Our music

Whether you are looking for variety or a specific genre to meet your personal tastes, we can offer a huge variety of music for your special event.

Our repertoire includes all of the classical music that you would expect to hear such as Bach’s Air on the G String and wedding favourites Handel’s ‘The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ and Pachelbel’s ‘Canon in D’ but we are also equally happy performing modern songs such as Christina Perry’s ‘1000 Years’ or John Legend’s ‘All of Me’. Over the years we have also branched out to include jazz, latin and music from films & musicals as well as our huge collection of pop music which is always being updated. We really do have something for everyone!
