Cocktail Reception Bands & Musicians

The following Bands and Musicians have experience performing for cocktail receptions and cocktail hours. These types of performances tend to be short in length. Not only does the repertoire have to be broad, the music needs to be performed quietly to allow guests to converse. Smaller combos (often sub-sets from a larger band) and solo musicians (often just the pianist from a larger band) are generally your best choice.
