Picture this. You’re halfway through a slice of wedding cake, working to keep a conversation going with your reception tablemates, and ﬁghting the urge to check the time on your phone. Again.
It’s your close friend’s wedding, so you had planned on staying all the way through the sparkler sendoff. At this point, though, the call of your bed is ofﬁcially louder than the music streaming from the DJ booth. And a lot more appealing, too.
The truth? You’re two bites of cake away from making a break for the nearest exit. And you’re terriﬁed of guests feeling exactly the same way on your wedding day.
We get it. On YOUR wedding day, you want it all. An elevated atmosphere for your ceremony and a killer reception that’s talked about for months—make that years—to come. Your mother’s nod of approval as you walk down the aisle and a dance floor that stays full all night long.
And forget about the hassle of hiring multiple musicians, DJs, and bands. You'd prefer to work with one company that can meet ALL your entertainment needs for an entire weekend of events.
After performing at 350+ events in Southwest Florida and beyond, we know exactly how to set the tone for your ceremony, keep guests entertained throughout cocktail hour, and max out the capacity of your dance floor until your getaway car pulls up.
“After talking to Jade and meeting her in person I knew that they were going to be a great ﬁt for our day. I asked if they could do three speciﬁc songs for our ceremony and they had no problem learning them and playing them. They are extremely talented and easy to work with. Great response times and very professional. I can't recommend them enough! You will not be disappointed."
A lot of entertainment companies talk about creating the “perfect atmosphere.” What they don’t discuss quite as much? Creating the perfect atmosphere for you.
Sure, Pachelbel’s Canon is a classic. But if walking the aisle to Panic! At the Disco is more your vibe, we’re alllll about it. Our big-picture approach to entertainment takes your style, your story, AND the sound of your day into account.
From ceremony entrance to grand exit, here’s how we’ll help you hit the right note.
We’ll kick things off with a video chat to ensure we understand your entertainment needs and overall vision for the day. Once your contract has been signed, you’ll receive a detailed questionnaire that makes it easy to identify the right songs for each section of your ceremony. If you’ve decided to book a DJ + Strings Synthesis package, your DJ will be in touch to discuss preferences for your cocktail hour and reception.
Your inbox is already exploding with event-related communication, so the last thing we want to do is add to the overwhelm! Our private planning portal keeps all of your entertainment information in one place, and our access-it-anywhere app makes it easy to narrow down song selections and share a “do not play” list with your DJ. You can even invite your partner, close friends, or key family members to contribute a few song choices!
On the day of your wedding or event, your DJ will arrive 2.5 hours before your ceremony to set up sound equipment in all agreed-upon locations. Ceremony musicians will arrive at least one hour in advance to run a sound check. To establish a serene ambiance for guest arrival, music will commence 30 minutes prior to your ceremony. All that’s left for YOU is to say “I do!”
“Worth every penny! Jade and her girls were AMAZING to work with. My entire experience with them was great—from initial inquiry to after the ceremony! The music was so romantic and raw, I could never replace that with music from a speaker! Hiring them was the best decision I made for our day!"
The violin is our most commonly selected instrument because of its versatility. As the lead instrument in an orchestra, a violin can be paired with anything and acts as the melody for every song selection.
The cello is a larger, deeper version of the violin. It creates a rich, romantic ambiance when played solo, and also pairs beautifully with other string instruments.
The harp is unique because of its versatility and striking size. Weighing in at over 200 pounds, the harp is ideal for a church ceremony, backyard soiree, or large event space. Harps and beaches, however? Not a match made in heaven. Since the harp accompanies itself, it can be selected as the sole instrument if desired.
The ukulele is ideal for bohemian-style events and laidback locations like the beach. It performs best when paired with vocals or the violin, and therefore cannot be selected as the sole instrument.
The piano is traditional and timeless; however, it is also difficult (and expensive) to transport. The good news? Most churches and some other venues will have a piano available on site.
Layering vocals and strings is a wonderful way to highlight meaningful moments during your ceremony, such as a family blessing or the lighting of the unity candle. Vocals can also add a special touch to your cocktail hour and reception!
In addition to locking in an upbeat emcee for your after party, when you add a DJ to your package, you’ll also enjoy complimentary amplification for your ceremony instruments AND uplighting at your reception!
Ideal for cocktail hours, wedding receptions, and corporate events, our synthesis packages combine the energy of a DJ with the excitement of an electric violin and/or saxophone. The result? A dynamic surround-sound experience your guests won’t soon forget.
