Wedding Band Hampshire Hire a Wedding Band in Hampshire Area

You already know that any number of musicians in wedding band Hampshire selections can provide the live music at your wedding. So, why rather hire Light and Shade?

Wedding Band Hampshire

wedding band hampshireWe are quite different to many other Hampshire wedding acts as we perform live music as a two piece band to suit any budget. Band size, on the other hand, does not affect the quality of sound whatsoever. As much as we perform alongside our custom backing tracks, we're also extremely professional and rather experienced musicians. Our main line up consists of electric guitar, keyboard with male and female vocals. However, you may choose to see/hear more musicians on stage. Simply let us know in the form below and we'll make it happen!

Wedding Band Hampshire Music

As a professional wedding band in Hampshire, our repertoire consists of over 200 songs. These range from 30's immortal classics to today's top dance floor filler hits. Our set list's genre and style also include only the very best of pop, rock, indie, funk, disco, jazz, blues, swing, rock'n'roll and soul. So, you won't have to worry if everyone will be enjoying themselves or not. However, the only complaint you're most likely to get is the sore feet the next day!

Hi-Tech Duo | Hire a Versatile Hi-Tech Duo for Your Event or Venue

Hi-Tech Duo

Hi-Tech Duo

Hi Tech DuoFirstly you may be wondering what is a hi-tech duo? A hi tech duo is a duo band of two musicians which play and sing alongside backing tracks which produce the other music required for each song. This type of duo band is becoming increasingly popular and can be found performing on-board ferries and cruise ships as well as in most of the top hotels around the world.

In the case of Light and Shade we perform live electric guitar, keyboard and male/female vocals, with our unique customised backing tracks providing the drums/percussion, bass and other instruments required, for example brass or woodwind. On some songs the sound produced is the equivalent of hiring an orchestra!

Why hire a hi-tech duo for your event?

A hi tech duo is a great choice for your event for a number of reasons;

  • Delivers a 'big band sound' capable of entertaining any audience
  • Allows for complete volume control which is not possible with live drums, brass, etc
  • Only requires a small area in order to perform
  • Offers fantastic value for money without reducing the quality of the music

Light and Shade hi tech duo is the perfect choice for hotels, ferry and cruise ships, any venue with nearby residential dwellings or council noise restrictions and for private functions that want a full band sound on a limited budget.

I'm considering many live duos and bands in Hampshire, why hire Light and Shade?

As regular performers, we are full-time and professional musicians; this is our job. So, we take all bookings and events seriously (in a fun way!), as opposed to a "weekend laugh" of part-time musicians. This also means that we have professional quality, PAT tested and insured equipment & lighting to ensure a good quality sound and safety of all. Additionally, we always care for your requirements & priorities and play cover versions of songs that fit you, your guests/customers and the atmosphere of the event/venue. Light and Shade 2-piece band in Hampshire is very different to acoustic duos. We have the ability to create versatile sounds (from light background music to party dance music) and be as loud as you want us to be. We're basically a one band live music solution! 🙂 We're also available to book as a larger band. Plus, booking us is easy; just use our simple enquiry form below!
