You did it! You’ve found the band that can make your special day stand out as a truly spirited event for all ages! After fifteen years of performing up and down the East Coast, Sac Au Lait is experienced in appealing to a wide spectrum of audiences. We started off playing bars, where we learned how get the party going. Then we added swing dances to our calendar, where we honed our skills of getting folks moving. We got into this music to have fun, let us bring that energy to your celebration!
We’ve played wedding ceremonies and receptions in the Baltimore/DC area’s best spots to get hitched: the Evergreen Mansion, Peabody Library, the beautiful Tulip Garden in Guilford, the great ballrooms at The Belvedere in Mount Vernon, Chase Court, Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Annapolis Yacht Club, Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace, and the Washington Golf and Country Club… just to name a few!
We can be a part of any or all of the parts of your special day and can arrange to suit just about any budget – no matter intimate or grand an event you have planned. We supply and run all of our own sound equipment. Contact us to tell us about your plans and how we can help.
Ceremony– if you are looking for some trad jazz wedding music, we can offer some favorites that are appropriate for processions.
Parading – an option that really separates Sac Au Lait from the rest is our ability to march. This is a popular option either as a transition from the ceremony to cocktail hour or cocktail hour to reception. We’ve also paraded from the venue to the after party. A New Orleans style Second Line through the streets with the newly-weds leading the pack is an unforgettable time.
Cocktail Hour – as the newly-weds make their entrance, during hors d’ouevres, or the early stages of the reception, the band can go acoustic, be mobile, play outdoors, ‘street style’, etc.
Dinner – the band has a set of light music for during dinner. We come with a PA system, which can be used to make toasts and announcements. In addition, a DJ service is provided during dinner to keep the party going during the moments when you don’t want live music.
Dancing – of course after dinner and the formalities, if you are looking to get everyone straight onto the dance floor then you need a serious band. This is where Sac Au Lait earned their reputation – playing music for the dance floor!
