Silk Street Jazz is available for funeral band hire in the UK. We have considerable experience in performing for funerals and will make a time of great sadness and moving and memorable one for family and friends. We work closely and compassionately with you and the funeral directors making sure that we meet your every wish.
The funeral band is available to perform the complete or sections of the New Orleans funeral commencing with a march from the family home, followed by further performances at the church, cemetery and the wake. Understanding that the day can be very emotional for all involved, we are extremely sympathetic throughout the whole booking process, making sure the music reflects the importance of the day. On many occasions we receive feedback after the Funeral to let us know how our music made the day more manageable and how it lifted spirits all round.
The Silk Street Jazz funeral band plays a range of sombre pieces and hymns which include “Just A Closer Walk With Thee”, “Careless Love”, “Abide with Me” and can meet most musical requests. It is common for the repertoire to take an upbeat and celebratory direction after the service, performing pieces such as “When The Saints”, “Didn’t He Ramble” and “Feel So Good”.
The funeral band is available in various sizes including the traditional 3 piece to the 7 piece. We are able to put together an extra large New Orleans ensembles if required. For a recent case study please our Jazz Band Funeral Hire article on our Blog
