Live Wedding MusicThere is nothing like live music. It adds an unmatched energy and beauty to your special day. If you are going to have live music at your affair, you will add a very personal touch to your wedding and reception. Just remember that live musicians may not be able to honor all song requests made by guests, and that this option will probably be more expensive than a DJ.
Massachusetts offers unique options for wedding music. The following list outlines just a few of the rich and diverse choices available to give your wedding its special sound:
- New England Conservatory: Talented students or alumni from the highly acclaimed New England College perform at weddings, featuring a variety of styles.
- The Wedding Trumpeter: Massachusetts' very own trumpeter, Mark Bacon, has been serving New England couples for more than twenty years.
- The Gilded Harps Of Boston: Established in 1980, when Boston-based harpists performed locally. Now this special group of musicians plays at special events and weddings throughout New England. Choose from classical, popular, Latin, and jazz.
- Richard Shmishkiss, Cocktail Pianist: One of Boston's premier cocktail pianists and musicians. Known for his jazz, cabaret, Gershwin, Broadway, and he' also trained in the classics. Has portable keyboard in the event that a piano is not available at the facility. He can be reached at (781) 821-1289.
- Sound O The Pipes: If you love bagpipes, Boston's George Kinney will bring three decades of experience to your celebration.
Massachusetts DJsHowever, you may prefer to use a DJ at your wedding. There are many Massachusetts DJs to choose from. With a large selection of music available, your guests' requests can be accommodated, original artists can be enjoyed, you have a built-in announcer, and you will probably have made a more economical choice.
For those on a tight budget, remember that a good CD player or MP3 player can also bring layered music to your day. With just one person operating the music player, you can fill your reception with a wonderful variety of music that will have all your guests dancing the night away.
Don't forget those special songs for your first dance as a married couple, the dance for the bride and her dad, the dance for the groom and his mom, and even the bridal party dance. Make sure you choose songs that evoke special memories, and make sure to discuss those musical transitions with your musicians or DJ. You'll want quieter mealtime music that will allow your guests to eat and talk peacefully. Your dancing music, however, should inspire everyone to get up and celebrate! Your music will shape each moment, and you will remember the moments long after the music has faded.
