Imagine the sounds of Sinatra, Davis, Gershwin, Coltrane and countless other timeless romantic songs being crooned to you and your sweet love on your wedding day. "Someone to watch over me" and "At Last" are a couple of songs that are frequently requested. With experience gained from performing at an obscene number of weddings, Dangerous Martini can assist you in planning all the music details of your reception, cocktail hour and ceremony. Careful coordination with your Officiate guarantees that your event will go without a hitch and that you are free to enjoy the party with your guests. We will provide you with our extensive song list from which you can make selections to create the mood, flow and musical theme of your wedding.
You can depend on Dangerous Martini's versatility and more than 25 years of combined experience to bring the highest level of professionalism to your party. Dangerous Martini welcome the opportunity to perform for our wedding planners. We can provide a single musician or jazz ensemble for a small meeting or a 2 to 12 piece band for larger events held anywhere you would like to fly us on the globe. Country music is not allowed at our events. Okay well maybe, but only if there is copious amounts of wine or beer or something stronger on hand for the band.
We have been together for over a decade. You may have seen us perform at The Plush Room, Rasella's Jazz Club and San Francisco Pride Celebration, in San Francisco, CA, the Ledson Wine Castle in Sonoma, or at many special events in the Carneros Wine Country Region of Napa Valley, CA. Our client list is long and distinguished. Here is a recent quote:
We can work with any size budget and consider it to be a great accomplishment to have earned the confidence of those who recognize Dangerous Martini's professionalism who have recommended us to their clients and by hiring us to perform at their important events. We have so much fun playing together, we would love to share our music with you!
1. Walk down the isle to a solo alto saxophone instead of the organ.
2. Have the Groom and Groomsmen wear smoking jackets instead of Tuxedo jackets.
3. Have a jazz standard sung during your wedding ceremony, with just a solo guitarist, like, "Someone to watch over me." Remember to wear waterproof mascara.
4. Have a cigar bar on the back patio during the reception.
5. As table center pieces, float candles and gardenias in those extra large martini glasses and tie a piece of elegant ribbon around the stem.
6. Have a small casino set up in the back at your reception like a Las Vegas "Speak Easy", for those special relatives.
7. Give tiny martini glasses as wedding favors.
8. Do a special toast with a "DANGEROUS MARTINI" as your private special gift to your wedding party and families for making your wedding so much more special by them being there.
9. Have a special Mobile Tiki Tiki Martini Maker go from table to table and mix big fun Hawaiian dangerous drink libations for your guests, umbrellas and all, as they send you off with blessings on your honeymoon.
10. Save money by having both live and DJ music at your wedding. Have Dangerous Martini or a hip jazz quartet play for your wedding procession, vocal solo during the ceremony, & recession. Have us play during the cocktail hour while you are taking photos, and then as you enter, you both walk straight onto the dance floor to do your first dance together as your unconventional grand entrance. You will have plenty of time later to line up and say hello to everyone. Martini Jazz plays for an hour, and then the DJ takes over to get you all down dancing with your bad selves for less than it would cost normally.
Have you ever had a Dangerous Martini?
We did once when we were minding our own business one night at a club in The Mission District of San Francisco, and we have never ever been the same since. We asked the bartender to make us something new and unusual. He did, and it was amazing. We had thoughts that such a martini would be perfect to be served as a wedding cocktail. Of course we have dangerously Tré-kicked upgraded this wicked concoction from it's original version for your drinking pleasure.
Ladies & Gentleman, Brides & Grooms, we give you...
In a martini shaker add:
