Wedding Entertainment Ideas

At Jonny Ross Music we have been supplying entertainment for 1000s of weddings and events, with almost a decade of industry experience.

We supply a range of acts, from indie and rock bands, to Motown and soul groups, to the current wedding sensation which is the Saxophone and DJ package. 

We’re going to talk you through our top wedding entertainment ideas, helping you to choose what entertainment is right for your wedding. Make sure your guests have the time of their lives and make your wedding one to remember by browsing our wedding ideas.

Wedding DJ

The wedding reception is one of the most important parts of your wedding day and a DJ is the most popular type of entertainment for wedding receptions.

Our club-style wedding DJs have a wealth of experience and use only the best quality sound and lighting equipment for your reception. A lot of band packages offer a DJ as an add-on, so it is safe to say a DJ is almost essential for your wedding reception entertainment.

At Jonny Ross Music we provide our clients with a DJ request forum, giving you the chance to submit song requests directly to your DJ before the big day. You will liase with your DJ in the coming weeks before your wedding day, giving you the opportunity to discuss in detail any special requests you may have.

Our DJs are professional and reliable, so you should have no fear of a no show when the big day comes around, which is something many couples have panicked about when booking entertainment elsewhere.

Jo Walsh – November 2019

We used Jonny Ross for our wedding in August our DJ was Kyle who was fantastic! Was more than happy to accommodate our not very wedding playlist!! Even let my bride have a go on the decks 🙂 Kyle made our evening do a fantastic occasion! Would recommend to anyone!

Sax & DJ

If you’re looking for that something different for your wedding music, look no further than the sax and DJ package.

This package combines one of our club-style DJs with a saxophonist, delivering a diverse collection of music to cater for all tastes. Wow all your wedding guests with these eye-catching, jaw-dropping performances.

Our Sax & DJ packages can incorporate a number of styles of music into each sets, with house, garage and 90s dance amongst the most popular with the audience. Other sets may include Motown, funk and soul to appease the older generation and some guilty pleasures to tickle everyone’s fancy.

Make your wedding day one to remember with the hottest wedding trends of 2020 and a great choice for any event.

Hannah Sultan – December 2019

Kyle and Laurie DJ and Sax duo were amazing for our wedding! They listened to the style of music we wanted and made everything flow seamlessly, incorporating a mix of music for all ages of guests and even playing along with Indian dohl drummers. They were both really friendly and professional, and Laurie had everyone up dancing along to the sax with him. Highly recommend! Thanks guys!

James Chueng – November 2019

We had Northern House perform at our wedding. We had the best day! So many people commented how great you guys were. The set list was perfect and our first dance song was beautifully played. We wish your music could have gone on all evening. It really made the evening having the live performance – highly recommend.

Acoustic Acts

Personalise your wedding by walking down the aisle to an acoustic version of your favourite song or have your first dance performed live.

Our acoustic acts & duos provide a personalised playlist of music and tailor the package to your event. Each of our acoustic acts have huge, constantly expanding repertoires, earning their reputations as dedicated, hard-working musicians. 

Chloe Sharp – April 2019

We had Marc & Abi perform at our wedding a couple of months ago. From the beginning to end they were the most professional, accommodating, friendly and passionate act I have ever experienced. They retained their energy levels throughout the full day and night and gave 100%. They were engaging, they interacted with the crowd and the dance floor was never once empty! I can not stress enough the importance of the music/entertainment of a wedding, it sets the tone and the guests feed off that energy. Beyond expectations and I would recommend to anyone.

You can create a truly intimiate atmosphere with our actoustic acts, who can provide both brackground and upbeat atmospheres for your wedding. Some of our acoustic acts can be upgraded to full bands for your weddings’ evening reception, giving you the best of both worlds.

Full Day Packages

Pick and choose your favourite acts for a day jam-packed with entertainment.

All of our wedding bands offer day-time acoustic packages on top of the evening entertainment. So, you can be serenaded as you walk down the aisle, followed by more music before your wedding breakfast, all before the wedding reception begins and the party starts!

You can book our Sax & DJ package for the full-day, offering a realaxed, café del mar vibe before your wedding breakfast, followed by the evening party. This is a super-cool way of getting your day going after the wedding ceremony.

Our DJs are equipped with top-quality wireless microphones to be used for your speeches. Sound systems will be set up in time and place for your speeches, providing a hassle free system, leaving you to get on with your day.

Sarah Heritage – April 2019

Colour Blue played our wedding in March 2017. They were brilliant from start to finish! Everyone said at the time how great they were with the sets & songs. The dance floor was full for the whole night! Rob & I were over the moon with how well the reception party went. They also learnt from scratch our First dance song too. Thank you boys!

Jazz Bands

For a more traditional take on wedding entertainment take a look at our jazz bands.

Our jazz groups range from trios to 10-piece bands, playing standards from the Great American Songbook and covering your favourite pop songs in a swing style.

It really is a great way to impress your friends and family and bring a bit of sophistication to your wedding day. 

Mark A. Almond – April 2019

My daughter was lucky enough to have the Jonny Ross 8 person band and DJ for her wedding recently. They were brilliant. It was a wonderful evening. The dance floor was packed. They even got the bride and bridesmaids joining in on stage. Highly recommend them for any occasion.

Festival Wedding

Still can’t decide what entertainment to choose for your wedding reception? Why not pick and choose your favourite acts for that “festival vibe” and keep the live music going all night long.

With our range of styles of bands you can create your own wedding fesitval line-up and choose a headline act! From Mumford-&-Sons style acts to indie/rock bands you can create a line-up with all your favourite tastes. This is a guaranteed way to create a wedding to remember for all of your friends and relatives.

Laura Dugdale – May 2019

Jonny Ross provided all of the bands for our mini-festival event. The music was of a really high standard and everything ran really smoothly. We would definitely recommend.

What an incredible night we had at Valerias night club @ Grantley Hall!!
Danny & Rory were just incredible and made our night! Couldn’t have asked for a better service!!
We will be using you guys again!

George Gascoyne - March 2020

What can we say... without The Wilde Ones at our wedding it would have been half the party it was! The guests all commented on how amazing they were! They literally had everyone on the dance floor from start to finish! Including me! Thank god I changed my heels to comfy trainers! We chose the DJ and Sax package alongside the band and it was the best decision we made because their interaction with our guests made the party! They even let our guests take to the mic 🤣🤣🤣 A huge big thank you to Jonny Ross Music for the showcase at Hornington Manor where we chose our band! Couldn’t recommend you more! Wish we could do it all again!!
Love Kirsty & Jonny Watkins x

Kirsty & Jonny Watkins - February 2020

I had Jonny Ross for my 40th party and they didn’t disappoint. Danny the DJ was great from start to finish the saxophone player was amazing. Everybody has commented on how good the music was all evening. The dance floor was full all night. Fabulous!
Even the communication prior to my party was very professional! Would definitely recommend and use in the future 🎷🎧

Louise Bashizadeh - February 2020

We had a DJ and sax player play at our wedding (in Scotland) instead of a band and they were absolutely brilliant. They turned up and got organised on with plenty of time, were very friendly and engaged and involved our guests which they all loved. The dance floor was packed the whole evening. I would highly recommend using them if you are considering something different for your event or wedding. They were also extremely accommodating considering our wedding was in Scotland and they had to travel from Leeds.
I will 100% be using them again in the future.

Calumn Gallagher-Godsman - January 2020

My husband recently celebrated his 50th birthday & Jonny Ross Music provided the entertainment. We had the DJ, Sax & Percussion package in which the playlist was bespoke to my husband’s favourite dance floor fillers over the decades.
We would both highly recommend this company for any special event if you are looking for unique entertainment of the highest standard.
The atmosphere was electric at our party, & the dance floor never empty.
The customer service we received right from our original enquiry was outstanding & our very talented DJ Danny, Sax player Nick & Percussionist Leon were all so polite, enthusiastic & approachable on the evening.
Thank you for making a 50th birthday party a night to remember!
Nicky, Eliot & Charlie Grant
