CLASSICAL GUITAR DUO
Derek Taylor and Jonathan Priestley
Music for Weddings, parties and corporate events.
Are you looking for soothing, gentle, romantic background music for your occasion? The classical guitar is ideal for this. The guitar is unobtrusive and sounds beautiful in the background while you enjoy yourselves. Both Derek Taylor and myself are highly experienced in playing on these occasions we have been playing at Weddings and parties for a number of years now. Whether you wish to hire us both to play at your event ( Recommended ) or one of us to play for your event, please do go to the contacts page and get in touch with me.
Getting Married? Many Congratulations to you both. When it comes to music for a wedding, it is always a good idea to plan your music. Our music is ideal for either your ceremony, drinks reception or Wedding Breakfast. Have a listen to some samples of the kind of music we play and see if it is what you are looking for. For your ceremony, it always good to choose a piece tailor made for your needs. We can always discuss this in the near future. A popular choice is Pachelbel’s Canon in D. Here is a sample of Derek and I playing this.
As for the background music for either the Drinks Ceremony or Wedding Breakfast, we play a combination of Spanish, South American and popular standards. We usually play on electro acoustic guitars for this part of the wedding because you would not be able to hear us play once the celebrating starts. We are careful not to drown you out with volume but amplify enough for you to be able to hear us without distracting you. Our aim is to let the music float in the background giving a relaxed mood. Here are two beautiful Mexican pieces. The first clip is called ”La Llorana” and the following one is called ”Las Mananitas”
If you you prefer just a soloist , please get in touch and one of us can provide music for you.
