Processional – music to accompany the Groom, Bride and wedding party down the aisle.
Ceremonial tunes – sung by the Rabbi/Chazan, e.g. Sheva Brachot, Im Eshkachech
Breaking of the Glass– a lively “Chosn Kale Mazaltov!”medley after the groom breaks the glass.

Chuppah Audio Samples
Wow! You were wonderful. We have had so many messages saying how excellent the evening was – so many people loved the band, and we can’t thank you enough. The music, as you know full well, is such an important part of the evening and we could not have hoped for anything better. Really Stirling, you did such a wonderful job and we simply can’t think of anyone who would have been more perfect.
Thank you so much to you and the rest of the band for your general awesomeness on Sunday. The chuppah music was beautiful and just how we wanted it. As for the evening – wow, what a show! You have a great voice and all of your musicians were just fabulous. The music was smart, fun and sophisticated – again, just what we wanted, and such a pleasure to dance to a band who really know the genres. Thanks again for everything!
