A Classical Duo of Cello and Piano is arguably one of the most stylish musical backdrops you can have to enhance your Wedding Drinks Reception.
Of all instruments, the Cello is said to most closely resemble the human voice. This is due mostly to its range and perhaps also the wonderfully soulful sound from this most beautiful of string instruments.
The mellow sound of Cello and Piano is therefore an ideal combination to create the perfect ambience at your wedding drinks reception. Our repertoire is a wide range of popular covers as well as classical favourites and jazz standards.
JAM Duo can provide background music at your Wedding Drinks Reception. Our aim is to be non intrusive and create a lovely ambience to help your guests relax and chat. Our performance will usually last around 2 hours with a short break mid way through. We would normally reckon on playing around 10 songs per hour so there is plenty of scope to include a number of your favourite songs.
Within reason we do not limit the length of our performance and will carry on as necessary for the duration of your drinks reception prior to guests going to your wedding breakfast.
We bring our own instruments (usually our Electric Cello and Nord Stage Piano) and need a space around 2m x 2m to setup in. We generally perform indoors although, weather permitting, can perform outdoors. We don’t need electricity as we have our own portable power pack so can set up anywhere.
A note on performing outdoors:
If you do require that we perform outdoors, generally this not an issue. We have our own (silent) portable power pack or extension leads. The only thing we cannot control is the weather – generally however if it is pouring with rain, we rather tend to assume your guests won’t be outside either! Provided there is adequate shelter we are happy to perform in marquee’s or under umbrellas provided they are suitable to keep our instruments dry.
