Our pianist is one of the top jazz and classical piano players in the country. Together both he and our front-man Shane perform a high-class, well-planned and personal ceremony recital including gospel, classical and modern songs from their unique repertoire.
Upon arrival Harlequin can play a really cool Southern / New Orleans Jazz set, or a traditional Irish and ballads possibly in the foyer, for your arrival. The volume of the Jazz portion of the entertainment is nice and low so that your guests can mingle, natter and catch up. Our Jazzy service includes all of the best hits from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Burt Bacharach, Michael Buble, Harry Connick Junior, Bobby Darin, Nat ‘King’ Cole and Ray Charles. For the Jazz Connoisseurs we can offer a serious jazz service which is fronted by our saxophonist virtuoso Michael Buckley whom is widely regarded as the best Irish saxophonist alive. This set includes music from Charlie Mingus, the Brecker Brothers, Duke Ellington and John Coltrane naming a few to whet your appetite.
We can also organise a guitar duo for your wedding guests arrival if you so wish. Samples of our reception music can be found on our LISTEN PAGE.
These days we often get requests for something DIFFERENT / ALTERNATIVE in terms of Champagne / Arrivals Reception entertainment. In 2010 we designed something special for these type of events.
Our front–man Shane and guitarist Mark have put together a really cool selection of acoustic / jazzy duelling guitars-type recital with songs. This gig would include songs and background music encompassing many MODERN CLASSICS AND ALTERNATIVE ANTHEMS. You might even hear an original song of theirs thrown-in for good measure.
Many of our 20 and 30-something wedding couples go for this option which often transpires into a good sing-song in which guests like to accompany the guys for a ditty or two. At 4pm in the afternoon? Now that is different… But we like to GET THE PARTY WARMED UP NICE AND EARLY!
