What do we offer?
All Occasions Music is run by professional musicians Leigh Etherington and Mark Ridout, who have been organising music for and performing at functions for many years, gaining wide ranging experience from house parties, barbecues, weddings and anniversaries to company promotions, summer balls and celebrity occasions.
We usually perform in the South, South East and Midland Areas but depending on the circumstances can consider any part of the UK.
We can tailor the music to fit your occasion exactly e.g. a sophisticated duo for a sit down meal followed by a livelier band for entertainment/dancing later on.
Our demonstration CD provides you with a taste of the high standard and versatility that we offer, but of course we can provide the ideal band of any size and line-up for your occasion, drawing from a pool of experienced professional musicians.
