LIVE MUSIC FOR WEDDING RECEPTIONS AND CEREMONIES
Over the last 15 years, Night & Day Band has performed successfully at hundreds of weddings and receptions in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. We have established a solid reputation as one of the most exciting and reliable wedding bands in the area. If you are searching for the perfect swing and variety band or ensemble to provide live music for your wedding day, Night & Day is the clear choice.
Night & Day has the versatility and flexibility to meet all of your musical needs, including ceremony, cocktail, background, listening, and dance music. For smaller, more intimate weddings, we offer jazz/swing combos up to five pieces. For larger receptions, our six- and seven-piece variety wedding band may be the best choice. We will work closely with you on your musical dance choices (first wedding dance, parents dance, last wedding dance). Over our many years of performing wonderful live music for weddings in Washington DC, MD and VA, we have received many compliments about our ability to "read the crowd." This is an extremely important skill at a wedding reception, where the guests may range in age from toddlers to seniors. We are experts at sensing when it’s time to change the beat.CONTACT US »
PROGRESSION OF THE MUSIC FOR A TYPICAL WEDDING
This first list of musical samples demonstrates how the music might progress during a “typical” wedding reception. We begin with mellow, jazzy instrumental pieces appropriate for the cocktail and dinner phase. This is the time your guests want to converse, and the music should set the mood without getting in the way. The tempo picks up as the evening progresses, with more swing and big band numbers to energize your crowd. At the peak of the party the music moves to oldies, Motown and classic rock for dancing, with romantic ballads sprinkled in. As your wedding draws to a close, the music of our wedding band has reflected the many moods of the evening:
This playlist is to show the broad range of dance music that Night & Day plays. To function as a successful variety wedding band for dancing at your wedding, you must be able to play jazz, big band, swing, jump, Latin, Motown, and Classic Rock. All of these styles are demonstrated by the band in the samples below.
