Which band option to choose?
There are three Azure band sizes to cater for all budgets and venue sizes. Each Azure band line-up provides superb live music to keep your guests dancing all night long.
The 4-piece band is an excellent compact band which takes up the least space and is the lowest cost. Great for weddings and functions.
The 5-piece band, which features keyboards, is the most popular Azure line-up for weddings and functions. It’s particularly well suited to Azure’s modern pop repertoire and includes an even longer performance.
The 7-piece band features the addition of female vocals and saxophone. This extended line-up allows for an even bigger repertoire with even greater musical texture, and comes with a whopping 2 hour 30 minutes of live performance. A great choice for large corporate events that call for an extra ‘wow factor’!”
When you book Azure for your wedding or event, the band comes with all the necessary sound equipment for a top performance. This includes back-up equipment and multiple spares of everything, so you don’t have to hire any gear or a separate sound engineer.
Azure also comes with superb professional lighting as standard, to enhance your dance floor area and light up the band.
Azure will provide professionally mixed recorded music for the whole evening whenever they are not performing, so there is no need to hire a DJ.
First dance performance
If you book Azure to perform at your wedding, the band will learn and perform anything for your first dance. This really can be any song in the world as long as it can be arranged for a band performance. If you would prefer an original recording for your first dance, then that’s fine too. Just let the bandleader Stuart know.
Performance time and sets
Depending on the band line-up you book, Azure will perform 2 hours, 2 hours 15 minutes, or 2 hours 30 minutes of live music as shown in the table above. This will be performed as two or three sets depending on your timings for the evening. The band just need a break of at least 20 minutes between sets to rehydrate.
Music for your drinks reception
At many weddings, a drinks reception is a popular option between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. If you’re having a drinks reception at your wedding then you can also have the option of booking the guys to perform beautiful instrumental jazz for you.
This is performed as a duo or trio depending on which evening band you book, and is the perfect enhancement for any drinks reception. The cost for booking the afternoon jazz will be included alongside your quote for the main evening band.
Booking Azure to provide background jazz music for your drinks reception is cheaper than booking a separate band of musicians. It also saves you extra organisational work as it leaves everything safely in the hands of Azure’s bandleader.
