Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line-up is a Trio (Saxophone, Bass, Keyboard). We can also perform as a duo with just Saxophone and Keyboard. We can also make the band as large as you require up to a full six-piece jazz/pop band including Vocals, Bass, Drums, Guitar, Keyboard and Saxophone.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Timings inevitably change somewhat in the planning stage of a wedding. We always try our best to be as flexible as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Spotify DJ Playlist service between sets comes included in the price.

How much time do you need to set up?

Set up time is ideally 45-90 minutes. We may be able to accommodate quicker set up times if necessary.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

You can completely tailor your set if you would like to. We tend to get a more general idea from the client what direction they would like to go in and work from there.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

All necessary equipment including PA and basic lighting if required is included in the quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are happy to learn songs for your event.

Great band! We booked Starlight as a trio to play music for our wedding ceremony and reception. The communication was really good and reassuring before our wedding and they really made sure everything was perfect for our day. Our guests loved them.

Speaking to Kerry before we booked him on our big day, we were really specific…. Probably the most specific with any supplier as we wanted to have a certain sound and feel for our Wedding. Not only was Kerry more than happy to accommodate our stylistic preferences, he was even able to give some brilliant suggestions, and at short notice, when we compiled a small playlist of the songs to be played during the guests arrival, during the Wedding reception ceremony and post ceremony celebrations; Kerry and the team were able to take upon these song requests, learn these, actually take on board the tempo and the tune, the acoustics, and to play from different youtube videos and make it into their own Guests were really able to take some fantastic pictures and stories on their Instagram, things they really wanted to share and impress upon their friends and online followers shows how much how much of a great day and experience they had and Kerry Williams and the Starlight team were really able to set the scene. Starlight Jazz were the first ones there to take the guests through the journey before we got married and also keep them entertained straight after we got married whilst we were taking our photos as people were catching up, and keeping them entertained up until the moment they entered for the Wedding reception breakfast.. So big round of applause from us, congratulations once again and thank you so much and we would be able to recommend you to anyone for those that want a Saxophonist or a band to play at a Wedding or any other function so Kerry and the Starlight team thank you! Best Wishes San & Maria Sofitel St. James
