The Original Black Diamonds - All you favourites in fine vintage style.
The Original Black Diamonds's profile picture
Swing & Jive band

The Original Black Diamonds can be a three or five piece skiffle band who play original skiffle and rock n roll as well as well known contemporary songs with a skiffle twist. Consisting of vocals, archtop guitar, double bass, washboard, harmonica and spoons. We can also add drums and lead guitar for larger events and venues and are always keen to skiffle up one or two of your own favourites to personalise the moment ........ Imagine : • Walking down the aisle to 'Love me Tender' • Welcoming people to your reception with 'Three Steps to Heaven' • 'Dirty Dancing' your first dance to a skiffle beat! You request and we'll suggest. We can offer you music for each part of your wedding day, tailored to your individual wishes: • The Ceremony - Subtle acoustic music or something more upbeat as your guests arrive, and as the bride walks down the aisle. The choice is yours! • The Reception - Light instrumental strummings and classics to create a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. Easy listening! • The Party - Time to don your dancing shoes and let your hair down with our evening show. This is what your day was always leading up to. Hey ho! Let's go! "The day wouldn't have been the same without you guys. Can't thank you enough!" - Paul & Sarah from Greenwich "Fab atmosphere... superb playing & a wicked sense of humour. We didn't stop talking about it all honeymoon." - Simon & Lucy from West Yorkshire.
