Jewish Wedding Band London
Over the past decade Ambassador Jewish wedding band has been burning up dancefloor all across the UK and beyond. As a band we have supported Jennifer Hudson, Beverley Knight and been the house band on multiple Rory Bremner chat shows. We have performed for Royalty on multiple occasions as well as celebrities and countless famous brands. Members within the band have performed on stages with the likes of Joss Stone, John Legend, Jack Savoretti, Florence and the Machine and Emeli Sande to name just a few.
We have grown and evolved over the years into a band we are all proud of and now bring a concert style performance to every party and event we perform at. Not only is the band made up of amazing musicians but also amazing performers with fierce energy and stage presence. Our singers and brass section are all very interactive and love to get everyone involved with dance moves, conga lines and even a bit of limbo! Often our singers spend more time on the dance floor than on stage!
We also strongly believe that image is everything and we pride ourselves on how we look. We have many different clothing options available and always ensure we look pristine on every event. Take a look at our video page to see for yourself.
Israeli Dancing Showband London
It goes without saying that you want an outstanding live band at your evening reception party and there are many bands around to choose from. However it is also very important that the band you decide to book has experience in performing at Jewish weddings and more importantly performing Israeli dancing music. A good Simcha band will not only be able to provide great party music for dancing later in the evening, but will also offer a fantastic medley of Israeli Dancing to start the night of with a bang and the option for more Israeli dancing later in the evening if requested. Ambassador band have performed at Jewish weddings for the past 10 years and have specialist fluent Hebrew speaking/singing members, with a vast knowledge and experience of performing all types of Jewish music. Over the years we have honed our craft and built our Jewish repertoire into something magical. Our medleys are exciting and high-octane with outstanding vocal arrangement and killer horn lines that never fail in getting EVERYONE in the room up and dancing.
More commonly these days the female members of the band join in with the Israeli dancing and this does add to the overall sound. However we do understand that some Jewish weddings may be more orthodox than other and we are happy to perform this section of the evening with just the male members.
Beyond the Israeli dancing we can also cater for any other specialist music need throughout the evening, including both the English and Israeli National Anthems – God Save the Queen and Hatikvah.
Here is a list of some of the more popular Israeli dancing songs we perform on a regular basis – Moshiach, Have Nagila, Siman Tov and Mazel Tov, Ketzad, Chosen Kale Mazel Tov, Yidn, Chazak Chazak, Salam, Od Yishama, Hevenu Shalom Aleichem, Balbeli Otto, Kol Haolam Kulo.

Jewish Simcha Band London
We are often asked what the traditional format of a Jewish wedding is. The simple answer is that there isn’t one. Every Jewish wedding we perform at differs a little form the last one. Any wedding is a special event designed to meet the requirements of a bride and groom as they come together on their special day and a Jewish wedding is the same.
Your Jewish wedding can be as traditional or contemporary as you desire. We can help you mix traditional Jewish dances with contemporary dances. You as the bride and groom should choose what to include in your special day based on how traditional the wedding festivities will be.
Modern couples may decide to devote a part of their Jewish wedding reception music to participating in classic traditional dances. This decision will often rest upon the couple’s own wishes, requests from the family or the number of guests who are familiar with more traditional Jewish wedding dances. If you discuss your wishes and feelings with us then we can help you decide on the best format for your Jewish wedding.
Ambassador band have all of these areas covered and are experienced in performing at all types of Jewish weddings and events. All of our band members understand the traditional aspects involved in a Jewish wedding and endeavour to make the whole day a seamless and memorable occasion.
Don’t just take our word for it. Please take a look at our Testimonials page where you can read reviews from our past clients dating back over 10 years. We have also listed a few of the Jewish wedding highlight review below for you.

Michael and Katie, Jewish Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London – 30th December 2018
One word, amazing! I can’t recommend this band enough for a wedding, or any fun event! I picked Ambassador band for our wedding in October after having researched over 10 different bands. I knew straight away they were the right ones, as their range of music is incredible and also their styling is awesome, something equally as important to us. Not only that but the band leader, Geoff was extremely quick to reply to ALL of my questions and was super lovely from the get go. Our friends and family were equally as impressed with them – their energy and vibes kept everyone having a fantastic time throughout the night. Thanks guys :-) x
Paula and Ben Loftus, Jewish wedding at Hatfield House – 14th October 2018
These guys performed at our wedding in September 2018. The process of booking them was incredibly smooth and they communicated brilliantly with us before the day. They let us have input in the set list and were incredibly flexible. They did a stunning Israeli dancing set, as well as their usual fabulous stuff. They really know how to get people up on the dance floor and moving, they are so incredibly tight as a band and each member is outstanding in their own right. Their singers got on the floor with us and really got involved with the guests. They were professional, fun and lively throughout and I’d recommend them for any event you’re planning!
Max and Sophie, Jewish Wedding at Forman’s Restaurant in London – 2ndSeptember 2018
I want to thank you for your amazing work at our wedding. Your music made the party great. The horah was wonderful and you played so many of our favourite songs. Also, Geoff’s meticulous planning in advance really inspired confidence in the months leading up to the wedding. We appreciated all the organization. I would recommend your band to ANYONE looking to hire one. In fact, one couple at the wedding that’s looking to get married said they would seriously consider hiring Ambassador because you did such a wonderful job. THANK YOU!
Alanna and Simon, Jewish wedding at Skylon Restaurant in London – 3rd September 2017
Wow, wow, wow!!! Ambassador you MADE our wedding!! What can we say?! Incredible, talented, balls of energy. We have never seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding before, dancing and singing away enjoying themselves all night. The hardest job in the world is to entertain a room full of guests where the majority of them are either professional entertainers from the West End or Tv themselves. This said you absolutely blew everyone away and we had guests talking about the band days later! We couldn’t of wished for a better group of gorgeous singers, musicians and of course your technician. If anyone at all is contemplating booking Ambassador Band for their function, don’t wait!! Book them straight away because they made our wedding day! From a very happy Bride and Groom – The Marquiss’s x

Wow Ambassador, where do we start. The ultimate super band! Professional, talented, entertaining and incredible. My new husband and I couldn’t be more pleased by the way Ambassador got everyone up on the dance floor ALL evening!!! They listened to exactly what we wanted from music for our ceremony to the type of music for the evening. We also requested Ambassador to learn a traditional Sicilian song, which they leant and played brilliantly. Geoff has been trusting and helpful from the word go. This is not just a wedding band but a show band! To have them play at our wedding was the best decision ever and we highly recommend them as a top quality band. Everyone at the wedding was raving about them! 10/10. Thanks to Geoff and the Team.

Lewis and Laura Maleh, wedding at Gibson Hall in London – 29th December 2012
Getting the music right is such a crucial part of a wedding but we got it spot on when we contacted you. From the beginning you were so flexible and friendly offering a truly personalised service. The fact that you made sure that every detail was just right totally put us at ease and meant that we knew we were in safe hands. I knew we would have great party! What a party it was…. everyone commented on the musicianship but also how right for us it was – you really captured what we were trying to create. From the first burst of music everyone was hooked and the quality kept coming. Awesome, Amazing and Incredible were words that I constantly heard people describing you as, everyone was so impressed. I kept looking around at the full dance floor and smiling, and the fact that everyone was shouting for more at the end was more than we could have hoped for. Anyway I could go on all day – thank you so so much for working so hard to make our day so special – you really were a crucial element of the day, We were really lucky to find you!
