Gourmet Music specialise in providing suitable music for funeral ceremonies and for gatherings of family and friends, working with both the client and the funeral director to meet your needs. Gourmet Jazz and Gourmet Strings are both available to play your choice of hymns or special pieces of music in whatever style you wish during the ceremony. They can also play at the following reception if required.
The Brideshead Ballroom Stompers can provide a traditional ‘Jazz Funeral’. This often begins with a slow New Orleans style march, ‘Just A Closer Walk With Thee’ or ‘Amazing Grace’ being popular choices, leading the cortege into the church, chapel or crematorium. They can play during the service, performing your choice of hymns or special pieces of music if required and will then lead another processional out, often a celebratory and lively piece such ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’. They too can also play at the following reception, if required, performing a selection of up-tempo numbers.
As funerals are such personal occasions Gourmet Music can offer any of their usual groups, Gourmet Swing, Gourmet Jazz, Gourmet Strings or the Brideshead Ballroom Stompers, but are also happy to provide musicians in whatever style of music or instrumentation you require.
