on the day
PLAY will enhance your special day with beautiful live music. For ceremony bookings we suggest a string quartet or guitarist to set the mood for your guests, as they wait for you to make entrance. For the pre-drinks, a guitar duo, jazz trio or string quartet playing light music is wonderful entertainment and creates the unparalleled ambience of live music.
PLAY shares a love for performing and aspires to provide awesome music, through professionalism, reliability and superb live music!
