Musical entertainment for micro weddings
From Monday 17th May 2021 the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions will be further eased, and micro weddings (for up to 30 guests) are allowed.
Booking a small music group is a fantastic way of making a micro wedding memorable and Down for the Count's entertainers are sure to delight your guests.
All of the bands we offer here are able to perform either indoors or outdoors, and most of the musicians in Down for the Count also teach music and therefore are regularly tested for COVID-19.
Check out some of the options available below, read a review from a previous micro wedding, and get in touch if you have any questions or would like to discuss entertainment ideas for your micro wedding.
"WOW! How amazing are Down for the Count? They have stayed with us through all the lockdown problems, always willing to change but above all they are just an awesome band, their sound is exceptional and we and all our guests just loved them. They worked with us with the ceremony music, nothing was too much trouble. They helped so much with the wedding dance too. Just so professional, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, and if you love dancing they are THE band to book!"

Entertainment ideas for micro weddings
Acoustic entertainment options and walkabout acts
One of the most popular acts for micro weddings is our walkabout acoustic act The Vintage Strollers. This fun female-led acoustic trio performs lively and uplifting swing, pop and soul music. Whilst it's not usually intended as a "party band" in quite the same way as our larger ensembles, it's a great choice for micro weddings - the band is quieter than many louder bands and therefore is just right for a party of up to 30 guests.
We also offer two other walkabout acts which are great for outdoor events. These are Alexander’s Dixieland Band (a trad jazz band playing jazz and swing music) and Get Brassy (a New Orleans-styled brass band).
All of the above acts are fun and lively, whereas Down for the Count Strings is a more subtle, sophisticated act. But it's certainly not boring - their repertoire of classical and pop music is sure to surprise and entertain you.
Amplified entertainment ideas and static acts
Down for the Count offer a great selection of small jazz bands who provide smart and sophisticated live music for micro weddings. Our 4-piece, vocal led jazz band Hollywood Jazz Band adds a touch of glamour to the occasion; whilst the Lady Gatsby Jazz Band is slightly more raucous and better for dancing to.
For a more subtle band, check out The Soul Essentials which is our small pop and soul band, providing beautiful background music for any event whether indoors or out.
Another option for indoors drinks reception entertainment is a cocktail pianist or an instrumental jazz band.
Finally, for instrumental jazz music check out Jazz Essentials.
Down for the Count have loads of fantastic entertainment options for indoor and outdoor drinks receptions. Remember that if you’re booking them alongside one of our evening party bands we offer fantastic package deals!
We can also create bespoke acts so if you have any ideas, just let us know and we'll see what we can do!
