Everyone’s aware of the so called ‘standard’ wedding act, playing a raft of rock and pop classics from down the years but some more adventurous couples are hitting up a lot of our funk and soul wedding acts for their big day, here’s a few recent additions we can recommend.

To start with an act we’ve been working with for many years now, Brother From Another (above) are an outstanding collective of musicians, aswell as 5 best mates, who play a huge variety of the best known songs from the 1960s to the present day, in their own style… and from doing this have built up a great reputation around Wiltshire & The Southwest where they are based. The band are suitable for any event. What also makes these guys great is they pride theriselves on going the extra mile, whether its learning a favourite song to perform for your event, to playing your iPhone playlist through thier sound system when they are taking a break. They can even play as their smaller outfit at wedding ceremonies or drinks receptions. Its easy to tell that these guys love what they do!
