Cocktail Hour

Your guests can enjoy cocktail piano, acoustic guitar, or the full band as they anxiously await the arrival of the new Mr. & Mrs.! Separate sound system is available if the cocktail hour is in a different location from the reception.

With two of our band members being church music directors, they have experience with hundreds of ceremonies. Choose from organ, piano, acoustic guitar, vocalists, or fanfare brass for your Prelude, Processional, and Recessional music.

There's nothing better than a live band to enhance your reception. Dine to softer background music that is at a level for your guests to converse comfortably. Then watch as they all jump to their feet when we kick off the dancing with high- energy party music. We also throw in just the right number of ballads for all the couples. Our extensive song list allows you to customize the style of music you'd like, or leave it up to us to provide a mix of genres that every age group will enjoy.

Our wedding reception package includes:
  • Our 9-piece band - Aqua Groove consists of musicians who rehearse and perform together regularly- Guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, trumpet, trombone, sax, and male and female vocalists. No karaoke tracks, midis, or computer imitations. We are real musicians proud to play real instruments!!
  • Various styles of music - Choose your favorite genres of music from our extensive song list- Rock, Top 40, Motown, Swing, Disco, R&B- or leave it up to our expertise in weddings to select a mixture that all your guests will love.
  • Professional sound system - Our 4,000 watt system with dual subwoofers is perfect for a large, outdoor gatherings or can be scaled down for smaller, intimate venues.
  • Stage lighting - Create that perfect atmosphere with our set of rack lights.
  • Master of Ceremonies throughout the event - We are not an average “bar” band. Wedding receptions require a personable and professional emcee to welcome in the bridal party, announce the arrival of the bride and groom, and call attention to toasts, special dances, cake cutting, and traditional customs.
  • Recorded music during our breaks – Never a lull in the music!! We'll load up on a variety of music, or you can give us a device with all your favorites which we can run through our sound system.
  • Customized timeline – We will work closely with you and your wedding coordinator to make your vision of your special day a reality. Not sure where to begin? We'll help you with developing a timeline to ensure that the reception flows smoothly from start to finish! Click here for our Reception Planning Form.
  • Event Insurance - If requested or necessary for your venue.
