Sheldon Conrich – Music For Weddings
We all know that your wedding day will be one of the most memorable moments in your life. And that’s why it’s important to get everything just the way you want it. My job as a your musician is to understand your musical needs and bring them to life on your special day.
I’ve been providing music for weddings and events for over ten years and no two weddings are alike. My experience has helped me understand exactly what couples are looking for down to the smallest musical detail. My aim is to create the perfect mix of music so that you and your guests will remember it for years to come.
What Do I Do?
As a guitarist, pianist and singer I try to offer as many options to you as possible. Why shop around for multiple bands and musicians – racking up your costs – when you can find all you need in one place? I offer a range of musical set ups for your ceremony, reception, during dinner and at the party. I can go out as a solo performer, with my duo, trio, full band, DJ live or as a DJ.
Let me set the scene. Your guests walk into to the reception area greeted by an acoustic guitarist and a warm ambience. As the night rolls on and guests sit down for dinner you can hear a cool sax player jamming some familiar tunes with the guitarist. And with the drinks flowing you and your guests move to the dance floor for a boogey into the wee hours. One of your guests notices the DJ looks very much like the guitarist. Whether you are looking for reception music or would like something throughout the whole day I’m happy to be involved in any way. Sheldon Conrich – music for weddings.
What Clients Are 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)
“Sheldon’s wedding trio were 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 Gabi – Wedding – October 2017 (DJ and acoustic trio)
Everyone said to us before the wedding “make sure you have a good wedding band, because that will make or break the day'” (no pressure at all!!), but you totally blew our expectations away. Song selection, instrumentals, and vocals were outstanding. We really wanted a wedding with a lot of dancing and you kept the dance floor packed all night. All our guests have been raving about you – we had friends who hadn’t been on a dance floor for 15 years going for it! The transition from ceremony, to dinner band to full-on dance band and then DJ was seamless – awesome. Special thanks to Alex for the acoustic guitar and vocals in the ceremony and then the cover of “The Wonder of You” for our first dance – just perfect.
Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding! We really enjoyed having you there.
Lyndon and Kirstin – Wedding – September 2017 (White Diamond Function Band)
‘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 adapt to changes in the flow of the day, charismatic, and they looked sharp! We had a fabulous day! Thank you.’
Chloe and Mike – Wedding – September 2017 (DJ live trio)
I was a bit worried about arranging music for our wedding but from the first phone call with Sheldon I knew it’d be fine. He was very relaxed and really helpful and it all worked out brilliantly at our reception – everything from the music during the meal to the first dance to a special request for us leaving was perfect and the fact that the dance floor was so popular was very much down to his and the band’s energy, enthusiasm and talent! You never know if people will be up for dancing but as soon as he invited couples to join us after the first dance it was packed and stayed packed for the rest of the evening. He even arranged some uplighters for us which really transformed the dance floor and everyone had such a good time, both the guests and the band because you could tell they were enjoying playing as well. What a night, thank you Sheldon!
Chris and Sandra – Wedding – September 2017 (White Diamond Function Band)
My eyes and ears genuinely lit up the day I found Sheldon, he had the most professional website, he was passionate and tech savvy enough to have video blogs. For a future bride to bride I loved watching them and picturing my own big day. It wasn’t just that though because the first time I emailed Sheldon, I had an instant and helpful response and within a day, we were speaking on the phone. He knew exactly what to say and even explained that rather than paying for a DJ, he could do it all in one. This made perfect sense to me, as my experience juggling suppliers for events, I was desperate to hire one pro to take over one element of the wedding. And choosing Sheldon to organise the audio was the best decision I could have made.
What would I rate Sheldon out of ten? I couldn’t he was too fantastic!! All I wish is I could do it all again and I would hire him all over again
Cat and Tim – Wedding – August 2017 (Singing guitarist and DJ)
“We got married in Italy and Sheldon was very very easy to deal with. He was on time, did exactly what he said he was going to do. Just brilliant, he’s incredibly talented.”
Andy and Laura – Wedding – Lake Como – August 2017 (Che Bello Duo)
We chose DJ Shel for our wedding party after an exhaustive search on Google. We were looking for someone to create a really intimate party atmosphere with a wide range of music to cater for all age groups and had been encouraged by his website and Instagram posts. Following a couple of ‘get to know you’ phone calls, we decided that he was the DJ for us, so we went ahead and hired him. This turned out to be an excellent decision.
DJ Shel hit the nail on the head. He played all our requested music and we were delighted with the overall feel of the night. The party was very successful and we had a lot of compliments from our guests for how fabulous the whole wedding was including the party.
We would be very happy to recommend DJ Shel to anyone.
Andy and Katie – Wedding – August 2017 (DJ Shel)
“Sheldon performed 3 45 minute sets at our wedding, our first dance and then was our DJ for the rest of the evening. From our first conversation, Sheldon was fantastic. He even learnt a song from a YouTube video for our first dance and it was perfect! All our guests have commented how good he was. The choice of songs was perfect and he had everyone dancing until the end of the night. Highly recommend!
Thank you again for everything. You helped make our day perfect and so special”
Larna and Jamie – Wedding – July 2017 – (Singing guitarist and DJ)
“Our wedding was an intimate occasion in a small hotel in Henley on Thames. Sheldon was an integral part of this, playing and singing live for our reception drinks and later DJ for our party. His live act was outstanding- creating a convivial atmosphere for our reception and complimented by many of our guests. We appreciated Sheldon’s versatility and helpfulness – filling in gaps when needed with great background music for our civil ceremony and over dinner, changing plans due to bad weather and the time he took to understand what we were looking for before the day. We think Sheldon was a real ‘find’ and would recommend him to anyone! ”
Sonal and Jeff – Wedding – July 2017 – (Singing guitarist and DJ)
I would like to say a massive thank you for your performance at mine and Nicola’s wedding – I believe the two sets that you played in the courtyard really made the wedding, and is one of the main things that people have been commenting on. Having our first dance sung rather than played by a DJ was really special, and your level of professionalism was second to none.
I would recommend your services to anybody having a wedding, or any other special occasion, and once again would like to thank you for making our day that little bit more special.
Chris and Nicola – Wedding – June 2017 – (Singing guitarist)
Sheldon performed at Laura’s and my wedding, in the south of France in May 2017. He played guitar, sang vocals and DJ-ed, for the duration of the festivities.The whole day was an incredible success, and Sheldon was an integral part of that. In addition to his musical and DJing abilities, he is extremely communicative, helpful and adaptable. His experience and calm demeanour helped things run more smoothly.
Throughout the whole process, pre-, during and post-wedding, he was really easy to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending using Sheldon, if you need a DJ and/or musician.
David and Laura – Wedding – South of France, May 2017 – (Singing guitarist and DJ)
With a small venue we couldn’t have a large set up with a full band and we were worried we wouldn’t get maximum impact, but this wasn’t a problem with Sheldon and he far exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Communication from the first enquiry, right down to the day after our wedding was professional and friendly. He understood what we were wanting for our day and we had a full dance floor all night! The early part of the reception was classy with the acoustic guitar and saxophone and later in the night Sheldon delivered song after song as our DJ. But by far, the best part was that Sheldon had taken the time to learn our first dance song and perform it. It isn’t often that the bride and groom are surprised on their own wedding day by someone else! Sheldon was definitely a key part in making our day so special and would recommend him to anyone looking for live music for their event or wedding.
Laura and Nick – Wedding – February 2017 – (Duo and DJ)
We’re so glad we had Sheldon DJ at our wedding. He played every single one of our favourite tunes and threw in his own ones which blended perfectly with what we wanted. His mixing was seamless and he kept people of all ages on the dance floor from the 1st track to the last. He is a great guy and very easy to work with. If you want a wicked DJ for your party, then Sheldon is your man!
Adam and Susie – Wedding – December 2016 (DJ)
“My husband and I hired Sheldon to perform throughout our wedding day in September.Sheldon was a pleasure to work with on the lead up to the wedding, with great communication, support and ideas – just what we needed through the planning stages! Our evening guests were blown away with Sheldon’s early evening performance and they loved hearing some modern songs with great twists. Sheldon finished the night with a 3 hour DJ set comprising of all our favourite songs. Thank you so much Sheldon, you made the atmosphere of our special day exactly how we wanted it! We would hire you again in a heartbeat!”
Ali and John – wedding – September 2016 – (Solo and DJ)
“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 – wedding – September 2016 (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!”
