a typical wedding day for The Waiters

A typical wedding day can involve pianist for the ceremony, on or off, location while the band is completely set up and sound checked at the reception venue.

 

When guests arrive at the reception they will hear music as a jazz trio that will set the tone for starting an elegant affair either in the main room or out on a porch or foyer.

 

The band will then assist in the introductions of the wedding party as part of the Em-Cee services and will work closely with the contact at the venue to assure the timing is smooth for toasts, which will be given with use of the band’s pa system and transgress into the serving of the food.

 

While guests have dinner the band will provide quiet instrumental dinner music and choice vocal selections ensuring the guests will be able to converse during the meal. After a short pause in the music, the band begins their 2 long dance sets of all styles of music enabling all ages to enjoy dancing and festivities.

 

The bride and groom will choose the attire for the musicians of either black suits, white shirts and ties, or tuxedos.

 Bernie and The Waiters clearly take a lot of pride in what they do - they know what they are doing and they do it very very well.
