were an absolute pleasure. Really helpful and accommodating, and their performance was perfectly suited to the relaxed atmosphere on the day. Thank you both so much! xxx
Dan and Jess were perfect for my laid back 50th birthday party in the garden. Lots of my guests commented on Jess's beautiful voice and their 2 sets added a real party atmosphere to the evening. They were prompt and personable and set up with no fuss. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family. Thank you Dan and Jess.
Very professional. Fantastic music. Everyone loved them.
Thank you both for playing for us on Sunday. You were both amazing and helped make our day perfect. We loved your version of “Set Fire To The Rainâ€, and wish we had recorded it. Absolutely fantastic – Thank you so much x
Fantastic duo. Dan and Jess really impressed our guests with their flawless performance. They were the perfect choice for our wedding :) Thank you x
Dan and Jess were amazing at our wedding, not only sounded beautiful on the day I found Dan was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the whole process of choosing our play list. And, organising where we wanted them to play at the venue. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding as they really created a great atmosphere for our guests to enjoy themselves! Thanks again you were awesome!!
Live music can add a beautiful atmosphere to your ceremony, Dan & Jess can play a few songs as your guests arrive and a special song as you walk down the aisle. After your service they can play a couple of songs for your guests as you are signing the register and then finally a song as you leave as a married couple.
The Drinks Reception
While your guests are enjoying drinks and you are having your photos taken Dan & Jess can provide some great live music to entertain your guests. This can be either 2 x 45 minutes sets or just 1 x 90 minute set if your short on time. They can also play outside (weather permitting).
The Wedding Breakfast
To create an intimate, relaxed atmosphere Dan and Jess can play a selection of easy listening and contemporary pop songs as you and your guests enjoy food and drinks. As a guide the Duo usually play 2 x 45 minute sets of songs but can play for as long or short as you would like.
Early Evening Entertainment
Great if you want something a little different to entertain your guests for your early evening before a DJ or Band start, couples usually like them to play their first dance song, which Dan and Jess can either learn for you or you can choose from the set list.
