Acoustic Duo and Trio for Events
I think you can agree that you can not go wrong with some smooth soulful sax. The type of atmosphere you can create at an event with that small brass instrument is quite amazing. That’s what you get from my guitar/vocal and sax duo. We’ve performed as a duo and more recently a trio for events all around the UK and parts of Europe. If you want more energy at your event then the trio which features vocals/guitar, sax and percussion is perfect for you. Watch your guests feet tapping and heads bobbing subconsciously as they converse over a few cocktails.
The duo and trio work really well as wedding jazz, at drink receptions, during dinners, corporate cocktail parties, themed restaurant nights, weddings and anniversaries. Our small set up is great for those of you putting on an event with smaller venues. We’re unobtrusive but dressed to impress – some of the UKs favourite Jazz musicians for events.
What do we sound like?
Check out some samples below to get a feel for how my duo and trio for events sounds like. We can provide purely instrumental music with guitar and sax or introduce vocals and percussion for a bigger sound.
What are clients saying?
“Mark and I want to thank you and the band for a fantastic party on our wedding day! Our Guests all commented on how great the band was plus how great the acoustic session was when the canapes were being served. I know a lot of people have already asked for your details (which is how we found you at our friends wedding). Mark and I look forward to hearing you again very soon.”
Becky and Mark – Wedding – September 2018 (Acoustic trio and DJ)
“So many of our guests commented on how good Sheldon and his band were on the day. They played at my brothers wake which we knew would be a difficult occasion but they were so professional. Sheldon was very accommodating in fitting in all the songs we requested. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sheldon and his band.
Thank you again for your excellent performance on such a difficult occasion.”
Amy – Wake – June 2018 (Pure Tones Trio)
“Sheldon’s wedding trio was superb, covering the songs we picked for our playlist as well as some well-chosen gems that captured the mood perfectly, all performed in their own unique funky style. Great soundtrack for our special day, highly recommended”
Yevgeny and Gaby – Wedding – October 2017
“We saw Sheldon and his trio perform at two friends weddings and had such a great time, we knew we wanted to book him for our special day. Now, since having him perform at our own wedding we have experienced the joy of both sides, great fun on the dance floor as well as the ease of working with him to prepare for our day. He and his trio were, professional, dynamic to change based on the flow of the day, charismatic, and they looked sharp! We had a fabulous day! Thank you”
Chloe and Mike – Wedding – September 2017
“We had so much fun at the wedding. The music was fantastic, the songs during the ceremony were integral to creating the atmosphere we desired and your timing was spot on. Throughout the day you really understood and GOT our musical tastes. Everyone loved the selection of tunes for the dancing especially the last track. Thank you for the care and thought put into preparing for our special day and for your complete professional manner from start to finish.”
Charlotte and Gino – September 2016 (wedding) – Duo
“We asked Sheldon to play at our wedding after seeing him perform at another friend’s wedding in 2015. He exceeded our expectations. Sheldon is a consummate professional – he is extremely responsive, helpful, flexible, and reliable. Sheldon created a bespoke musical experience for our wedding from the pre-dinner drinks, to the playlist during the dinner and speeches, to a rocking dance floor to end the evening. I have never seen such a full and happy dance floor, and our friends usually take some persuading! We’ve received lots of compliments on the music since the wedding and would not hesitate to recommend Sheldon and his band to anyone. Thank you so much again, Sheldon!”
