Una can provide the perfect background music for your Drinks Reception. Una will work with you to create a bespoke setlist which sets the right atmosphere for your pre-dinner drinks. Some couples may want a more elegant classical sound, while others may want a more modern alternative. Whether you want to have an easy listening vibe, or a more upbeat style, Una will work with you to create the perfect music accompaniment.

If you would prefer to leave the song choices to Una, she will create a setlist based on the style you want. There are 3 sample set lists below to give an idea of the repertoire for the different styles Una can perform. These are performed with backing tracks. If you want a completely live performance, piano accompaniment can be organised. Una performs for approximately 2 hours of the drinks reception.
