Looking for A Peaky Blinders Band?

Then the hugely successful Ritz Trio could be a great addition to a Peaky Blinders vintage or retro wedding. From 2020 the Ritz Trio will be offering a Peaky Blinders look as an option instead of their normal smart white tuxedos!

With over twenty years of experience providing quality wedding entertainment the Ritz Trio WILL make your vintage or retro wedding truly memorable.

There’s nothing more classy than a vintage theme and judging by the number of themed weddings the Ritz Trio perform at the idea remains ever popular with couples.

You can of course mix your themes.  Recently the Trio played at a wedding which used their services to help create the 1920’s and later in the day another band moved things on to the 1980’s complete leg warmers!

Peaky Blinders Band

Spurred on by the recent success of the Peaky Blinders film, the Ritz Trio step back in time to the cobbled backstreets, hang up their white tuxedos for overcoats, three-piece suits and peaked caps! Bring on the beer, Irish whisky, gin, spiced rum and champagne!

The music is firmly set to pay homage to the 1920 – 30’s.

The Roaring 20’s

Roaring 20’s weddings remain popular. The Gatsby theme affords great possibilities for dressing the venue not to mention the guests! Gatsby feathers, headbands, long pearl necklaces, cigarette holders and spiffy pinstriped suits all look great!

The Trio have a special programme of tunes from the roaring 20’s including “The Charleston” and of course “Putting On The Ritz”. Other well known tunes include Bye Bye Blackbird, Five Foot Two Eyes of Blue and The Sheik of Araby. Guests will be sure to have a roaring great time!

Themed Venues

Themed vintage and retro weddings  allow couples to add their own personal touches to create something that is truly unique and individual. The flexibility of a vintage theme is that you can adapt it to fit your tastes.

In recent years there have been an increase in the number of barn and Byre wedding venues. One venue which springs to mind, and which the Ritz Trio perform at regularly, is Kinkell Byre in St Andrews. It’s large spaces provide a great environment for couples to create their themed wedding.

Music For Your Wedding Ceremony

As the Ritz Trio are able to easily move locations why not consider using the Trio to play for your ceremony and then for the drinks reception?

The band has serenaded many brides down the aisle and the group’s guitarist is able to play appropriate solo pieces to add variety and change the mood during the signing of the register.

If you are wanting a more traditional element to the ceremony, the Trio often use the services of a violinist or a flautist to play alongside the guitarist performing many of the often requested ceremony pieces such as Pachelbel Canon in D and Highland Cathedral.

Other tunes we are often asked to play include Tonight, Tonight (From Westside Story), It Had To Be You, Air On G String, Here There And Everywhere (Beatles),What A Wonderful World, Moon River and Fly Me To The Moon.

We can also make suggestions for a few more contemporary pieces using the violin with the Ritz Trio throughout your ceremony and of course we are always happy to hear your own music ceremony requests!

Once the ceremony is over the Trio can quickly and with no fuss move through to “jazz up” your themed retro drinks reception!

                                                                        

Contact the Ritz Trio to discuss how we can add an elegant and entertaining addition to your vintage or retro wedding!
