An exclusive and experienced Jewish wedding band based in London

Choosing the perfect Jewish wedding band in London can be a tricky decision. You obviously want great live music at your wedding in London or the surrounding counties, and many wedding bands will offer this, but it is also very important that your chosen Jewish wedding band has experience in performing at Jewish Weddings in Surrey.

An experienced Simcha band will be able to provide the live music for the whole day including the music for the Chuppah ceremony, the Hora and the party music for the evening reception.

Soul Factor has extensive experience performing at Jewish weddings in London and Surrey and are fully aware of all traditional elements involved. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need any further advice.

How traditional will the Jewish wedding be?

Planning a Jewish wedding dance can include a number of traditional Jewish dances interspersed between contemporary and secular music. The bride and groom often decide what to include based on how traditional the wedding festivities will be. Jewish weddings often have many customs passed down from generation to generation, and dancing is no exception.

Contemporary couples may choose to devote only a small portion of their wedding reception music to participating in classic traditional dances. They may base this upon their own wishes, requests from parents, or the number of guests who are familiar with these dances. If a large percentage of the guests are not familiar with Jewish wedding customs it is courteous to include more contemporary or even secular music along with the traditional dances. Of course the final decision on how to conduct the wedding music is up to the bridge and groom!

Chuppah musicians

The Chuppah is the most important part of your wedding day and choosing the right music for your Chuppah should be considered carefully. It is most common for us to provide a duo of piano and saxophone (or clarinet) for this part of the day and the performance would normally consist of the following parts: 10 to 20 minutes before the ceremony (whilst your guests arrive and are seated), the procession of the bride down the aisle, performance during the ceremony and 10 to 15 minutes after the ceremony for the Simcha music.
