Drinks Reception

Create a special atmosphere for your guests



Davey Music Weddings Drinks Reception

Providing music during your drinks reception can create a special atmosphere for your guests, as they await your return from your photo session. We can provide the full range of traditional Irish instruments during this time, as well as female or male vocalists, everything from solo harp to a folk group. Solo harp or harp & flute will create a relaxing and intimate atmosphere, or if you would like something more lively, we can provide a larger group for a session of upbeat Irish traditional music, featuring a combination of guitar, flute, uilleann pipes, fiddle and more, with or without vocalist. We can also provide background music on piano if there is a suitable instrument available at the venue, or we can provide a piano if required.

As the drinks reception performance is usually informal and in the background, there is usually no need to plan it in advance with a specific repertoire but we can always include any tunes or songs you think your guests would particularly enjoy. The same applies to background music during the dinner although our preferred repertoire for this is generally more relaxed and appropriate to the setting.
