As it’s the Scotland v Wales rugby match at Murrayfield this Saturday, and Edinburgh is already starting to fill up with Wales fans and the pub trade is booming, I thought I’d mention a few new and not so new live wedding acts for hire in Wales.
If you are looking for electrifying vocals, top muscians, and a fun, versatile, band iLectric (above) could be just what you are after. Their brilliantly broad set will appeal to all as they have carefully chosen the coolest party hits ever! Covering both up to date modern chart music & old school classics. Their repertoire includes tunes from Bruno Mars, Bon Jovi, Katy Perry, Tina Turner, Jessie J, Stevie Wonder, Kings Of Leon, Michael Jackson & many more…. They are a fantastic 4 piece band consisting of female lead vocals, guitar, bass, drums. All members are experienced professionals and have played at top class events all over the UK & Internationally. They have worked with acts such as Eric Clapton, The Who, Alanis Morrissette and Robbie Williams to name but a few.
Matt Cook specialises in providing an alternative musical option for people that want live music for their event, but don’t want to go down the “pub and club” singer route. Matt likes to play all kinds of different songs, these can be songs that are only a few weeks old and currently playing on the radio, or they can be old classics from heavyweight bands. If it’s a good song, it’s in. Matt uses only an acoustic guitar and his voice, and doesn’t believe in using backing tracks or prerecorded CDs, as these detract from the goal – to provide real live music, to people who insist on an authentic sound.
Are you looking for a pianist to adds that extra touch to your special day? Hannah Mitchell‘s (right) playing will create the perfect musical backdrop for your wedding or special celebration. Hannah has a varied repertoire, made up of both classical and popular music. From Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata to Bruno Mars’s Just The Way You Are, Hannah’s repertoire includes something for everyone. If your chosen venue does not have a piano, she is able to bring her own digital piano along with her. Whether you need a pianist to play hymns at your church service, provide music during the signing of the register or background music during your wedding breakfast, Hannah’s playing will create the romantic atmosphere that makes your day one to remember.
