Smooth Jive Packages
The Smooth Jive Consultants offer a versatility and flexibility that other wedding/function bands just can’t offer. With close to 40 years music industry experience between them, the Smooth Jive team bring a flare of professionalism and fun to any event, whether it be your fairytale wedding or your company christmas part.
Our qualified and experienced musicians can play in many different or interchangeable configurations for your wedding/event, and whilst we will tailor every package to the specific needs of each individual client, the below packages can give you an idea of some of the ways we are often booked…
Weddings are our specialty
The Smooth Jive Consultants specialise in making wedding days perfect. We have been performing at wedding ceremonies and receptions for over 10 years, and we know what it takes to make them memorable and special.
Wedding receptions require certain types of music – a cruisey background vibe during canapés and dinner, a rocking dance set after speeches so your guests can dance the night away, and of course, the SJC team is happy to learn special request songs so that your first dance as a couple is accompanied by a full live band. We also provide a full sound system with microphones for speeches.
Aren’t confident your newly minted brother-in-law has what it takes to MC? Does he enjoy the odd beer? By 9pm is he going to be coherent? We can also provide MC and ‘fill-in’ MC services as part of the package. We’ve been doing it for years. Just ask – it’s no extra charge!
7-Piece band for your Wedding Reception of function 4-6 Hour package that gives you the band for the duration of your reception.
Our most popular package. You can have the band for up to 6 hours, which will more than cover the time for most Wedding Receptions. Your price includes everything – no hidden charges. That means the PA system, the lighting and transport is all covered. The SJC crew bring a powerful PA system to all of their gigs, and you are free to make use of this for speeches, your MC, playing music from iPods etc. Also an option within this package is to use the band for other jobs on the night. As well as our rocking dance set, this package also gives you the option for some acoustic music during dinner, using the band to play your bridal waltz – or even using our frontman Dave B as your MC (and he puts on a good show!).
5-Piece band for your Wedding Reception of Function 4-6 Hour Package with a smaller band, but with the great Smooth Jive sound.
For those with budget in mind, we can strip down to a 5-piece unit for the reception music. But still offer a great sound. The main disadvantage is that this usually means moving from dual to single vocalists (which limits song choice and loses some vocal depth). However, it’s still a great sound and the guys are still able to multi-task (dinner music, background music as well as the dance/party set).
The “Unlimited” Package The ultimate in flexibility. Use the band for reception music, cocktail music, dinner music and more!
The “unlimited” package is perfect for those who don’t want to feel constrained by time. The Band is available to you for the entire day, no strings attached. This is perfect for those who would like music at both the ceremony and the reception, receptions that are planned to run longer than the standard 6 hour call, those who are hosting the ceremony and reception at the same venue and want the flexibility of providing entertainment between the ceremony and the reception, music lovers in general!
