Drinks Reception or Wedding Breakfast
If you are looking for something slightly different with a sophisticated edge then the Ritz Trio could be just what you are looking for. Lively continental style jazz, classic jazz swing, smooth Latin and even the odd more popular tune, will help to create a fun, foot tapping atmosphere. And don’t worry about it being too loud, the Ritz Trio specialise in providing background music all played at a level to enable your guests to enjoy each others company without being too loud.
As the Trio don’t have lots of equipment they are able to easily move from one location to another and are more than happy to perform outside (weather permitting) providing perfect music to keep the conversation flowing – guaranteed!
The Ritz Trio play an extensive list of familiar Jazz standards such as Fly Me To The Moon, Have You Met Miss Jones, LOVE (Nat King Cole), Lets’s Fall In Love, I’m In The Mood For Love as well as a number of well-known Latin tunes such as Sway, Besame Mucho and The Girl From Ipanema. The repertoire also includes a few more well known popular renditions including Music To Watch Girls Go By and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.

Music for Your Wedding Ceremony
As the Ritz Trio are able to easily move locations why not consider using the Trio to play for your ceremony and then for the drinks reception? The band has serenaded many brides down the aisle and the group’s guitarist is able to play appropriate solo pieces to add variety and change the mood during the signing of the register. If you are wanting a more traditional element to the ceremony, the Trio often use the services of a violinist or a flautist to play alongside the guitarist performing many of the often requested ceremony pieces such as Pachelbel Canon in D and Highland Cathedral.
Other tunes we are often asked to play include Tonight, Tonight (From Westside Story), It Had To Be You, Air On G String, Here There And Everywhere (Beatles),What A Wonderful World, Moon River and Fly Me To The Moon. We can also make suggestions for a few more contemporary pieces using the violin with the Ritz Trio throughout your ceremony and of course we are always happy to hear your own music ceremony requests!
Once the ceremony is over the Trio can quickly and with no fuss move through to “jazz up” the drinks reception celebration!
If this is an option you would like to discuss please mention it when making your enquiry and we can provide you with a quote for the Ritz Trio plus violin.
Other Music Options
We are able to offer a number of band sizes and options to cater specifically to your plans and venue. These include solo guitar, sax and guitar and the hugely popular Ritz Trio – the most regularly booked line up.
Occasionally we are asked to offer a much larger 5/6 piece band for those clients wanting something different to the usual pop function bands found at many weddings. The repertoire includes well known jazz, latin and swing numbers and the Trio is augmented by vocals, keyboards and drums.
We will be happy to discuss these evening options with you in order to establish the atmosphere you are trying to achieve.
