An Acoustic Version Of The Band

An acoustic version of the band is offered as a classy daytime option, perfect for drinks receptions and early evenings as guests are arriving. 'The 45's Acoustic' option is available both by itself and also as part of a whole day package (wedding packages here). Alternatively, for later in the evening, this is also a brilliant solution for venues where noise levels are an issue or for when a more laid back style of music is required.
