We love being a part of your big day.

We love hearing about your music requests. From the traditional to the whacky, we’ll take it in our stride. We have lots of ideas for how to bring something unique to your wedding day. From using our Jukebox facility, to requesting ‘mash-up’ arrangements of your favourite songs, anything is possible!

We’ll be on hand to answer all of your questions about the music for your wedding or event. Our mission in life is to make it as stress-free as possible to have live music at your event. We respond to emails rapidly so that you aren’t left waiting. On the day, we set-up like ninjas so you don’t even notice us, and we’ll be ready to accompany your day.

Bride running late ? Don’t worry – we stop it getting awkward by playing relaxing music to keep the guests and the groom from becoming too anxious!

It’s not just about weddings though. We also love to be found playing at a garden party, a regimental mess dinner, or even in someone’s living room. We’ll be full of smiles and music for a good birthday  / wedding anniversary party.

The Bossard Quartet came recommended to me by a music teacher I know, and they didn’t disappoint. Their music repertoire is incredible – something for all tastes, and they played beautifully on the day. The Quartet were the perfect choice for our wedding at Goodwood House – and during the wedding breakfast moved to play on the balcony in the Main Hall so our guests could continue to enjoy the music.

 

Clare & Darren Wedding at Goodwood House
Read a Q&A from Clare

I just wanted to let you know that the Quartet were fantastic at the weekend. The standard of the performance was exceptional, with exactly the right blend of music for the occasion. They reacted well to all the procedural nonsense that goes with a formal dinner night and their rehearsal with Mr Vice paid off, as he/they were spot on for the Loyal Toast. I couldn’t have asked for more and hope they enjoyed the evening too and were fully looked after. I am about to handover in my appointment but will certainly recommend the Quartet to my successor.
