This is more detailed look at what we would provide:
Pre Chuppah - as guests arrive, warming up the atmosphere
Ceremony - Music for processions (You would choose the appropriate music for parents, bridesmaids, groom and bride)
Music during Chuppah - Eshet Chayil etc. Accompanying the Rabbi/Chazan. We can also sing the Chazanut, Sheva Brachot.
Post Chuppah - Joyous Simcha music as groom stamps on the glass. Sometimes spontaneous dancing breaks out at this point.
Reception: Atmospheric background Jewish music (Klezmer/Israeli/Ladino/Yiddish)
Dinner: Welcoming the guests into the dinner hall with gentle atmospheric music, gradually building to a Simcha dance “groove” and welcoming you into the hall.
Simcha dance set 1 - 20 mins - you up on chairs, Siman Tov etc.
If we feel it is necessary to “help” the dancers, Maurice will get on the floor and guide (not Led Israeli)
Background music for meal - a selection of gentle atmospheric Jewish/Israeli/Ladino music, both live and recorded.
Dance set 2 (&3) - can be “Led Israeli” - a selection of Israeli folk dances led and called by Maurice, circle, partner and line dances. This brings everyone together and especially popular if there are non-Jewish guests.
DJ - We work with an excellent DJ team to provide the non-Jewish music for which you can supply a playlist.
The DJ would provide stage and dance floor lighting.
Room lighting is charged extra.
We will supply a full PA system. The size of the room could affect the cost.
Microphones will be provided for speeches if necessary.
Shir can MC the evening if required and advise on production aspects - running order, lights etc.
We would also meet with you to discuss the music, running order etc.
We will coordinate with the Rabbi/Chazan and other service providers if necessary
