The Hornets

“My friends and family all said how fantastic the Hornets were and that they’ve never heard or seen anything like them before!” - Marquee wedding in Somerset

  2. Lively music for dancing or more mellow background music – you decide!
  3. Five-piece band, featuring trumpet, sax, trombone, sousaphone and drums, but...
  4. …can reduce to a four-piece (without either trombone or sax) or, for background/strolling music, even a three-piece (without drums)…
  5. Unamplified means their set-up takes a matter of minutes and they can move location easily if required
