Live Percussion

Get Interactive with your guests

Looking for fun wedding entertainment ideas? Check out our live percussionists! It’s an exciting add-on that brings an added sense of energy to your reception. Our live percussionist sets up next to your DJ and follows their lead as they play along. They bring tambourines & shakers and invite your guests to play too. It makes for great photo ops! Newlyweds, wedding party members, guests and kids often join in. It’s a unique option if you can’t decide between a DJ or a live band. It’s like you’re getting both. From the moment your guests walk in the room it’ll be sure to capture their interest and be a topic of conversation at dinner!
