Music for Wedding Ceremonies

Looking for an amazing instrumental version of your favorite song for your wedding ceremony?  What about a more traditional wedding ceremony with classics from Wagner, Mendelssohn, and Bach? Our guitarist, Steve Schaefer, has you covered. Steve is a classically trained guitarist and has been crafting amazing guitar transcriptions for weddings since before we started playing weddings as a band. His talent is undeniable and his ceremony performances are always received with rave reviews. His services can be added to the band's wedding performance package or he can be hired on his own.

Songs included in the video are "Stand  By Me"- Ben E. King, "Hallelujah"- Leonard Cohen, and "Fix You"- Coldplay


Just a few...

"Holy F****** S***!  That was single-handedly the best performance we have ever witnessed ANYWHERE.  You guys are honestly the most talented musicians we’ve ever seen, you MADE the wedding. Like we've seen you all play in person before, multiple times and you’re always awesome, but our wedding was the absolute best performance we could have ever hoped for!  You blew the doors off any other band/ DJ we have ever seen!  We made a lot of choices for the wedding... venue, photo, video, cake flavors, favors, and so forth, but choosing you all as our band, is truly the best choice out of any. We have no words to describe the energy, passion and talent that you all exuded in your performance.  You left every guest blown away, impressed, and drunk, haha!   Great music lends to a good mood and that usually means more drinking!  From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!"
