Music to my Ears!

Wedding entertainment is a big thing when it comes to a wedding, we always advise our couples it is one of the first things you need to consider booking once you have your date and venue and it is really important that you get it right. A bad wedding band of bad DJ can be the death of any wedding, no matter how great everything else is. But with so many bands to choose from how do you decide? One of our jobs as a  wedding planner is to find the perfect band for people, to use our contacts and our experience to find the right sort of entertainment and sound for our couples.

We took the opportunity to meet with Uptown Music recently. Uptown Music provide world class and bespoke entertainment for Weddings, Parties and Corporate Events throughout the UK, Europe and Middle East. They personally manage all of their acts so that you can be guaranteed to get the same level of professionalism and expertise at every event. Whether you’re after a solo act for your wedding ceremony or a stunning show band for a corporate party, Uptown Music will provide you with a tailor made experience which is guaranteed to impress you guests.

Uptown Music are based in Brighton but have acts based all over the UK. It was great to have the opportunity to meet with Mark Seacombe at Uptown Music – such a friendly, approachable professional that we cannot wait to work with on future events. After many years, we often struggle with having a good reliable source for different bands as there are so many different band management companies out there so to have somebody so local to us is fantastic and they come highly recommended!

As a wedding planner, this is one area that most couples struggle with as when was the last time you hired a band?! Unless you’re an events professional, a music promoter or keen to throw extravagant birthday parties, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve never been responsible for booking live musical entertainment before. As such, you may be looking around and thinking where to start and how to choose a wedding band that will be appropriate for your wedding, keep your dance floor packed and play that strange request for The Proclaimers that you want.Well, we know that great musical entertainment is often what wedding guests remember from a wedding reception – nobody wants their wedding remembered because of a particularly bad DJ who played Spice Girls on repeat for 20 minutes!

This is where Uptown Music can help. All of their acts feature some of the finest musicians the UK has to offer, their musicians have toured the world and performed everywhere from small intimate world class venues like Ronnie Scotts all the way up to the main stage at Glastonbury. They live and breathe music and will guarantee a performance that’s full of passion, pride and professionalism.


Thinking about music for your wedding? It’s a great way to get the party started, and keep the party going! Live musicians have a special way of exciting a crowd like no ipod and speaker ever could. If you can find it in your budget to squeeze this in, you really should
