On WeddingWire since 2023
Weddings require a lot of planning. From the venue, the florist, the caterer, and everything else, we try to make your music and reception entertainment one of the easiest things to book. Need sound for your ceremony and officiant? We've got you covered. Lo-Fi Jukebox provides a complete PA with wireless mics for announcements and speeches. Our musicians have an incredible wealth of experience performing and are also fully capable of emceeing your event, welcoming the wedding party into the reception, and making sure that the evening runs as smoothly as possible.
WHAT WE PROVIDE:
- First and foremost, we provide two beautiful baby grand piano shells that will bring elegance and class to your wedding reception.
- A complete PA system with a wireless microphone for speeches and announcements.
- For larger venues, additional amplification may also be added.
- Stage lighting and dance lights for when the party starts on the dance floor.
- We will also emcee your event, making sure that dinner, speeches, and special dances, run smoothly.
- We also provide add-on services for the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and uplighting for the reception area.
- We can provide live, acoustic music for your ceremony or cocktail hour as well. If a piano and PA need to be relocated, there is a small additional fee.
WEDDING CEREMONY: For the ceremony, our musicians are able to provide live music or prerecorded versions of the songs that you have chosen. When we reach out, we provide a template for you to fill out with your special song requests. Our talented musicians will learn these for your ceremony. (Add-on)
COCKTAIL HOUR: We're able to provide background music for your cocktail hour. As friends and family are drinking, chatting, and catching up on each other's lives, we can provide a nice relaxed, low-key setting for everyone to get prepared for dinner and the dancing and singing that will be coming later. (Add-on)
WEDDING RECEPTION: After your guests have been fed and a few drinks have been had, it's time to start the fun! The reception is where we really shine. Dueling pianos is all about audience interaction, whether it's singing, clapping, or dancing to the music that you and your guests choose. We keep the party going while you create the set list for the evening. Request slips allow everyone to submit their favorite songs, and we keep the music going from start to finish. For weddings, we highly recommend including a drummer. While we definitely have no problem getting people to dance with just two players and one usually playing keyboard drums, a drummer takes the performance to an entirely different level!
SPECIAL REQUESTS: If you have any special requests, please let us know, and we can see if it's something that we can accommodate. We try to make the booking process as simple as possible and will be in contact about special songs that need to be learned to make your day truly unforgettable.
