As a Wedding Band:

TipToe can perform a set that perfectly suits your event, whether that means quieter, relaxed background music, or lively danceable music for evening receptions. For louder evening swing dance sets, a drummer is available for an additional charge. The band have an impressively long list of songs on their repertoire (see an example set list below) and are happy to learn the couple’s first dance song as standard. If there is a song you’re especially wanting to be included in your big day, they are also able to learn additional songs for a small fee.

Although the band only has four members, they are able to produce a lush, full sound, and their compact set up makes for a stress-free big day. The band are able to provide PA for use both in indoor and dry outdoor venues (fully PAT tested of course, and with Public Liability Insurance).

“I can’t recommend TipToe enough – from start to finish, they were simply a joy to work with. Stunning vocals, beautifully unobtrusive horn playing and a very down-to-earth approach all created a really fantastic atmosphere in the room. Personal professionalism at its finest!” – Colin McAuley

Repertoire:

TipToe have a wide repertoire consisting of both jazz standards and more modern pieces, from the memorable and sweetly sentimental L.O.V.E (Nat King Cole) to the joyful and more fast-paced I Want You Back (Jackson 5). All songs are interpreted with a smooth sophistication, charming listeners with a fresh perspective on the music of greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis and Stevie Wonder. All four band members have an incredibly high level of musicianship and can improvise inspired parts, whilst staying true to the songs you love; in particular, vocalist Alice Higgins is able to tie it all together with a stunningly velvety vocal tone and an understated but highly skilful interpretation of all songs.
