Over the years, we’ve gained a bit of name for ourselves as a wedding jazz band in Devon. Silk Street Jazz travel far and wide to bring a dash of good old-fashioned entertainment to weddings around the nation, and we love descending on this radiant county for an occasion we’ll always remember.
With summer just around the corner, we’re already polishing up our brass and straightening our bow ties ahead of wedding season. And it’s making us a little bit nostalgic about some of the great events we’ve had the privilege of playing in 2016.
So we thought it high time we give you a glimpse of our events in and around the area…
Setting the scene for celebration
For starters, we couldn’t have picked a better venue for a wedding. A magnificent country house in the heart of Devon, Huntsham Court truly is a sight to behold with its sweeping grand entrance, period façade and high ceilings.
Our three-piece jazz band for hire was booked to perform at the reception, the focus of which was a garden party on the manicured lawns surrounding the property. The weather was kind, and held out to allow for outdoor celebrations, involving plenty of music from the Silk Street Jazz trio…
Wedding entertainment for all ages
It was a pleasure to see such a diverse age range at the wedding – we love family-friendly receptions, as it allows us to bring adults and kids together for a royal knees-up. As our guests enjoyed croquet, giant chess and glasses of fizz, we sprung to life on the tuba, clarinet and banjo.
The beauty of live band hire is that we’re mobile; over the course of the afternoon, we performed in different areas of the garden, adapting to the mood of our audience. Against the immeasurably lush backdrop of the house, it was a perfect way to usher in the marriage of the happy bride and groom!
