Lancashire Wedding Music Duos

Wedding Entertainment Duos

Dream Day Music manage specialise in providing intimate daytime wedding music. We have several small ensembles, such as duos, fitting the bill if you're looking for more than just a solo instrumentalist.

Through our theatre tours, Soundsmiths Promotions work with some of the top North West musicians, many of whom have recorded, toured and performed live with some really iconic names and prestigious orchestras in the UK, and worldwide (think Seal and Craig David to name but two). Together, they perform wedding reception music and wedding ceremony music in Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Cheshire in various combinations. We have vocal entertainment courtesy of Kate Torevell accompanied on piano or guitar; 2❤Close, a busy acoustic 'Live Lounge' duo performing stripped-back covers of popular songs; string quartets; and violinists and saxophonists accompanied on piano and guitar.

Booking direct means no agency fees (which can often be as high as 100% added to your bill). All duos are insured with public liability insurance and all electrical equipment is PAT tested. Most venues require certification of these.

2❤Close

2❤Close features stunning, soulful and beautifully heartfelt vocals accompanied on piano. The duo specialise in 'Live Lounge'-style acoustic reworkings of songs old and new, from classics like Natural Woman, More Than Words, Heard it Through the Grapevine, and Stand By Me to recent hits like Hold Back the River, Budapest and All of Me. More information including packages, prices, sample set lists and audio can be found at 2Close.co.uk.

Popular set lists include:

  • Chill Out - specially chosen ballads and mellow versions of usually up-tempo numbers, perfect for relaxing with a cocktail
  • Modern Hits - unique acoustic arrangements of recent hits from artists like John Legend, The Lumineers, Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith and more
  • Classics - soul and pop favourites from decades past like Stand by Me, Natural Woman, Dock of the Bay and I I Feel Good
  • Romantic - classy stripped-back love songs, ideal for weddings, Valentines Day, and public performances at cocktail bars, restaurants etc

Mixed sets are of course available. You can hear some demos below:

Sax and piano/guitar duo

We have a couple of saxophonists on our books in Mike and John, who have toured with some rather famous names, such as Craig David and Kid Creole.

Due to the region's famous northern soul music, we're home to some of the best horn players on offer. Needless to say, a saxophone is the ultimate in cool for a cocktail reception, and the sax players we work with with all play a combination of swing, jazz or pop and soul classics. A saxophone duo is equally comfortable with flashy uptempo numbers and mellower ballads, so can be shaped to suit your own wedding's specifications and themes. Both traditional jazz and modern wedding music styles are available.

Mike, based in Merseyside, is available accompanied on piano or guitar. John, our saxophonist in Lancashire is available with his pianist.

Violin and piano duo

Preston based Craig and Lancaster based Jill, perform a whole range of wedding music at both wedding ceremonies and receptions, with their wedding pianist and violin duet. The styles they can perform include classical, jazz, swing, and modern theatre and pop music. This versatile and popular duo perhaps lends itself best to ceremony music, but is also ideal for creating a romantic ambiance for wedding breakfasts, or a relaxed 'folky' feel to post-wedding drinks receptions. The duo's demos, packages, and setlists are available on request.

Flute and piano duo

Piano and flute duets for wedding ceremony music and wedding breakfasts are great for a calming, relaxed atmosphere, as well as being ideal for smaller, more intimate settings, where a saxophone might be too brash. Our flautists, John and Aine can perform various styles including classical, pop, musicals, Disney and more.

Piano and vocals

Our contacts include some fantastic singers, both male and female. These include classical performers trained at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) and pop, rock and jazz singers from the equally elite Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA). The piano and vocal duets can cover any style of music and any size of venue. Please contact us to discuss the right type of voice for the songs you'd like to hear at your wedding.
