The Get Downs Lite are a smaller version of our main function band The Get Downs. Just like the larger function band, The Get Downs Lite perform a great mix of swing and soul music that is popular with audiences of all ages, and is great at getting people up and dancing at wedding receptions and private parties.
We know that at weddings you need to carefully manage your budget, which is why we’ve made The Get Downs Lite - a smaller version of our main party band. This 6-piece band performs one set of swing music and one set of soul, Motown and pop music - you can also add a guitarist for a funkier sound.
Made up of the same fantastic professional musicians as our larger band, The Get Downs Lite deliver a fantastic, energetic performance that will get your guests on the floor from the first song to the last.
It’s often possible to “upgrade” to a larger line-up closer to your event if your budget allows, and if you decide you’d like to take advantage of the larger repertoire list, and the fuller, punchier sound delivered by the larger band.
The Get Downs consist of female vocals, piano, bass, drums, trumpet and saxophone. To increase the band's repertoire, you can add a guitarist – and the band also available as part of our wedding music packages, meaning you can have great live musical entertainment throughout your whole wedding day.
