with multiple options to soundtrack your day, & no one-size-fits-all approach, we are uniquely equipped to make your day completely one of a kind.

With constantly updating set lists and the ability to read a crowd like an open book, our live bands are perfectly suited to craft the music for your wedding day. Ceremony flash-mobs, processions, music to eat dinner to, big party bands, & late-night DJ sets: we have it all covered.

We're best know for our brass-fuelled line-ups that put improvisation & musicality at the forefront of everything. Always live, always spontaneous, always unique, & always recognisable. No note is ever played to a backing track, allowing our musicians to create an electric atmosphere which fills dance floors and hearts in equal measure. We also carry our own production, including sound, lighting, and a dedicated team to run it.

The quickest way to enquire about any of our bands is by using our contact form, emailing michael@dogbowl.london or calling Michael on +44 (0) 7923539288. You can chat through what would suit your day, and kickstart your custom live band experience.

Many of our musicians perform in multiple ensembles, meaning an entertainment package from us can work out cheaper than booking different bands.

As an example, a schedule making the most of the live music on offer might look like this:

  • Ceremony – a surprise Fat Brass walkabout set to end the ceremony, & lead the procession to the reception venue.

  • Dinner – London Jazz Scene perform contemporary interpretations of jazz standards & the American songbook

Of course all of these bands can be booked individually too, & we can even create a custom band for you, if the exact line-up you are looking for isn't mentioned.

"We booked Fat Brass for our wedding in August 2021 and it was the best decision we made (apart from saying I Do). They played two sets and I have never seen a dance floor so consistently packed at a wedding before. We wanted to create a really upbeat festival vibe at our wedding and Fat Brass were the critical element in creating that. The selection of covers was spot on, with a great variety for everyone, but they also learnt a Fleetwood Mac song for our first dance and serenaded the procession from the church to the marquee with Crazy in Love.

Aside from being an excellent live band, they were also thoroughly professional during the whole process. Emails were promptly responded to, they liaised with the other suppliers with minimum fuss and were very accommodating for various requests.    

I cannot recommend them highly enough."
