3 Live Music Ideas for Toronto Weddings!

Toronto Wedding Band - GTA Wedding Musicians - Toronto Jazz Collective

Looking for some ideas for live music for your Toronto Wedding?

Below are our 3 top recommendations from the TJC Team.

Have a Jazz band play old school jazz standards and contemporary hits with a jazzy twist! This can add an extra touch of elegance and sophistication to your Toronto Wedding by hiring a Toronto Jazz Trio for your cocktail hour. If you can have the band set up outside on a patio at a venue like Palais Royale then even better!

Here's an example of our TJC Trio playing a mix of old swing and modern contemporary hits!

2) Cover Band playing Mashups for your Wedding Reception!

here are literally hundreds of Toronto Wedding Bands to choose from that all play the same top 40's repertoire. Wouldn't it be a treat to have a wedding band that did their own thing with your favourite songs? Wouldn't it be refreshing to hear these songs played together as mashups or re harmonizations? We can tell you from experience that it is an absolute breath of fresh air! Check out the amazing band Pomplamoose (below) playing a mashup of Ain't No Mountain High Enough and My Girl. Our TJC Wedding Band loves playing this one and many of the top Pomplamoose and Scary Pockets arrangements!

3) String Ensemble playing Top 40's & Pop Hits for your Wedding Ceremony!

Have you ever heard a String Trio play "Just The Way You Are" by Bruno Mars or "Let it Be" by The Beatles or "Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve during a Wedding Ceremony? If not, then now is the time! Your ears will thank you. Many of these popular songs can be re-arranged for strings and sound very warm and full with the violin, viola and cello combo!

Here's an example of our String Trio playing a few of our favourite pop songs!
