We also offer an upgrade to this package where we can source a live artist,  jazz band or a celebrity DJ if you are looking for something  a little bit different. Once it is time to proceed for dinner we handle the entrance song for when the bride and groom enter as MR and MRS for the first time and will play some background music to set the mood.

The Gold or Ceremony/Canapes/Reception Package is everything you need to ensure all of your sound/dj requirements are taken care of.

Expect perfection with some surprise features.

LIVE MUSIC

A JAZZ BAND DURING CANAPES

Add some swag to your special day with a little bit of Jazz to set the mood:

Acoustic Jazz Duo – Instrumental 2 piece (sax, double bass)
Acoustic Jazz Trio – Instrumental 3 piece (sax, piano/keyboard, double bass)
Acoustic Jazz Quartet – Instrumental 4 piece (sax, piano/keyboard, bass, drums)
African Jazz Quartet – Instrumental 4 piece (sax, piano/keyboard, bass, drums)

A SAXAPHONIST OR TRUMPETER PLAYING LIVE OVER A DJ

If you want your guests to feel like they are sipping cocktails in Monte Carlo, this option is for you. We offer a live percussionist that plays an acoustic set over deep/tropical house music. This is perfect for canape’s or a sunset session to set the tone. Expect uncontrollable toe tapping from your guests and smiles all round.

 

A MARIMBA BAND TO ADD SOME AFRICAN FLAVOUR

If you are planning a destination wedding in South Africa where you will be hosting foreign guests that might be visiting our beautiful country for the first time, why not add some african flare with the unique sound of a Marimba Band. Great option for pre-drinks as not only will they get your guests into the mood, they will also keep your guests very entertained

The Marimba band consists of 3-4 people using percussion instruments in the form of wooden bars that are struck with mallets producing a soulful and uniquely African sound.

A WEDDING BAND TO KICK OFF THE NIGHT

If you are tossing up the idea of either having a band or a DJ during your reception we suggest having both. A band can add a personal touch to your wedding day and, from our experience, is perfect to kick off the dance floor. As part of our service we are able to source a band that will tick all of your boxes. We will work hand in hand with them and when the time comes to kick it up a notch and elevate the dance floor to the next level, Silkmusic will take over and see you and your guests into the night.
