Noise Limiter Experience
Our standard wedding package is £995 plus travel. Included in this is:
| Up to two hours of live music - no backing tracks, no sequencers, no harmonisers! We will keep your guests dancing all night.
| 6pm arrival, booked until midnight.
| Request a song. We will learn and perform your first dance, or another song that is special to you, to make your night unique.
| Background music. We can provide background music for your guests, and we're not afraid to turn it up as the party gets started! If you're a Spotify user we can customise these playlists for you ahead of your event. Alternatively, you can bring your own device and play your favourite music.
| Venue liaison. We will talk to your venue or planner to sort out all the practicalities of our performance, so you don't have to.
We can also offer additional services to personalise your wedding:
| Additional song requests. If you want to personalise things even further, we can learn and perform more of your favourite songs.
| The Players 'Live Lounge'. If you want us to play a laid back acoustic set to start the evening off, we can do that in addition to our normal performance
| Wedding DJ service. We can provide a wedding DJ service for a fraction of the cost of a normal DJ. Saving you time and money.
We're four musicians from York, North Yorkshire. We came together to entertain audiences at wedding, parties, balls and any event that needs great live music.
We don't believe that size is important - it's what you do that counts! As a four-piece band we can cater for smaller, more intimate, events where larger function bands might struggle because of size and cost. But we're equally at home on big stages!

One year on we still can't say enough good things.
The most amazing wedding band!! If we could do our wedding over they would be the first thing on the list! One year on and we still can't say enough good things. We had s...
We’ve done so many it’s hard to choose, but the one where everything had to be taken to and from the venue by boat is pretty hard to forget!
What about your business are you most proud of?
We’re really proud of our customer service. We often get couples telling us how much of a difference it has made to their day, and how easy we made the whole process.
What makes a romantic first dance?
It really differs from one wedding to the next - and it has a lot to do with the couple’s history. But we do have a soft spot for a big singalong! Not very romantic but it always feels like a massive celebration!
