Music and dancing to bring joy to a wedding day.

Hire a wedding band of talented musicians to play and bring joy to a special day.

The sound of music fills the air,
A beat that makes the heart repair.
A band of talented musicians play,
Bringing life to a wedding day.

The dance floor comes alive with grace,

A joy that dances into the night.

A Cautionary Tale

Come close if you must, 

to my heart of rust. 


Taste my sorrows

of ash and honey,


beneath the illusion

your life’s a mess, 

you’ll fall in line 

with the rest.

It’s not too late,

A piece that has gone well, they let out a
