Wedding Music the Duo Band Plays

The live wedding music generally falls into two categories, during the drinks or dinner section and as the main entertainment at the evening reception. Both types of music have different requirements from the music. Light and Shade can supply either type or both on the same day!

We are able to provide live music for the entire day and evening. You can also have the wedding duo to play during the day and then with additional band members, turn into a bigger wedding band for the reception!

Additionally, since marriages are all unique, so are the people involved, so let us help customise a day or night of music that is as subtle or as loud as you need it to be.

How Much Does the Wedding Duo Band Cost?

We also do not charge extra to learn and perform a special song during the booking and our wedding duo or band rates are much cheaper than many others! Send your enquiry below, and let us add the extra sprinkle of magic to your special day!

  • Wedding party band to start the entertainment after the dinner, so you and your guests can dance the night away.
