You’ve found the dream venue, chosen the fairy-tale dress, but how about the entertainment? There’s a multitude of options out there: wedding DJs, pop and rock wedding bands, classical instrumentalists and many more, but have you considered hiring a festival style pop-folk band for wedding entertainment with a rustic twist?
Who are Wandering Wings?
Wandering Wings are an exciting 5-piece troupe of acoustic musicians who perform an eclectic repertoire of songs, all in their own inimitable feel-good folk fashion. The band features Danny on keys and vocals, Sam on double bass and backing vocals, Dion on acoustic guitar and backing vocals, Max on sax and James on drums. Despite their youthful appearance, the band members are all highly experienced, professional musicians with an impressive live performance pedigree; the band members have appeared on national TV and radio, as well as performing extensively throughout the UK, including prestigious venues like Wembley Stadium and Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club.
What inspires Wandering Wings?
Pop-folk music has exploded into the public consciousness thanks to the likes of Mumford and Sons, Avicii and Of Monsters and Men. Taking inspiration from these trend-setting artists, the Wandering Wings boys came together to form the ultimate festival-style folk wedding band. Decked out in cool country clobber and playing authentic instruments, Wandering Wings offer brides and grooms the next best thing to having the Mumfords at their wedding!
What other styles of music do Wandering Wings play?
As well as Mumford and Sons style songs, Wandering Wings perform folk-inflected renditions of uplifting tunes that span the decades, ranging from golden oldies by Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and the Beatles to modern chart-toppers by Coldplay, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars. Fans of the intervening decades are also generously catered for: a diverse selection of artists including Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, Oasis, Green Day and The Darkness are all in the mix!
A Wide Range of Sets
Hiring an acoustic band like Wandering Wings to provide your wedding entertainment is a versatile choice thanks to their ability to perform a range of different sets, each designed to add the finishing touch to a treasured moment during your special day.
An optional add-on to the main performance, the Wandering Wings acoustic duo on set features tender vocals in perfect harmony with acoustic guitar. The guys can perform a unique, heart-stoppingly romantic ballad to accompany you (or your bride) down the aisle or entertain your guests during the afternoon drinks, generating a relaxed vibe to complement the chatter and laughter of friends and family.
Special Roaming Performance
Wandering Wings offer a special, audience-pleasing roaming set. Because they play acoustic instruments, Wandering Wings are free to wander amongst your guests and treat them to an up-close demonstration of live music at its finest. The band become part of the party, transforming the passivity of watching a band into shared, interactive experience. The set can be tailored to individual guests: a certain song in the band’s repertoire a fave of the father-of-the-bride? Wandering Wings will perform a personal rendition just for him.
Amplified Evening Show
If you’ve got a more traditional evening wedding reception in mind, Wandering Wings perform a fully amplified set for a feel-good festival party. The band arrives at your venue with all the equipment necessary for a spectacular live show, including lighting and sound. The full range of hits from their repertoire is included, which includes something for everyone, from toe-tapping toddlers to grooving grannies and grandpas! To keep the party rocking in between sets, Wandering Wings provide a fully manned DJ service, enabling your guests to request all their favourite songs.
Ideal for Venues with Volume Restrictions
Many wedding venues have restrictions on the volume levels allowed for live music, with some employing sound limiting equipment that will cut the band if they exceed a specified decibel limit. Traditional pop and rock wedding bands struggle to meet the lower decibel limits as, to sound at their best, the rest of the band must be as loud as the full acoustic drum-kit. Wandering Wings play acoustic instruments and don’t use a full kit, meaning they can easily meet even the most stringent of sound restrictions and still sound incredible.
How utterly brilliant, thanks so much for sharing all about your fantastic band with us today xo Lou
