Top Tips on Picking Your Wedding Music

Consider Your Crowd

You know your family and friends the best, pick music that will get every single member of your party on their feet for the whole evening. It’s important to pick a band that can play a variety of music to suit every age of music at your party. It’s also important to consider what kind of band will best represent you as a couple.

Go See The Band Live

It is important to see a #band live, it truly allows you to see what they sound like and the atmosphere they create on stage. This is why at Jonny Ross Music we host showcase evenings every 3 months. They’re the perfect event to see a range of bands, #acoustic acts, #stringquartets and #jazzbands. They’re the perfect event to book your #weddingmusic, see them live, check their availability and book on the night! For information on our next showcase events visit www.jonnyrossmusic.com/showcase


The DJ Playlist 

Picking the DJ music for your evening can be quite a daunting task, that’s why with every DJ or band and DJ booking we set up an online forum where you and your guests can make requests prior to the evening. It’s the perfect opportunity for us to see what type of #music you and your guests are after prior to the wedding. We then speak to each bride and groom before the event to put together the perfect playlist

Wedding Band Leeds

Review in Leeds City Dweller from a recent gig at The Botanist

I have always loved the Botanist; I was enticed by its atmosphere and cosy wooden feel. It warms you up on a cold winter evening (and I don’t just mean by turning the heating up). It has an inviting relaxed ambience which envelopes you as you listen to the live acoustic music. I went on a Wednesday night to have a bite to eat and a drink or three whilst being serenaded by the local musical talent. We sat at one of the tables by the bar and proceeded to order a few ‘nibbles’ to make sure the cocktails wouldn’t go down the wrong way. We decided on the cumberland and pork chipolatas with honey grain mustard, salt and pepper onion petals and a deli board with meats and cheese. It was all delicious and a perfect mid week ‘pre drink’ bite.

For those of you that know the Botanist, you will know cocktails are their speciality; and for those that don’t, I am here to tell you just how special they are. I only have limited words for my article, so I can’t talk about them all; although I would if I could. We had different cocktails each time so we could sample a few and then decided on our favourites. Rachel being a lover of the classic Caipirinha fell in love with the Botanist’s Basil and Plum version. I myself, was torn between the English Mojito (English because it’s made with Gin) with its cool and fresh cucumber finish and the Raspberry and Thyme Martini. The latter was a risky choice, I wasn’t sure about thyme in a drink but I was pleasantly surprised; it set it off beautifully.

The Botanist

The Botanist

All of their cocktails have a unique edge, making each drink a new, exciting taste sensation. In their most recent charity venture, The Botanist bartenders had competed against one another to create a charity cocktail which would be sold throughout the month of October to raise money for The Haven Breast Cancer Support Centre. The aptly named winning cocktail ‘Seventh Haven’, tastes like liquid chocolate orange, made with ‘Bloom Gin’, to add a unique floral edge to the ‘heavenly’ charity cocktail. It was wonderful to see our local businesses supporting such a worthy cause. I am secretly hoping they decide to make it a permanent feature, if not I am more than happy with the incredible selection they already have.

You would think the cocktails would be the highlight of the night and although a close second, the music topped it for me. I knew The Botanist had live music but what I didn’t know was, it is every night! They have an array of professional singers and musicians each with a different style. Although they will always play to the crowd, they tend to have duo acts on the busier nights to give it a bit more oomph and more mellow acts on the calmer evenings to suit to mood.

The Botanist

The Botanist

We were lucky enough to experience the dulcet tones of Jonny Ross. He started singing a few well known numbers, ranging from Mumford and Sons to a bit of John Legend. He even threw in his own adaptation of ‘Lucky’ by Pharrell Williams. His version was amazing; he had me silenced (which is difficult to achieve I can tell you). He then said the words we had been waiting to hear… ‘any requests’. We threw a few challenging ones at him over the course of the evening and what was really impressive is he knew them all! He is the ‘rain man’ of the music world, not only that but he actually runs a couple of the largest music agencies in the UK. The Botanist has really gone all out to provide Leeds with top entertainment. Rachel then decided to change (some may say lower) the tone and requested a ‘Back Street Boys’ classic. Jonny looked a little hesitant, that was until half of the bar had started signing ‘I want it that way’; even the bar staff were dancing along! We had an amazing evening, the staff could not have been lovelier and for me that makes the world of difference. Great atmosphere, amazing cocktails and vivacious music; three darn good reasons to head down to The Botanist.

What a lovely email to receive this morning, from a wedding we did at The Priory Cottages – Yorkshire! Along with some cracking images of the evening!

A huge thank you to Jonny and his band for the superb entertainment at our wedding at the gorgeous Priory Cottages, nr Wetherby. Amongst all the drama with the Tour De France weekend, you managed to get to us with minimal fuss and provide top class music! We had so many wonderful comments from our guests and they certainly danced the night away! Ellie continued with the excellent entertainment on the DJ stand, and was very accommodating to our guest’s requests! From the moment we heard your music we wanted you at our wedding and you didn’t let us down. Fantastic service, music and we would highly recommend you to all our friends and family.

Review from wedding at The Woodlands Leeds

Jonny Ross Band: an exceptional end to an exceptional day!

Top quality band and top quality service. Jonny and the gang played live at our wedding in May 2014 (Leeds) and it was definitely one of the highlights of the entire day.

Firstly, Jonny met us a month or so before to discuss things and even helped us sort out are first dance ‘mash up’ and right after our humiliation on the dance floor the whole band kicked in and played ‘hey ho’ by the Lumineers (that we requested) and got everyone up and singing along. That set the president for whole the evening really. They had an extensive set list to pick from but we basically said we wanted a nice mix of old and new to dance to and they nailed it: from early 60s Motown to recent hits, the songs were perfect for everyone and there wasn’t a single space on the dance floor all night (it actually had to be extended!). Through in a couple of slow burners for the lovers in the room and it was the perfect complement to our wedding day. Absolutely everyone had a great time and it is a testament to their appeal. Then to top it off Jonny turned DJ and kept everyone dancing till the early hours!

Thanks to Jonny and the band, the whole entertainment planning etc., was effortless for us, meaning we just got stuck in and enjoyed the party! I couldn’t recommend a better band/DJ, their versatility and experience will definitely help make your day that bit better!

Really cannot thank you guys enough. All the best.

Fantastic review from a recent wedding at East Riddlesden Hall

Good Morning Jonny,
We would just like to send you a quick email to say thank you for making our wedding day the perfect day. Tom was fantastic, and his version of “All of me” (our first dance) in our opinion was better than the original. All our guests commented on how fantastic the band were and it seems to be one of the talking points of the day. They kept the dance floor full all night and the dj’ing after was perfect playing good music and also those god awful requests (keeping our guests happy).

So once again thank you so much, & we will recommend people to check out Jonnyrossmusic.com

Wedding DJ at Great John Street Manchester

Lovely review from Jenny and Adam who’s wedding we did on 2nd August at Great John Street Manchester!

★★★★★ Ellie, one of the DJ’s at Jonny Ross Music supplied the music for our wedding reception on Sat 2nd August. The company, particularly Jonny who we spoke directly too during our initial enquiry and organisation, was superb. Out of the many DJ’s we rang he was the only one who rang me back the same day (many of the others didn’t even bother!) and was helpful, polite, informative right from the off. Ellie our DJ was superb, she rang us prior to the wedding to find out our tastes, get to know us and was very flexible with everything. Ellie set up all the equipment discreetly and brought disco lights for atmosphere. She played a few extra songs at the end as the party was still going and smiled the whole time! Jonny Ross Music also has an online programme where you and/or your guests can enter songs to be played which worked great for us. Thank you Jonny and Ellie. Jenny and Adam.

Live at Tour De France THIS WEEKEND!!!

The Dare 2b Festival of Cycling is home to the official ceremonial start of the Tour De France, and throughout the weekend there will be various sources of entertainment, which will include live music from Jonny Ross and his Band. Fronted by Jonny, the band also includes a two-piece brass section, lead guitar, keyboards, bass and drums.


Performing most weekends the Jonny Ross band is no stranger to putting on a great show, never failing to entertain the crowd with an energetic performance. The set for this weekend will include a mixture of genre from rock, blues, reggae/ska and pop. Individual songs will include ‘Hotel California’ by The Eagles, ‘Could you be loved’ by Bob Marley and recently topping the charts, ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams. Cycling in Yorkshire is fast becoming a popular pastime and to be able to host such an event as the start of the Tour De France will surely boost its popularity even more. Jonny Ross and his band feel privileged to be a part of such a huge festival, and performing on the center stage on Sunday will be an experience second to none. Being a family festival, the set of music has been carefully chosen to cater for all musical tastes, so do come on down to the center stage on Sunday 6th July to enjoy your festival with the Jonny Ross Band, who will be ready to entertain you with a great set of lively music!
