WEDDINGS AND CIVIL CEREMONIES
The Debonaires would love to join you on your big day. Vintage themed weddings / civil ceremonies are great fun and so memorable.
For a stylish wedding with a difference, the Debonaires with their talented vocalists, provide that sophisticated vintage sound and atmosphere, keeping the dance floor jumping and swinging, as we emulate the great music from the 20's, 30’s 40’s & 50’s, a style of music still popularized today by artistes such as Caro Emerald, Michael Buble, Jamie Cullum & Robbie Williams. To enjoy our music, you don’t have to know how to dance, just how to have a good time!
If there is a special tune you both share, tell Max what it is, and he will make a special musical arrangement for the band to play for you. A lovely and traditional way to start the dancing.

“ I wanted to follow up on your wedding performance on the 24th November. Your band's performance was excellent and everyone had a wonderful time; I can't tell you how many people came up to me to ask where we found you and how good they said you all were. As a 'small' band you put out a 'big band sound', witness the crowded dance floor. ”
