||For wedding functions, Mad Dog And The Sophisticats
can be hired to perform a selection of intoxicating
music for a civil ceremony. They are also the
perfect live jazz band for hire for the pre-dinner
drinks and during the wedding breakfast at the
wedding reception venue or in a marquee. They
are a Yorkshire based jazz band but they are
happy to travel around the UK, having recently
performed their delicious brand of jazz music
for a wedding reception at Broadlands in Hampshire
(where the Queen celebrated her wedding night!).
Mad Dog And The Sophisticats is one of the top
live jazz bands for hire for a wedding celebration.
They perform a popular jazz reception set, which
creates a happy, warm welcome for your guests
and ‘breaks the ice’ on their arrival.
This sets the tone of the day and creates a
marvellous informal ambience. The jazz band
performs as walkabout musicians where they play
fully acoustic instruments. Because they play
in a mobile style, they can mix and mingle around
your guests and perform in any area. This keeps
everyone entertained whilst the photographs
are taken and during your pre-dinner drinks.
Their infectious, jolly, toe-tapping music becomes
a talking point without distracting from the
main reason of the day.
You can hire Mad Dog And The Sophisticats
to play appropriate background jazz music
during the wedding breakfast itself. Here
the band changes both their instrumentation
and attire. During the earlier drinks set
they are usually delightfully dressed in bright
waistcoats and during the wedding breakfast
they perform in stylish dinner suits. They
play more mellow instruments at this time,
with the banjo player switching to an acoustic
jazz guitar and Mad Dog switching to a flugal
horn. Whilst performing as your guests are
enjoying the wedding breakfast, the most important
thing to ensure is that conversation is not
inhibited. These experienced musicians will
always perform their live jazz music at the
right volume for you and your guests. This
stimulates relaxed conversation around the
tables and provides you with the perfect start
for your wedding celebration.
Mad Dog And The Sophisticats is
the best Yorkshire based live jazz band for

March. Mad Dog can expertly perform the Trumpet
Voluntary for Baroque style wedding Entrance
