An experienced Jewish wedding band for hire

Selecting the perfect Jewish wedding band and entertainment  is a big decision and one that you need to get right in order for your big day to run smoothly. It goes without saying that you want an amazing live band in the evening and there are many bands around that can do this. However it is also important that the band you choose has experience in performing at Jewish weddings.

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 fantastic20 minute medley (with the option of additional if requested) for the Hora and the ability to provide a smaller experienced band for the Chuppah ceremony.

In addition to this it is always nice to have the option of live music at the drinks reception and even through dinner as part of any Jewish wedding entertainment London. Ambassador 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 in London and endeavour to make the whole day a seamless and memorable occasion.

The format of your Jewish wedding

We are often asked what is the “normal” format of a Jewish wedding. The simple answer is that there isn’t 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 and secular music. 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.

Music for the Chuppah Ceremony

For the Chuppah ceremony many clients like to have traditional, live music which will normally come in the form of a duo or a trio. Traditionally this would be a clarinet, accordion and double bass. Getting the music right for the Chuppah is paramount and our repertoire is always selected with great care.

Ambassador’s specialist Klezmer Trio are a traditional Jewish music band can play 15 to 20 minutes while your guests arrive to be seated. They can play music throughout the ceremony where requested and at the end of the ceremony while the guests adjourn to the drinks reception.

The band is acoustic and therefore mobile allowing them to play their instruments whilst leading the guests into the reception room and then carry on with a Simcha set of music.

Hayley and Michael Hyman, Jewish wedding at Plaisterers Hall in London – 6th April 2014

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.
