Vintage Live Music for Weddings: Retro, Glamorous Fun!
Live music, with a terrific band playing to an exuberant crowd of party and wedding guests; what fun!
What makes for a great plan utilizing live music at weddings and events?
To me, the repertoire’s the thing.
There is nothing that’s as much fun at a wedding or party than the special INTERACTIVE relationship between brides and grooms, wedding and party guests and a live band — especially a live band with an enormous repertoire.
And how boring that music would be if it were all just swing, or a steady diet of big band dance music from the 1940’s. The music of the 1950’s 1960’s and 1970’s is SO HOT! Our eclectic jazz-pop-swing repertoire has become very contemporary in it’s retro moderne vintageness. We know thousands of songs — our enormous repertoire is actually legendary — and not everything we play is an “obvious choice.” It’s this uniqueness that’s part of the excitement of having live music at a wedding or an event.
Songs like Destination Moon, Song Of The Jet and Hotel California are fun, mood-provoking, sleek and cerebral, flirty and deep, light and elegant. We love the kind of live music that thrills and delights wedding and party guests. By pre-arrangement with the client, of course!
We LOVE to set the scene at a wedding or event. And we are especially loving the creativity of the music we think up to do for modern retro- vintage, mid-century space-age jet set events. We’ve been playing these songs for years; now we’re hearing them on the radio as a new generation realizes there’s more to music than….well…that OTHER stuff.
From Roaring Twenties theme parties, 1950’s doo-wop and oldies music for mid-century retro events, Old Hollywood glamour for estate and ballroom weddings — to hip, jet set Atomic Lounge vintage music for a great 1960’s pool or lounge party — Old Hollywood glamour for events and weddings with LIVE MUSIC is big time fun!
The Great Gatsby…Audrey Hepburn…Grace Kelly…Palm Springs Weekend…a Sinatra Rat Pack lounge party… Casino Royale! My Fair Lady…Breakfast at Tiffany’s…Sabrina…Funny Face…The Bandwagon…Yay!
And outdoor weddings; gotta love ’em. This is why we live in California!
If you can think of it, we can play it. And if you can’t think of it, we can!
We even take requests from the dance floor! If it’s good music, you can bet it’s in our repertoire. It’s all swing to us!
